Housemanship Stuffs


 

This is the number of house officers as of end of April 2010 in HKL , the biggest hospital in our country:

Number of housemen in the unit

Orthopaedic Department
52

O & G Unit
50

Medical Department
72

Surgical Department
57

Paediatric Department
62

Just as an illustration, the orthopedic unit mentioned in the table above has 182 beds. With 52 house officers, it amounts to 1 houseman to slightly more than 3 patients.. A ratio you would not be able to find anywhere else in the world, believe me! Not even in the most advanced country!
