Admitted to hospital for the first time 19.05.2014

I felt cold during midnight and couldn't sleep for the whole night on 16.05.2014. I went clinic for check up and got my medical leave on that day. During day time, the fever was gone. I took some medicine pills given by doctor to cure my running nose and fever.

I had bad sore throat on weekend nights and went toilet few times daily.

On 19.05.2014 midnight, I felt cold again and decided to apply medical leave on the day after I went to different clinic. While waiting in the clinic, I saw my both hands started showing up red spots. I told doctor about my health problem, he suggested me to do blood test for dengue. After clinic received blood test result from BP Diagnostic Centre, they called me up and informed that my dengue test is positive, requested me to admit to any hospital on the same day. At night, my aunt drove me to KPJ Damansara Specialist hospital after I told her that I planned to drive to Pantai Hospital myself. She fetched me at 8.35pm near my place. After I reached hospital, I told the medical assistants at emergency department about my dengue case. I need to go through their normal procedure to check with a doctor before to make any decision. Thus I waited to consult a doctor. Doctor suggested 2 options for me, whether to admit hospital or drink a lot of water at home and came to hospital to do blood test the next day. 

I told him that I had packed my own stuffs and decided to admit to hospital. Therefore, he asked me to wait outside and register myself. After I had done admission registration and made deposit payment for RM3500, I waited together with my aunt & cousin sister at the lobby. I was called by the nurse to enter one of the Superior Single ward about 11.20pm.

I discharged from the hospital on 22.05.2014. Total cost of my hospital stay was RM2886.15. I requested a friend who came to visit me to send me home.
