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.

From sea to shining sea, or at least from one side of the Hudson to the other, politicians you have barely heard of are being accused of wrongdoing. There were so many court proceedings involving public officials on Monday that it was hard to keep up.
In Newark, two underlings of Gov. Chris Christie were arraigned on charges that they were in on the truly deranged plot to block traffic leading onto the George Washington Bridge.
Ten miles away, in Lower Manhattan, Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on accusations of far more conventional political larceny, involving a job with a sewer company for the son and commissions on title insurance and bond work.
The younger man managed to receive a 150 percent pay increase from the sewer company even though, as he said on tape, he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff,” according to a criminal complaint the United States attorney’s office filed.
The success of Adam Skelos, 32, was attributed by prosecutors to his father’s influence as the leader of the Senate and as a potentate among state Republicans. The indictment can also be read as one of those unfailingly sad tales of a father who cannot stop indulging a grown son. The senator himself is not alleged to have profited from the schemes, except by being relieved of the burden of underwriting Adam.
The bridge traffic caper is its own species of crazy; what distinguishes the charges against the two Skeloses is the apparent absence of a survival instinct. It is one thing not to know anything about water or that stuff. More remarkable, if true, is the fact that the sewer machinations continued even after the former New York Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, was charged in January with taking bribes disguised as fees.
It was by then common gossip in political and news media circles that Senator Skelos, a Republican, the counterpart in the Senate to Mr. Silver, a Democrat, in the Assembly, could be next in line for the criminal dock. “Stay tuned,” the United States attorney, Preet Bharara said, leaving not much to the imagination.
Even though the cat had been unmistakably belled, Skelos father and son continued to talk about how to advance the interests of the sewer company, though the son did begin to use a burner cellphone, the kind people pay for in cash, with no traceable contracts.
That was indeed prudent, as prosecutors had been wiretapping the cellphones of both men. But it would seem that the burner was of limited value, because by then the prosecutors had managed to secure the help of a business executive who agreed to record calls with the Skeloses. It would further seem that the business executive was more attentive to the perils of pending investigations than the politician.
Through the end of the New York State budget negotiations in March, the hopes of the younger Skelos rested on his father’s ability to devise legislation that would benefit the sewer company. That did not pan out. But Senator Skelos did boast that he had haggled with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in a successful effort to raise a $150 million allocation for Long Island to $550 million, for what the budget called “transformative economic development projects.” It included money for the kind of work done by the sewer company.
The lawyer for Adam Skelos said he was not guilty and would win in court. Senator Skelos issued a ringing declaration that he was unequivocally innocent.
THIS was also the approach taken in New Jersey by Bill Baroni, a man of great presence and eloquence who stopped outside the federal courthouse to note that he had taken risks as a Republican by bucking his party to support paid family leave, medical marijuana and marriage equality. “I would never risk my career, my job, my reputation for something like this,” Mr. Baroni said. “I am an innocent man.”
The lawyer for his co-defendant, Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, a Republican, said that she would strongly rebut the charges.
Perhaps they had nothing to do with the lane closings. But neither Mr. Baroni nor Ms. Kelly addressed the question of why they did not return repeated calls from the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., begging them to stop the traffic tie-ups, over three days.
That silence was a low moment. But perhaps New York hit bottom faster. Senator Skelos, the prosecutors charged, arranged to meet Long Island politicians at the wake of Wenjian Liu, a New York City police officer shot dead in December, to press for payments to the company employing his son.
Sometimes it seems as though for some people, the only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself. Finding Scandal in New York and New Jersey, but No Shame
