Farrer Park Hospital's Nursing Care and Multidisplinary Team efforts gets a thumbs up!
Madam Cao, 69 from Sichuan China is blessed with a wonderful and supportive family. When they found out she had a tumour in her stomach, they were very concerned and as the prognosis was dire, they decided to do whatever they could to save her.

With the critical diagnosis, they decided the best place was Singapore. Focusing the search for the best available care in Singapore, Madam Li, Madam Cao’s daughter decided on Farrer Park Hospital. This decision came through consultations with many of their trusted friends who have gone for medical treatments abroad. The hospital is new, facilities are nice and importantly, have experienced doctors that came highly recommended.
Part of the team of specialists are in the middle (from left, in clockwise direction) Dr Nicholas Chew, Infectious Disease, Dr Chong Kian Tai, Urology, Dr Richard Chew, General Surgery and Dr Tan Yew Oo, Medical Oncology.
“We understand that there is never a 100% in terms of medical outcome. But our mother was very ill, we were prepared for the worst. But we knew we had to find the best available option and at least give it a shot. We are glad that we chose Farrer Park Hospital because it was truly a team effort. It wasn’t just one doctor, but the whole team. From Dr Tan Yew Oo for cancer treatment, Dr Richard for surgery, Dr Chong Kian Tai, Urology, Dr Khong Kok Sun, Orthopedics, Dr Robert Lim, Medical Oncology, Dr Nicholas Chew, Infectious Diseases and Dr Joy Tan, Ophthalmology” said Madam Li.

Our family was very impressed by how responsible, responsive and dedicated the doctors were. They answered all our questions and handled us with such professionalism and kindness.”
Having spent over 10 months in Singapore, Madam Cao and her family got to know the hospital, doctors and staff well. “The whole experience has been a great one. The nurses at IPS 8 are my family. They take better care of me than my daughters!” Madam Cao joked. Madam Li tears up as she recalls how gentle the nurses are when they bathe Madam Cao every morning. They spoon-fed her on her worst days and make it a point to take her out to view the gardens and farm so she doesn’t feel cooped up. “I am lost for words to be able to thank all the nurses at IPS 8. Even the nurses who cannot speak mandarin will call her mama.” Indeed, the language of care is universal because it does not need translation, it is intuitive and it is felt.

Madam Cao and her family will be going home to celebrate her 70th birthday just round the corner. They are grateful that this is possible through the care they received at Farrer Park Hospital.

The Farrer Park Hospital team wishes Madam Cao and family the very best. We are honoured to have played a part in her journey toward health, happy that she is back with her loving family and humbled at the kind words of her experience.
