Jakarta, UIN News Online – UIN Jakarta is determined to make Hajj Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta as sharia-based hospital. This is done so that the treatment of patients can be in accordance with sharia values with a gender perspective.

This was said by the former acting director of Hajj Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta Andi Wahyuningsih Attas to UIN News Online after handover ceremony between the outgoing acting director Andi Wahyuningsih Attas to incoming acting director Heri Hendarto on Monday (01/10/2022) held at Haji Hospital Building, UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, Pondok Gede, East Jakarta.

According to Andi, the Hajj Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta has now received a positive response from the public. Therefore, in the near future, the Hajj Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta will become a sharia-certified hospital from the National Sharia Council (DSN) of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI).

“Hopefully, this January or next February, the Haji Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta will be sharia-certified,” said Andi.

She also stated that the Hajj Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta would later become the first shari certified government-owned hospital.

The definition of a sharia hospital, according to Andi, is that every doctor or nurse who treats patients must be based on gender. Except for certain actions that can be carried out by men or women, such as in registration services.

“But if there are certain sensitive measures, such as the installation of a pacemaker or insertion of a urine catheter, it must be done according to gender,” she added.

This means that female patients must be treated by female doctors or nurses and male patients must also be treated by male medical personnel. This is different from what happened in other hospitals.

In general hospitals, patient care may not be carried out according to gender, including in Islamic hospitals that have not been sharia-certified. But if it is sharia-certified, then the patient’s handling must be in accordance with the Sharia and with a gender perspective.

“I am optimistic that the Hajj Hospital of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta will become a more Islamic hospital. This is supported by competent human resources, both doctors, nurses and administrative staff,” she said.

For information, Andi Wahyuningsih Attas was appointed Acting Director of Haji UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta on May 2020. She was appointed as acting director in conjunction with the change of management from the Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affairs to UIN Jakarta. (ns/usa)
