In February this year, a surgical light suddenly fell from the ceiling in the operating room of United Hospital. The HA indicated at the time that it was very dissatisfied with the performance of the contractor, Getinge, and pointed out that it would depend on the contractor's past performance before deciding whether to win the tender. However, the reporter of "Hong Kong 2" found earlier that Getinge won at least three HA contracts in the following six months, involving an amount of more than 01 million yuan, including being responsible for supplying and installing ceiling brackets for hospitals.
Winning the bid after scoring: I think it's not a good idea
HA Chairman Fan Hung-ling pointed out that Getinge still won the bid three times after the fact because HA has an established bid examination system with different items for scoring, and Getinge won the bid after scoring. But he confessed: "I feel that it is not good, but it can be regarded as if nothing happened." Fan Hongling also pointed out that the HA had decided not to accept bids from the contractor until the claim for the surgical lamp case was resolved.
The Chief Executive Officer of HA, Mr Ko Ba Sun, also reiterated his dissatisfaction with the performance of the contractor involved in the case and initiated legal proceedings to recover due to its deficiencies in maintenance and repair. He also said that it was not convenient to mention the contents of individual tenders, but after the incident, HA set up a review committee, and various parties provided a lot of opinions on the incident, and the Bureau is also following up.
He also pointed out that past performance, service quality and major accidents would also be considered when evaluating bids, and there was also a suspension clause in the contract, emphasizing that if the contractor did not play well and made any mistakes, it would definitely be held accountable.
During the treatment of the female patient Deng Guisi in the United Hospital in 2017, it was suspected that acute liver failure was caused by the doctor's prescription of drugs, and she died after two liver changes, and the doctors involved Lin Zikun and Chen Xiaojian were withdrawn earlier. Fan Hongling said that he was saddened by the unfortunate incident and once again expressed his condolences to his family, and the HA also learned lessons to improve the diagnosis process to avoid the recurrence of similar incidents.
He also pointed out that the doctor involved was relieved after the charges were withdrawn, and other colleagues also breathed a sigh of relief, but he said that he had no opinion on the prosecution principle of the authorities, and "told me not to make a decision."
