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
O & G Unit
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!
