Biaya Paket Umroh Promo Murah November Desember

Lamongan, Saco-Indonesia.com – Nyonya Ariyanti (27) 'disandera' usai bersalin. Warga Desa Sumlaran, Kecamatan Sukodadi, Kabupaten Lamongan, Jawa Timur ini dilarang meninggalkan Rumah Sakit dr Soegiri Lamongan kerena tidak mampu membayar biaya bersalin bayi laki-laki sebesar Rp 1,5 juta.

Padahal seharusnya Ariyanti sudah dapat meninggalkan Rumah Sakit terhitung mulai Sabtu (25/1/2014). Namun, karena tidak mampu membayar biaya, Ariyanti bersama Septian Hadi Winoto (27), suami, dan bayi mereka 'disandera' pihak rumah sakit.

Terlebih lagi, saat masuk, mendaftar sebagai pasien umum, bukan pemegang kartu jaminan miskin seperti Jamkesmas, maupun pemegang kartu Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Sosial (BPJS).

Ariyanti masuk Rumah Sakit, Rabu (22/1/2014), sehari setelahnya Ariyanti melahirkan secara normal dan berlanjut menjalani rawat inap di ruang Melati. Sementara kondisi kesehatan si bayi dan ibunya cukup baik dan bisa pulang Sabtu (24/1/2014).

Ternyata, saat suaminya, Septian Hadi Winoto hendak mengurus berbagai keperluan untuk kepulangan anak dan istrinya, tidak bisa diharapkan. Pasalnya, keluarga ini harus menyelesaikan administrasi pembayaran dengan total biaya mencapai Rp 1,5 juta.

Merasa tidak tidak memiliki uang sebanyak itu, Septian Hadi Winoto baru kemudian mengurus kartu BPJS sebagai bukti tidak mampu sekaligus ingin bebas biaya. ”Saya memang baru ngurus BPJS yang kartunya langsung keluar pada hari Sabtu kemarin,” ungkap Septian sembari menunjukkan kartu BPJS bernomor 0001264994842 tertanggal 24 Januari 2014.

Namun kartu BPJS itu terlambat untuk bisa membebaskan biaya kelahiran putra pertamanya. Karena saat kali pertama masuk, ia sebagai pasien umum. Sementara itu, sejumlah bidan piket, sejak Sabtu (24/01/2014) hingga Minggu (26/1) tetap tidak bisa melepas sang pasien.

Intinya, sesuai catatan sejak pendaftaran dan masuk rumah sakit yang tersambung secara online di Rumah Sakit dr Soegiri Lamongan, istri Septian tercatat sebagai pasien umum. Dimana berlaku biaya sesuai ketentuan yang ada di Rumah Sakit berpelat merah ini.

Septian mengakui, saat mendaftar sebagai pasien umum karena tidak mempunyai kartu miskin apa pun. Problem itulah yang akhirnya membelitnya, belum bisa meninggalkan rumah sakit.

Priyono, orangtua Septian yang turut ke Rumah Sakit mengungkapkan, keluarganya sekarang ini tidak mempunyai uang sebanyak itu sesuai administrasi yang tercatat di kasir yakni Rp 1, 5 juta. Sementara saya baru ada sekitar Rp 750.000,” kata Priyono.

Bidan piket, Lilis Yustiowati dikonfirmasi Minggu (26/1/2014) siang mengungkapkan, dalam catatan yang ada di rumah sakit, Ariyanti masuk sebagai pasien umum, bukan pemegang kartu jaminan apa pun. ”Terus gimana? Kalau memang sudah bisa menyelesaikan pembayaran di kasir tentu diperbolehkan pulang,” ujar Lilis.

Lilis mengaku hanya sebagai karyawan dan harus menjalankan semuanya sesuai dengan ketentuan. Beda lagi kalau saat masuk, Ariyanti terdaftar pemegang kartu BPJS, tentu tidak ada masalah. Sedangkan kalaupun akhirnya bisa pulang besok, Senin (27/1) berarti pasien sudah digratiskan perawatannya selama tiga hari, terhitung 24, 25 dan 26 Januari 2014.

"Kami juga tidak berani melepas kalau belum ada tembusan penyelesaian pembayaran dari depan (kasir rumah sakit),” tambah Lilis yang didampingi Bidan Indah.

RS Sandera Bayi, Karena Orangtua Tak Mampu Bayar Biaya Bersalin

Though Robin and Joan Rolfs owned two rare talking dolls manufactured by Thomas Edison’s phonograph company in 1890, they did not dare play the wax cylinder records tucked inside each one.

The Rolfses, longtime collectors of Edison phonographs, knew that if they turned the cranks on the dolls’ backs, the steel phonograph needle might damage or destroy the grooves of the hollow, ring-shaped cylinder. And so for years, the dolls sat side by side inside a display cabinet, bearers of a message from the dawn of sound recording that nobody could hear.

In 1890, Edison’s dolls were a flop; production lasted only six weeks. Children found them difficult to operate and more scary than cuddly. The recordings inside, which featured snippets of nursery rhymes, wore out quickly.

Yet sound historians say the cylinders were the first entertainment records ever made, and the young girls hired to recite the rhymes were the world’s first recording artists.

Year after year, the Rolfses asked experts if there might be a safe way to play the recordings. Then a government laboratory developed a method to play fragile records without touching them.

The technique relies on a microscope to create images of the grooves in exquisite detail. A computer approximates — with great accuracy — the sounds that would have been created by a needle moving through those grooves.

In 2014, the technology was made available for the first time outside the laboratory.

“The fear all along is that we don’t want to damage these records. We don’t want to put a stylus on them,” said Jerry Fabris, the curator of the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, N.J. “Now we have the technology to play them safely.”

Last month, the Historical Park posted online three never-before-heard Edison doll recordings, including the two from the Rolfses’ collection. “There are probably more out there, and we’re hoping people will now get them digitized,” Mr. Fabris said.

The technology, which is known as Irene (Image, Reconstruct, Erase Noise, Etc.), was developed by the particle physicist Carl Haber and the engineer Earl Cornell at Lawrence Berkeley. Irene extracts sound from cylinder and disk records. It can also reconstruct audio from recordings so badly damaged they were deemed unplayable.

“We are now hearing sounds from history that I did not expect to hear in my lifetime,” Mr. Fabris said.

The Rolfses said they were not sure what to expect in August when they carefully packed their two Edison doll cylinders, still attached to their motors, and drove from their home in Hortonville, Wis., to the National Document Conservation Center in Andover, Mass. The center had recently acquired Irene technology.

Audio

Cylinders carry sound in a spiral groove cut by a phonograph recording needle that vibrates up and down, creating a surface made of tiny hills and valleys. In the Irene set-up, a microscope perched above the shaft takes thousands of high-resolution images of small sections of the grooves.

Stitched together, the images provide a topographic map of the cylinder’s surface, charting changes in depth as small as one five-hundredth the thickness of a human hair. Pitch, volume and timbre are all encoded in the hills and valleys and the speed at which the record is played.

At the conservation center, the preservation specialist Mason Vander Lugt attached one of the cylinders to the end of a rotating shaft. Huddled around a computer screen, the Rolfses first saw the wiggly waveform generated by Irene. Then came the digital audio. The words were at first indistinct, but as Mr. Lugt filtered out more of the noise, the rhyme became clearer.

“That was the Eureka moment,” Mr. Rolfs said.

In 1890, a girl in Edison’s laboratory had recited:

There was a little girl,

And she had a little curl

Audio

Right in the middle of her forehead.

When she was good,

She was very, very good.

But when she was bad, she was horrid.

Recently, the conservation center turned up another surprise.

In 2010, the Woody Guthrie Foundation received 18 oversize phonograph disks from an anonymous donor. No one knew if any of the dirt-stained recordings featured Guthrie, but Tiffany Colannino, then the foundation’s archivist, had stored them unplayed until she heard about Irene.

Last fall, the center extracted audio from one of the records, labeled “Jam Session 9” and emailed the digital file to Ms. Colannino.

“I was just sitting in my dining room, and the next thing I know, I’m hearing Woody,” she said. In between solo performances of “Ladies Auxiliary,” “Jesus Christ,” and “Dead or Alive,” Guthrie tells jokes, offers some back story, and makes the audience laugh. “It is quintessential Guthrie,” Ms. Colannino said.

The Rolfses’ dolls are back in the display cabinet in Wisconsin. But with audio stored on several computers, they now have a permanent voice.
