“Statement of the All UP Academic Employees Union-Manila On the Incident Involving Ramon Tulfo and the Emergency Room Staff of the Philippine General Hospital
The All UP Academic Employees Union-Manila Chapter, representing the faculty and the research, extension, and professional staff (REPS) of the University of the Philippines in Manila, including the resident physicians and consultants of the Philippine General Hospital, strongly condemns the abusive and atrocious behavior exhibited by Mr. Ramon Tulfo at the PGH Emergency Room yesterday, August 16.
Mr. Tulfo, together with his entourage, brought a patient to the PGH ER, disregarded the triage, and bullied and verbally abused the ER staff under the pretext of expediting service to his patient. His crew also videotaped the entire incident and uploaded this video on social media.
The actions of Mr. Tulfo are not only grossly irresponsible but also patently endanger the lives of other patients under the care of the PGH ER staff.
Furthermore, Mr. Tulfo’s video clearly violates the fundamental rights of both the PGH personnel and the patients.
The union also unequivocally condemns attempts at doctor shaming instigated by Mr. Tulfo through various platforms on social media.
The union urges the PGH Administration, as well as the UP Manila leadership, to take direct and formal action against Mr. Tulfo regarding the matter. These two institutions have the legal and moral mandate to protect those under the purview of their responsibility, be they health personnel, students, or patients.
The union enjoins the PGH and UP Manila administrations to also extend assistance to the patient and her family. As a minor, the patient has been subjected to undue duress brought about by Mr. Tulfo’s video and she and her family may require further help in the future.
We continue to support all of the health personnel, staff, and students working in PGH, as they remain steadfast in their unwavering service to the poor despite the very far-from-ideal working conditions afforded by the Philippine healthcare system.
Lastly, we enjoin the Filipino people to continue working with their healthcare providers to attain the services they require, and to remain vigilant against crass opportunists who will do everything to deflect accountability from their own misdeeds.”
