Andi Muhammad Sofyan


Nowadays, the implementation of health care is often encountered a conflict between health personnel and recipients of health services or patient. Actually, these cases have happened for a long time, but mostly protracted because of different views by health personnel or workers. The results show that the absence of national service standards causes each hospital creates each procedure according to a condition. It causes different standard operating procedures in each hospital. If reviewed properly that every hospital with the same type should have the same standard operating procedures, so that people who come to visit for treatment no longer assume different types of hospitals of the same type. Likewise, if there is an incident of malpractice in a hospital of the same type, then the law enforcement officers will easily to examine by simply checking the service standards set by the government by looking the type of hospital. In this context, the Provincial Government of South Sulawesi is consistent and truly carries out the supervisory function of health workers, plans carefully the infrastructure of hospitals, opens the admission of education for doctors or other health workers so that the fulfillment of health personnel can be realized and there are no doctors or other health personnel leave the assignment at duty hours, especially those with the status of civil apparatus, and give the opportunity to the region citizen to take education and returning to their regions to serve so that the people in the area who will seek treatment are also touched by the competent personnel in their fields.
