UCSI Hospital Welcomes Its First Baby / UCSI医院迎来第一个新生婴儿!




"This is a special moment for the hospital and me. It is an honour for us to be able to serve the community within a few days of our opening." - Dr Victor Chin.


On March 25 2021, UCSI Hospital open its doors for business. Six days later, on April 1, UCSI Hospital welcomed the hospital's first newborn baby, the birth of a new life like the sunrise, but also make this new hospital more vibrant!

UCSI Hospital gynaecologist Dr Victor Chin shared his delight over the news.

"This is a special moment for the hospital and me. It is an honour for us to be able to serve the community within a few days of our opening." He said.

Having served in various hospitals in Australia and Malaysia since 2013, Dr Victor Chin brought his wealth of experience to UCSI Hospital's Obstetrics and Gynaecology unit.

On the delivery of the baby at UCSI Hospital, he shared that the mother had decided to deliver at the hospital because her blood pressure was high, and her amniotic fluid was low.

"The baby was due over five days ago, which is a worrying situation. As such, I decided that the baby needs to delivered immediately." He added.

Naturally, the lady and her family were concerned about the hospital's staff and equipment since it started operating just a few days ago. However, she heeded Dr Victor Chin's advice and admitted herself to the maternity ward.

"Both the mother and I hoped for a natural delivery. Yet, as a gynaecologist, I need to be wary of the circumstances that may change. And due to some complication, I decided to perform a caesarean delivery to ensure the safety of both mother and child." He concurred.

"On that day, the 13 of us, comprising nine nurses and four doctors, were delighted to welcome UCSI Hospital's first baby. I want to thank the team for assisting me with the operation, especially our anaesthetist Dr Sham Kumar and our paediatrician Dr Long Wai Lup. The baby was born at 1:47 am, and Dr Long was on standby at the hospital to perform the follow-up examination and cleaning for the baby in time to ensure that the baby received the best care." He concluded.

2021年3月25日,是UCSI医院的生日。6天后的4月1日,UCSI医院就迎来了这所医院的第一个新生宝宝,新生命的诞生犹如旭日朝阳,也让这所新医院更显得生机勃勃!

负责接生的妇产科专科医生郑建源(Victor Chin)说,这是一个很特别、也很荣幸的经验。我为UCSI医院在开张后的几天内,就能迅速地为当地的居民提供医疗服务感到骄傲。

郑建源医生是一名经验丰富的妇产科医生,2013年至今曾在澳洲和马来西亚多所医院,提供妇产专科服务。

他分享到,产妇是临时决定在UCSI医院分娩的。而当时产妇的血压相当高,而且羊水也只剩下1cm(正常为5cm至25cm)。

"其实当天已经过了宝宝的预产期,已经40周又3天了。于是我判断必须立即为产妇分娩。"

作为一所新医院,产妇和家人都曾犹豫,担心医院和医疗团队的经验和设备。

但郑建源医生的专业分析与建议,让她放心地进入了产房。

"产妇很希望能自然产,身为妇产科医生我也很鼓励自然产,但一切还需视情况来做判断。"

最后,因产妇子宫颈口扩张并不理想,而选择剖腹产。他补充:"身为医生我们唯一的目标就是母子平安、健康,生产方式其实是其次。"

"宝宝出世时,身上都是排泄物,这跟我们之前的诊断一致,宝宝在母腹中大便是导致羊水变少的原因。"

对于医院产房的设备,郑建源说:"看得出UCSI医院是投资重金来设置医疗设备,其专业与先进程度足以媲美很多国内,甚至是澳洲医院的设备。"

"当天有13人加班参与了手术,共9名护士和4名医生,大家都为迎接第一个UCSI医院的新生儿感到兴奋。"

"我也要感谢医疗团队在这次手术上的配搭,尤其是儿科医生龙伟立(Long Wai Lup)和麻醉科的Sham Kumar医生。 宝宝出生时是凌晨1点47分,而龙医生就在医院待命,及时接手为宝宝处理后续的检查及清洁,确保宝宝得到最好的照顾。"
