Jayapura, Jubi – Public Hospital Dok II Jayapura said that it wasl facing a shortage of hemodialysis fluid early last month due to budget constraints.

“Each week, approximately 80 patients are on dialysis. If it is not resolved immediately, it will be fatal. This year dialysis fluid budget was only Rp 900 million, while the needs reached Rp 4.8 billion,” director of Hospital Dok II Jayapura, Yerry Msen said on Friday (24/10).

Hospital Management must figure out a way so it won’t impact services for patients. As a result, the allocation of Papua Health Card funds (KPS) and BPJS was used to cover it.
“However, the service is not stopped. Patients who are able to pay, will get charged and those who can’t will not get charged. We do not defend ourselves, but we’re improving our management. The progress is pretty good,” he said.

Msen has proposed additional budget funds in 2015 in order to address a number of these problems, still he did not mention how much the proposed budget.
“For example, funds for pharma in one year could reach Rp. 20 billion, and for supplying oxygen annually approximately Rp. 4 to 6 billion. While in the previous budget only Rp. 600 million. Of course it is not sufficient. We must find ways to optimize the limited amount of funds. Regardless if the financial support is lame, will not the maximum,” he said.
