Accident Victim in Luari Village Who Was Assisted by HRP Team Died

A resident from Loloda district, West Halmahera who suffered a traffic accident on February 13, 2023, and had received assistance from the Haji Robert Peduli (HRP) Public Health (KesMas) team, died on Saturday, February 25, 2023, after being treated for 12 days at Chasan Boesoirie Ternate Hospital.

According to his family, the patient was hit by a drunken motorcyclist while cornering on a road between Luari Village and Mamuya Village, North Halmahera Regency, North Maluku (Malut). “He was immediately taken by the locals to Tobelo Regional Hospital using a pick-up car. Then when I was processing the report to the Police, one of my friends suggested that I immediately contact the HRP Team for further handling assistance,” said the victim’s son-in-law.

The HRP KesMas Malut team, which received information on the incident from the report of the Kuabang HRP Team, immediately traced the whereabouts of the patient who was referred to Chasan Boesoirie Ternate Hospital. The HRP team met the patient at the emergency room of the hospital with the patient’s condition experiencing loss of consciousness, fever, shortness of breath, and having been infused. Furthermore, the team carried out coordination with families and emergency room officers for follow-up treatment.

The Coordinator of the Malut HRP Team, Munir Radjabessy, said that during the treatment at Chasan Boesoirie Ternate Hospital, his team routinely visited to monitor the patient’s progress and accompany the patient’s family. “There were obstacles we had to deal when providing support to this patient, due to limited facilities such as CT Scan which is currently damaged. I intended to take the patient to Tidore Hospital to do a CT Scan there. However, this is risky considering the patient’s condition that does not allow him to be transported,” said Munir.

“We always coordinated with the Doctor team on treating this patient, but we heard that the family decided to bring the patient home. Only minutes after all the medical devices attached to the patient’s body removed, God had another will. The patient was pronounced dead,” he added.

The HRP Team immediately coordinated with the hospital for the process of repatriating the body to their hometown in Bakun Pantai Nolu, Loloda District, West Halmahera Regency, by providing all the needs ranging from coffins and other things. The HRP team also helped arrange the travel route to the funeral home considering the considerable distance with a travel time of ± 12 hours.

The HRP team and Mr. Haji Robert are deeply saddened by the passing of one of these HRP patients.
