Hospital Group Asks Companies w/ Nursing Graduates To Lend Them To Hospitals

HOSPITAL GROUP – Philippine Hospital Association (PHA) appeals to firms with nursing graduates doing non-nursing job to lend them to hospitals.

The Philippines is still battling against COVID-19. The total cases recorded in the country has already went beyond the 1-million mark and there are still at least 4,000 new cases logged daily.

The emergence of new variants of COVID-19 called for a tougher fight against the pandemic. It has been more than a year now since the pandemic started and the recent spike in the cases has caused hospitals again to fill up.

The vaccination program is ongoing in the Philippines. The top priorities are the doctors, nurses, and the healthcare workers who are the frontliners in the fight against the pandemic.

The healthcare system needs a huge support in the tough battle against the COVID-19 pandemic most especially that it is ongoing for more than a year now. Recently, a hospital group made a call for companies and offices with nursing graduate staff.

Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the Philippine Hospital Association (PHA) is asking for “reinforcing of government agencies” with nursing graduate staff doing non-nursing jobs to lend them to hospitals. PHA President Dr. Jaime Almora made the appeal “before the last defenses of this war, the hospitals, will be totally overrun”.

The said PHA appeal took place during the Senate Committee on Economic Affairs. According to Almora, there are around 9,000 nursing graduates who supposedly moved to the Philippine National Police (PNP) and did non-nursing jobs.

Based on the report, the PHA President also expressed that the health facilities in Metro Manila and the nearby facilities got to their “breaking point” because of the increasing cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines.

Almora stressed that the capabilities of the COVID centers is decreasing as they are doing their best for more than a year now regardless of the many challenges.
