Health Workers in General Santos City Allegedly Urged to Wear Diapers During Duty? Truth Revealed
The reports regarding health workers of a hospital in General Santos City being instructed to wear diapers during duty gone viral.
Several health workers in General Santos City went viral after allegedly ordered to use diapers during their shift at the hospital. The hospital released an official statement to clarify and address the issue.
Dr. Jorge P. Royeca Hospital chief Dr. Ryan Aplicador denied the allegations and explained that the reports were just rumors and speculations with no legal basis. He said that it was just a joke and not an order.
“Actually, narinig ko yun noon dati parang joke yun no na nag-diaper sila, pag-naiihi sila ayaw na nilang lumabas but it was not an instruction na mag-diaper kayo para magtipid ng PPE,” Aplicador said.
The hospital chief said that the institution has instructed the medical frontliners to replace the used Personal Protective Equipment every four to six hours. Health employees should also take a break after a couple of hours of work.
“We are only allowed to wear PPE for maximum of four hours yun ang advise naming sa kanila, actually six hours ang sabi but on the fourth hour kung talagang mahaba they to go out, they have to rest, they have to eat, hindi po totoo na hindi na sila lalabas para makatipid ng PPE,” the hospital chief said.
The report only shows that the health workers and frontliners are experiencing hardships and difficulties on their job just to help our fellow countrymen suffering from illnesses amid the coronavirus pandemic.
