Breaking News: DOH ordered Abra Provincial Hospital downgraded to level 1 classification

The New APH: Stunning from the outside but dark and isolated in the inside.

The New APH: Stunning from the outside but dark and isolated in the inside.

This just in.

The controversial new Abra Provincial Hospital (APH) can’t seem to shake the bad omen. After so many issues on the P200 Million Hospital, here comes another one.

According to our sources, The Department of Health through it’s implementing agency PhilHealth has ordered the downgrade of APH status from Level 2 to Level 1.

Under the new DOH reclassification order, Level-1 hospitals should have the following facilities — surgery room; isolation, surgical and maternity facilities; dental clinics; secondary clinical laboratory; blood station; first level X-ray; and a pharmacy.

Level-2 hospitals require additional departmentalized clinical services, a respiratory unit, high pregnancy risk unit, second level X-ray with mobile unit, while Level-3 hospitals should have DOH-accredited teaching and training on four major clinical services, ambulatory surgical and dialysis clinics, and a blood bank.

What are the implications of this? According to our sources:

1. Patients can no longer use their PhilHealth card for major illnesses.

2. APH can is no longer qualified to handle major cases.In other words, the hospital is now reduced to a mere district hospital.

Why did it come to this point?

1. The hospital was not built based on strict building specifications.
2. After 6 months of full operations, patients have complaint about defective facilities such as licking roofs and flooding of bathrooms. Poorly lit soroundings.
3. Lack fo equipment and supplies. The facility lacks medicines and even essential supplies like gauze, plasters and gloves are not enough. The dark room for the x-ray is still at the the old APH.
4. APH waste water is now allegely polluting the Abra River.

According to our source hospital administrators are keeping silent about this issue. But patients are now aware of this situation and are starting to be wary.

Only Christian Hospital and Seares Hospital are the remaining level 2 Hospitals.

So what now?

  2. could our beloved governor explain this mess? since every dick tom and harry knows that his beloved manugang is the contractor,can they explain what happened to be the SUPPOSED state of the art hospital,which pales in comparison to prices spent in other hospitals?

      • eric i know who you are driving at hehehe.
        i wrote about this issue in another thread before it was posted in a.com.
        it is quite a shame that a very expensive hospital is only a level one hospital like a lying in clinic or a big rural health unit.
        certainly it is no longer the fault of the contractor but the administration of the hospital who is at fault. the problem here is that there is no really a person who runs the hospital. with a bed capacity of more than a hundred, it should have a director to run it. the work of the provincial health officer is so different from the work of the hospital director. the past few months this role of being provincial health officer and hospital director was in the handa of dr gaza but now dra berona is back as provincial health officer but i do not know if she too is in charge of the hospital.
        the provincial health officers work is more of public health and not the clinics or hospital.
        the hospital should be run by a qualified medical doctor with hospital administration as specialty or masteral or other allied masterals. for all i know, dra enerva is the chief of clinics of the hospital being one of the provincial health officer 1.
        what i am proposing is that the governor and the sangguniang panlalawigan create a position of medical director, whose only responsibility is the day to day operation of the hospital. and add to that, that the governor will give him or her the free hand and not meddle with him or her. this to my point will ensure that the hospital will be run well and not downgraded.
        in fairness the hospital has the basic requirements of being level two but again short. the APH has the four disciplines which is surgery, obstetrics, pediatrics and medicine but then again lack the manpower. there is no problem with medicine as the dept has a diplomate in internal medicine as the head so with obstetrics which has a diplomate in ob-gyn as head, so do i think with surgery but pediatrics does not have a diplomate holder among its ranks.
        the respiratory unit is not a problem as that there is a ventilator and the head of medicine is a pulmonologist. the hospital has a blood bank, a mobile x-ray but as the report said that really the hospital lack in supplies and medicines.

        • addendum
          if only the administration of the hospital including the governor see to it that the budgeted money for the purchase of medicines and supplies go to where they are intended for there would not be a problem. this should include not taking SOPs fot the purchases which to reach about 50% for their pockets.
          add to the annual budget for supplies and medicines are the proceeds of philhealth reimbursements which also amounts to millions of pesos which could also be used to purchase supplies and medicines but where are these funds going?
          another source of income supposed to be for the hospital is the income from the admission in the pay wards. where do these monies go?
          the difference between APH with petronilo seares hospital and bangued christian hospital is that the two private hospital has medical directors who CARE ABOUT THEIR HOSPITAL because they love their hospital because they own it. this should also be the attitude of the governor and the administration towards the APH and not divest the hospital of its funds and get downgraded. the governor and the hospital administration owe it to the people that they should manage the hospital well because it is the people who are paying their salaries and even paying the loan in building the hospital with their taxes.

    • Mario bang and pagalsem your comments should be taken by our good governor as constructive criticisms. He should try listening netizens sentiment as world leaders do, reorganize his people and instill among themselves the word accountability not unless he wants to be the subject of criminal complaints after he steps down on 2016

  5. This hospital just broke the world record of the most expensive clinic.

    On another note, how can the operations of aph be successful if the person in power is Ruby Bersamin? She’s not a doctor or even have any experience in the medical field. She roams around aph barking orders as if she personally own the place.

    There goes your legacy Takit. It’s down the drain.

    • The downgrade of the APH from level 2 to levell 1 speaks for itself. No amount of explanation and finger pointing can resolve this nagging problem. I and scores of other netizens have complained about this mess in the past. All we got in return were insults and hogwash. Is this the kind of legacy the good governor wants to leave to his people? “How many times can a man turn his head, pretending he just doesn’t see?” Well, no one is so blind as those who refuse to see.
      I join the sustained clamor of our people to end the deeply entrenched culture of graft, corruption and patronage in our political system. We demand that the governor ensure transparency and accountability in the investigation of all personalities involved in this mess. We insist that appropriate cases be filed and prosecuted with dispatch against all individuals whether government or private involved in this plunder of public funds. We shall remain vigilant until the whole truth behind this mess is revealed. Let the chips fall where they must. We owe this to our aggrieved and victimized people.
      May I express gratitude in behalf of our people to Mario Bang who continues to courageously inform us of the events happening on the ground. Likewise, I express gratitide in behalf of all Abrenos to Eric Bringas for keeping us informed about the issues that affect our very lives. May both your tribes increase.

  11. When Governor Amado Espino decided to make the Pangasinan Provincial hosp[ital as his best legacy, he sees to it that the services of the hospital satisfies the public, from structural development of the hospital to the facilities as well as doctors and nurses manning the medical services. The hospital was recently accredited by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for operating quality management. Governor Takit also made mentioned in his public speeches that the Abra Provincial Hospital will be his legacy before stepping down from power. However, the APH project from its conception to date hounded the Governor because of the stinks that it produces literally and figuratively. The APH being downgraded from Level 2 to Level 1status was enormously unacceptable. I am just wondering how such a man who stayed long in the USA seems unlearned to standards and quality management. How long then will the Abrenians dwells captive from leaders that are called professionals but unlearned?

      • I respect your opinion TARIPNONG and I will defend your right to express it. I’m not perfect. I commit mistakes too but I can stand correction. I admit mistakes whenever I commit them and I accept criticism fair and foul whenever I realize I am at fault. That is the only way we can learn. There lies the difference. There is this old adage that says,”If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”. People who display canine loyalty to the governor say that he is being persecuted. If that were true, the governor must love being persecuted because he keeps on running term after term after term.
        You keep on insisting that we are green with envy because we were losers in the election. Gasgas na palusot na yan. If that had any iota of truth in it, am I to believe then that the personnel of the Department of Health and PhilHealth were also losers in the past elections? It was they who ordered the downgrade from level 2 to level 1 of the APH. It was but a confirmation of the allegations of our people about the mess created by no less than governor and his minions. To make matters worse, it is the people who will have to pay through their nose, the gargantuan debt acquired to construct the substandard hospital.
        I for one would like to help the governor succeed because like you I am also a stakeholder. But how do you help someone who is in a perpetual state of denial? It is far too easy to blame past administrations for the sad lot of our people. It is so difficult to admit one’s mistake and own up to it like a real man. For the longest time our people have noticed this can of worms but the provincial government did everything to hide it by continuously denying it and by attacking the people who complain about it. Now that it has been uncovered, the powerful stench of corruption can no longer be denied. It is time to hold all those responsible for this mess accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Our people have suffered enough.
        “To whom much is given, much will be required and to whom more is given, much more will be required.”

Taripnong and even his boss in authority had forgotten that the most basic reason for freedom of expresssion is to express honest criticism against officials even in a ways of vulgar and unkind and they are living under a hostile and just accusation while in public office. A clear conscience and innocence can olny set them free. This is democracy there is check and balance. imagine taripnong if the senate are rubber stamp of a bad president. Imagine taripnong if no one as a group and individual went to supreme court to file petition to stop a law for implementation na mgpapahirap sa sambayanang filipino like the power hike in mm. Even a good leaders tend to be abusive kung wala kokontra iho and takit is not even a good leader. Just imagine how the governance of takit if wala COA, ombudsman Dilg, lunas bernoses valeras s3nate investigation on graft and corruption leila delima bishop jaucian iglesia chr a.com. imagine what would be our leaders with out those mentioned and you taripnong you are INSISTING.

    • taripnong, you really are big fan of takit. we are helping your boss by reminding him that he is not doing what he is supposed to do and that is TO SERVE THE PEOPLE AND SERVE THEM RIGHT.
      as manong pedro abreno said, the downgrading of the APH from level 2 to level one speaks for itself. this event also proved our claims eversince that the construction of the hospital is marred with graft. we have been very vocal about this but the likes of you, who are rah rah boys of takit attack us with impunity instead of whispering to your boss that we are watching and he should do what is right. taripnong, you are doing a disservice to your boss because you are making him blind by your assurance that you are always in his back inspite of the clamor of more people that takit or his minions are not doing good anymore.
      we the citizens specially our poor provincemates who suffer as a consequence of this downgrading of the hospital. not only the patients who will bear the ill effect of the downgrading of the hospital, even our doctors will suffer from this because their professional fees to be reimbursed by philhealth will also go down because the computation of the relative value unit or RVU is different for levels 2 and one. level one will have a lower RVU. also this will affect the income of the hospital because philhealth will pay less with level one hospitals.
      so instead of attacking us taripnong, tell your boss to act immediately on this matter before all goes down the drain. tell him to appoint somebody who has management skills, conscience and has the leadership to improve the sorry state of the APH. and remind your boss that his wife should stay away from the hospital because she has no expertise in that matter. she will just make things worse by being there. your boss’s wife is not a doctor so she has no business in that hospital. also tell your boss to stop appointing his relatives into the vital positions in the hospital so as not to meddle with the affairs of the hospital.
      there are qualified people in abra who could help takit make a reversal of the philhealth and DOH ruling but is not within his circle. they could help for as long as takit will not dip his hands on the affairs of the hospital

        • probinsial sekretaryo, you are like your boss, you know nothing. do you know of the word or phrase FEASIBILITY STUDY? with your post, it seems you dont know it like your boss.
          before spending 400 million on a hospital, a manager should know what the people need, what the doctors need, what will take income, what will loss and what the heck will be.
          takit made the hospital for only one purpose, TO MAKE MONEY. as you claim sekretaryo, we should be thankful, that takit made the hospital, is a big SHIT, the more with your statement that”ti kayatyo metten ket completo a dagusen, aguray tay koma ta amaden na pay kadagiti dodoktor no anya pay ti masapol ta ospital” this statement only show your blind faith to your governor and your ignorance. sorry for the word but you are IGNORANT.
          why do i call you ignorant? first, you seem not to know government procedures. second, you dont know what you are saying. and third, i feel you are really just a rah rah boy of takit. let me elucidate you mr PROBINSIAL SEKRETARYO.
          before building or implementing any project in government , one has to have a feasibility study to back up the project . this means, why are you proposing the project? what is the purpose of the project? who will benefit from the project? how many will benefit from the project? how will you implement the project? how much is the project and many more.
          Spending millions of money in building a very big hospital is one thing but you telling me that the governor, your boss will still have to ask the doctors what they need after building the hospital is inane. and you SEKRETARYO is as inane as your boss takit.before you build the hospital and making a big loan, should have foreseen what you wanted to do.
          di na sana kita papatulan apo sekretaryo but your ignorance makes me even bolder. you must be educated first because you are one of the lips that bite the ear of takit. we must correct your ignorance first before we correct your boss’s incognizance..

    • my friend pagalsem, thank you for your complement that me and manong pedro abreno as masirib. to tell you quite frankly, i am not that. i also had my failures, but i did learn from those failures. and that is the foundation of what i am now. i came from down under the strata of society but now near the upper stratum of what we call society but i had to work my butt to get there.
      i know how it is to be poor. i come from a middle class family that survived with our meager resources. I and my siblings are now all professionals, me being the poorest.
      i was tempted to leave our province and the country for greener pastures but i opted to stay. i was chided even by my parents because of my decision but i had to make a difference.
      i am satisfied with what i have but seeing our people in despair makes my heart bleed. i have been in public service for 20 years and deep in my heart i know that i did my best and had helped our people with utmost dedication and without reservation but i could only do so much
      we helped takit become governor. i now regret that. we wished that without gov vicsyd, abra would be better, but to our dismay, it became worse specially with regard to our health programs. APH was at its best during the time of vicsyd with maam ching and maam vicky taking charge of the hospital. i can attest to that. That is why our group never wanted a new hospital but only wanted to rehabilitate the old APH because we foresaw that it is not a new hospital that will alleviate our health needs but all we had to do is to rehabilitate the hospital and equip it and make sure that we have supplies and medicines for our people. For the whole 20 years that i have spent in public service, the APH was and has always been a level 2 hospital but now that takit has made a very big hospital with a very big loan that it has been downgraded to a level one facility or hospital.

    • Thank you very much PROBINSIAL SEKRETARYO for admitting that the construction of the new APH was fraught with anomalies. May I refresh your memory by citing to you Article XI Section 1 of the constitution, “Public office is a public trust. Public officers must, AT ALL TIMES, be accountable to the people, serve them with UTMOST RESPONSIBILITY, INTEGRITY, LOYALTY and EFFICIENCY; act with patriotism and justice and lead MODEST LIVES”. Simply stated, the governor and all those responsible for this mess must be held accountable.I am very sorry but the acts of the governor do not speak well of his character and his ability to manage scarce resources. May I remind you, Sir, that long after the governor has finished his last term, the people of Abra will still be saddled by the loan obtained in their name.
      We all want a better life for our people. It is in this regard that we must see to it that justice is done. A petty thief steals something worth a few hundred pesos and he is jailed for six years. DURA LEX SED LEX ( the law may be harsh but it is the law). While a person who stole a paltry sum is jailed, government officials and their ilk who steal millions of pesos end up as political leaders with the word “honorable” attached to their names. They wallow in luxury while the great masses of our people wallow in abject poverty. They spend money like it were going out of style. They have not ended in jail where they truly and deservedly belong. But God works in wondrous ways. Now that this mess has been uncovered, let the law be really harsh this time.
      If the DOH and Philhealth had not downgraded the APH from level 2 to level 1, do you honestly believe any positive change will be made? You spent hundreds of millions of pesos and the result is a downgrade? I am very sorry but what I see is an inept and mediocre leadership. The position of governor requires competence, integrity and vision. The people of Abra do not need someone who is still learning the ropes of governance well into his seventh year in office.
      Government officials must learn to temper their greed. They may think they can bring their ill-gotten wealth with them when they die, but Murphy’s Law says, “If something can go wrong, it probably will”. JUSTICE will catch up with them sooner than later.

    • With all due respect Bartek Tuleng, this is not tweeter. If you just read what they wrote thoroughly and digest it, you will find reason and wisdom in them. Their comments and insights were sometimes the reason i patiently scroll down the comments section aside from occasional comedic comments and hot gossips. They maybe sometimes off the main topic but as long as it concerns abra in general, then theres nothing wrong about it. The site is abrenian.com, may i remind you. There are a lot of priests/pastors with sleeping pills sermon, i consider them not.
      Let me bore you with a nobela.
      I once applied for a position in the old APH, i am more than qualified, but i do lack the biggest requirement of them all, an endorsement. Not that i dont have one, i do. It was signed by somebody with the title after his name, an MD and a PHD. But guess what, they needed one more important paper than i have, a paper signed by someone witha title before his name, HON. GOV. Not that i cant get it, i can, but coming from a respectable private hospital who recognize you with what you know and not who you know, i cannot stomach to go and ask people who will see it as a very big favor that will forever entail blind loyalty.
      I am far away now and dying of envy. The recent downgrade of APH makes me envious even more. I can only wish that the sevices we are offering our patients would also be received by even the poorest abrenian. But how can it be, if instead of proggress is regress. Maybe someday, but until now, i can only wait, vote intelligently and salivate.

You are right gising na ako, ruby is the one seeing and dipping her hands into this budget. This excludes the proceeds from philhealth which could also be used to buy spllies and meds.

    • You can unite behind Takit and his visions, but without great leadership and his visions are only for his self serving interest as opposed to the betterment of the province, we Abrenios are on the opposing side. Being a public servant, he should always remember that he is not the people’s master and he need to restore the meaning of the word “duty”. He owe it to the people of Abra who voted for him. But, he cannot govern. Let alone, serve the people of Abra. Takit is the biggest corrupt politician, it invites every politician in Abra to become more corrupt. I can respect a man only if he doesn’t always look out for himself and his cronies. As one Japanese proverb said, “serve your neighbors as you would be served yourself”.

    • With all due respect, sir, your post reveals what is so wrong with the government we have in Abra. “Rigat na ket kayat tay met amin nga mangan ngem awan met mayat nga agloto” – What is there to cook, sir? The taxes paid by Abrenos that have been plundered have taken food out of the table of the great masses of our people. “Taol kay met la taolen nga kasla aso kada ganso nga adda bassit makita na ganakgak manen ditoy a.com a ket awan”.- Thank you, sir, for comparing us with dogs because I clearly see that this government is really treating us like dogs. Are hundreds of millions of pesos in borrowed money a minor concern to you, sir? Does the provincial leadership need to consult with doctors to know that medicines and hospital supplies are imperatives in the operation of the APH? “Datayo tay makasapul tay tulong isu nga agpakombaba tay amin koma a nga apan makisarita ken umasideg ken Takit satay to damagen….” – Every time he campaigns, the governor promises to help the people. He promises to serve the people. Now that he is in power, we must in all humility go to him for help. Sir, what we need is action on the humongous mess that is APH. If anybody needs to show humility, it is the good governor, sir. He must have the humility to own up to his mistakes. You and others like you who display canine devotion to the governor always insist that he is not to blame, that he could have stolen funds used to construct the substandard APH but he did not. But you also admit that the construction of the APH was fraught with anomalies. If indeed the governor did nothing wrong, then he should go after the people responsible for the anomalies, hammer and thongs. “Awan met ti naka adal len ti napakumbaba nga sarita ni Apo Diosen…ta BOSS kaymet aminen…” Look who’s talking, sir. Kung ang nakararami na mamamayan ng Abra na maralita ay sinasabi mo na BOSS, bakit napakarami ang nagugutom at naghihirap sa ating lalawigan? Bakit napakarami ang namamatay na lamang dahil walang gamot sa APH? Bakit may mga maysakit at namatay sa APH na walang pangbayad dahil sa kahirapan na hindi pinayagan makalabas? Sa thread na ito mababasa mo ang hinaing ng mga kapwa nating Abreno na hindi maganda and naging karanasan sa APH. Kung kami ang mga BOSS, bakit ang mga opisyal ng pamahalaan sa Abra ang napaliligiran ng napakaraming armado na bodyguards? Kung kami ang BOSS, bakit ang mga opisyal ng lalawigan na ito ang nagsisiyaman at nagpapasasa habang kami naman ang namamatay sa gutom at hirap? Gumising ka na, sir. Imulat mo ang iyong mga mata para makita mo ang buong katotohanan. Mahirap magbulagbulagan, baka tuluyan kang mabulag.

    Have we ever thought who has given the birth to this never ending problem? Its us, we the people. And we are the ones who have voted these corrupt politicians and allow them to spend our money for their luxuries and personal savings instead of being used to develop to provide the basic needs for our people. It is our ultimate loss and our ultimate responsibility, so we have to pay the prize.

    Would we have said NO to vote buying and have never sold our votes during election, then this day would not have come in to our life. Today, we have not evolve. Now, every election is atrophying that it will be impossible to get rid of corruption in our province and the entire Philippines.

We are talking here of clean and honest people. Maybe you got the discussion wrong, you may have understood that we need corrupt people to leads us hehehe.
      back to the issue of the NEW APH, I heard dr godofredo gaza talking on dzpa about the downgrading of the hospital from level 2 to level 1, and in which he said that the aph is now considered as a new hospital because it is now situated in another site and as such, in the application of accreditation from DOH, the hospital will be considered as level one because it is new and has to start from the bottom rank. What? Dr gaza is making fools out of us, his explanation is a big alibi. The hospital will apply for accreditation from DOH not based on whether it is new or not but because ofbwhat the hospital is capable of. of course APH applied for level 2 accreditation but after the assessment by the accreditation team from DOH AND PHILHEALTH the hospital cannot qualify because of some deficiencies. Do you mean to say that when NOTRDAME hospital in baguio city applied for accreditation, it applied for level one category because it wasnew? No! It applied as level two and was given a level 2 accreditation.
      I dont know if dr gaza is talking in behalf of the province or in behalf of DOH.. dr gaza should have the delicadeza to shut his mouth regarding this matter because when the hospital was being built and dopenned, he was the trusted aid of takit he being OIC PHO. This means he is among the team that put up this hospital now being questioned. Now he is back at DOH as its provincial team leader, and it seems that he is defending himself and takit of the accusation of graft. Take my word for it, he explanation of dr gaza is false and a bizzare alibi, He is trying to save his own skin. Why dont he just say that indeed the hospital lack certain requirements that is why it is only categorized as level one.
      but dr gaza of course would not say that because with the amount of money spent in that hospital, why should there be deficiencies.

Your guest is as good as mine.
        Excuse me, could you tell me how to get to the new APH? I’m suppose to be giving a lecture how to built a 280M state of the art hospital in 20 minutes, and my driver’s a bit lost.

    a new hospital will not apply for a level one accreditation if you spent hundreds of millions to build it. if i built a lying in clinic or an rhu to the tune of 1.5 million then that would be undertandable. but my god, the new APH was built to the tune of 280 million and still is a level one facility. takit and dr gaza may be very rich now.
    dr gaza is staking his career for takit. anyway he was nobody before takit. an unlicensed general surgeon without a patient and a husband to an under specialty board ob-gyne fending to children taking up medicine and the likes.
    Again i say this. DOH do not base its accreditation process because of the status of the hospital, wether the hospital is new or an old hospital. Dr Gaza is making it appear that the new APH is categotized as level one because the hospital is new. where in the world did dr gaza get that premise. i would accept and understand that bizarre alibi if the provincial government spent less that 5 million to build the facility. but my god the new APH was built to the tune of hundreds of millions. the money spent in building the new APH in reality would have been enough to build a level 3 hospital.
    i have only this to say. takit did not do what he promised every body to do and that is to”serve the people well. Dr gaza did what takit wanted him to do and that is to keep his eyes and mouth shut. this i have to say to dr gaza, stop defending takit and keep your mouth shut.
    \dr gaza and takit, explain the truth and do not make us fools. dr gaza, dr ka pa naman. be ashamed of your fabricated alibi. you know too well that the new aph will not qualify for level 2 accreditation because of takits and your doing.

      DR LEO, IF YOU REALLY ARE, in the philippine setting and in the level 2 setting, you will not see the departments you enumerated. even some tertiary hospitals would not have all your requirements.
      with due respect po sa inyo dr leo, dont comment on things you dont have grasp to. iba po noon at ngayon. iba rin po ang states at abra.
      we all mean good but do not make us locals as if you are better than us.this i say, STAY IN ABRA AND OBSERVE. THEN AND ONLY THEN SHOULD YOU TALK DR LEO. your opinion is good but we are not in the states. we will get there. so until then keep your experience in the states to yourself. it is not helping.

    • in the banner story of this thread, dr leo, the requisites of accreditation are clearly stated. also the status of seares clinic(Petronilo Seares Memorial Hospital) and Bangued Christian Hospital (Bringas) is clearly stated and as it says, both are level 2 hospitals. if you want more info, go into the official page of DOH (www.doh.gov.ph) and not base your assumptions on your research on other sites

      Posted by mario bang | February 24, 2014, 3:11 pm

        My understanding is that… both Seares Memorial Hospital and the Bringas Christian Church Hospital are

        categorized at level 2 and NEW APH level 1 according to DOH ACCREDITATION.

        SIR, I’m deeply sadden to learn the low level the APH has attained. The many DOCTORS employed in the

        OLD APH could have shared their MEDICAL knowledge with GOV. TAKIT on how a General Hospital

        should be. I’m certain the GOV. could have CONSIDERED their advise.

          DR TUAZON, i dont even think you know the situation in the ground, but it seems that you are a fan of takit by saying that the many doctors employed in the old aph could have shared their medical knowledge with gov takit on how a general hospital should be, gives you away. you are in the states and you believe that takit hade absorbed the democratic way of the americans, but sad to say, TAKIT IS STILL FILIPINO! takit only listens to dr gaza, who do not have any experience at all. if you read thru all the comments in this thread, you will know what kind of a guy gaza is.
          to tell you quite frankly dr leo, takit is not asking anybody but his wife.
          one request dr tuazon, tell your friend takit to save his face now. and also, please only comment on things you are personally knowledgable.
          you claim to be a doctor but sorry to say but i think you didnt have the opportunity to serve our people. you are just pretending to be. we are in the ground and we feel what the people of abra yearn for. if you really are a doctor, why not come and talk to your fellow “statesman” takit to heed to the call of the people.

        • doking leo, you could have lend your expertise being in the medical field yourself and NOT only that, takit was also your nephew. At least you could have send him to medical school and teach him how to become a true public servant NOT a people’s master. Instead, Takit became a leon and a volture. He and his wife already have their eyes set how to rob the people of abra by pretending to care. With doking gigi on their side, everything is a done deal.
          Also, it seems you really care with my fellow abrenios/abrenias, why don’t you ask takit and his wife ruby where are the balikbayan boxes you sent intended for the hospital. I bet you, it’s somewhere in his farm or glen’s farm being used to surgically repair their badly beaten fighting cocks with Pikong as their tending unlicensed veterinary.

  34. Poor Abrenian!!!! I don’t see progress at all in Abra. Mga mayors lang ang may magagandang buhay. They can buy luxury cars, they can build beautiful houses or buy condo in Manila. Where do they get their monies? They are stealing money intended for you people. Wake up!!!

  35. in takit’s world of politics, stupidity is noT a handicap. it is a talent and an art of mastering in thievery.

  36. Whenever takit does a thoroughly stupid thing, it is always from the noblest motives in the eyes of his alipores. galit sila kay vicsyd when he was in power. mas grabe naman ngayon kurakot. suplad ken vicsyd idi. tetta grader ken takit.

  37. As the biggest corrupt politician, Takit is very very good in posing as a servant in order to become a master. His minions let him do a thing his cleverness forbids.

    Dumb, dumbner and dumbness!

  38. I just saw a snake having sex with a volture, and i thought, its business as usual for takit.

  39. Takit was a very wise man he has a lot of front man and the real mananakaw bagman connections…like in APH doctors for example.. .you can tell by looking by their houses luxury cars and lavish tour of the world which is so hard to think and understand where the heck their funds comin from ,i am looking at myself ,i am a doctor in Kaiser hosipital here in America but i can not do what my fellow doctors are doing in APH.,,,yes i know that they are laughing at me the consolation that i have is my funds are coming from my hardwork..i am not jealous but for God sake makonsensiya naman po sana kayu..ragsak yo met nga kitaen ta marigrigat nga kakailian tayun apo..when disaster comes my country Philippines begging for help like storm Yolanda hence it is only now that i realized that the funds alloted to Abra is being funneled to few people…when dissaster comes there are no more funds. available

  45. MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Health (DOH) and representatives from private hospitals have reached a compromise that will give healthcare facilities a maximum of 3 years to comply with the government’s hospital reclassification scheme.
    In a press briefing, Health Secretary Enrique T Ona told reporters the agreement allows hospitals to beef up their facilities and comply with the DOH’s new rules on hospital classification based on Administrative Order No. 2012-0012.
    “The AO will apply immediately to new hospitals. For those that are already existing, especially those without operating rooms, they will be given a maximum of 3 years, but I’m sure most of them will be able to do it in a year or a year and a half,” Ona said.
    Ona said half of the estimated Level 1 hospitals under the old ruling need to spend some P10 to P15 million to put up a decent operating room. This would put them under Level 1 category in the new classification.
    He said that as of 2011, there are a total of 733 government hospitals and 1,088 private hospitals. Presently classified as Level 1 are 771 facilities composed of 372 public hospitals and 399 private hospitals.
    The health secretary said he’s confident that after 3 years or earlier, more than half of these Level 1 hospitals would be able to retain their classifications under the new rules.
    Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines (PHAP) President Rustico Jimenez said they support the DOH’s move. However, he said the DOH must help in fast-tracking PhilHealth payments, which are often delayed, and reaching out to other agencies on matters that currently hound hospitals.
    Jimenez said one of these agencies is the Department on Environment and Natural Resources. It has imposed a fine of P200,000 per day for improper hospital waste management, which, Jimenez said, is difficult for some hospitals that don’t own a waste facility.
    “As I said, we are agreeable to those terms because before, our request to Secretary Ona was that only new hospitals [ought to] be covered by the AO. If you read the AO, there was no mention of 3 years. After that, Secretary Ona released the 3 years so I think we are agreeable to that,” Jimenez said.
    He also expressed the hope that DOH help the PHAP and the Philippine Hospital Association (PHA) stay as members of the board of PhilHealth. Some lawmakers are pushing for the removal of the two organizations from the board of PhilHealth on grounds that their membership creates a conflict-of-interest situation.
    New classifications
    Under the new DOH reclassification order, Level 1 hospitals should have the following facilities:
    • surgery room
    • isolation
    • surgical and maternity facilities
    • dental clinics
    • secondary clinical laboratory
    • blood station
    • first level X-ray
    • a pharmacy
    Level 2 hospitals require additional departmentalized clinical services including:
    • a respiratory unit
    • high pregnancy risk unit
    • second level X-ray with mobile unit
    Level 3 hospitals should have:
    • DOH-accredited teaching and training on 4 major clinical services, ambulatory surgical and dialysis clinics
    • a blood bank

    Destiny to offer services to the people of ABRA was not afforded to me during the dark years of the
    .province. ..( GOV. VICSYD VALERA ERA) who was removed from office by a democratic way by you r

    friend TAKIT.

    MARIO, could you have remained as an ADVISOR then to your friend TAKIT? IF YOU DID…

    SIR. many of your wonderful ideas for improving the province like …. rehabilitating the OLD HOSPITAL,

    instead of building a new hospital, hiring qualified doctors in the hospital , putting up a ZONING BOARD

    FOR THE COMMUNITY OF BANGUED, and many more.

    Posted by Leo B. Tuason, M.D. | March 3, 2014, 3:37 am
    • Doc Leo, Mario bang was one of the advocate to rehabilitate the old hospital and so are the Luna family. But your nephew was too stubborn cuz you and I know what that means, “less to corrupt that he will be disappointing his wife, madam X in the process”. You know as they say, every man’s downfall is a woman behind it. That’s the reason why this GHOSTPITAL is a BIG failure. It was corrupted from the beginning before it even started. I’ve mentioned time and time again that Takit and his wife are very good in pretending to care to become the people’s master and they forget the meaning of public service. In the time of Vicsyd, i don’t agree almost on everything what he does and I belong to the opposition. But I have to admit, it was far better compared to now. This is like comparing apples to oranges. Killing was still rampant just like the time of Vicsyd and the corruption in Abra is at all-time high since Takit was in power. Corruption is no longer shocking. It has become acceptable and a way of life. Abra is facing a systematic problem of corruption and payoffs which unfortunately even found its way to the military, media and CCAG people which these so called people are supposedly the voice of the masses. If we, the people of Abra don’t stand up and say enough is enough, corruption will continue to worsen. Fighting corruption is NOT enough anymore. A new breed of politics are needed as well. But with no cooperation from the public, the task seems nearly impossible. These are the people who have been elected to represent us are NOT doing their job with NO action at all. Starting from the congressman to the governor, to the mayor and to the barangay officials.

    • Dr leo, I was with the group of takit that toppled vicsyd valera. It was in the hope that, takit could had imbibed amercan values because of his long stay in the states but to our dismay, he didn’t. If takit could have only kept his promise to my group, I know and I believe that the state of the hospital would have been very different, the hospital could have been better than during the time of dra purugannan under gov vicsyd. Because believe it or not, the old hospital was much better then, than the new hospital now. The old hospital only deteriorated during the term of takit.
      sad to hear that you were not able ti serve your fellow abrenians. You could help now by talking to your telling your relative takit to heed to the clamour of the people for him to do good and make amends.
      if takit only _would listen to us, he could still save face. Takit should not listen to dr gaza who has no background in management, neither should he listen to his wife ruby because she too has no management skills especially hospital management. I have seen how ruby acts as if she were a doctor or equal to a doctor. She is very arrogant in dealing with some doctors. But her favorite is dr gaza and I wonder why, hehehe. Am I smelling some thing? Hahaha.
      having read about my comments dr leo, surely you know that if I were the adviser of takit, he would have not failed, but he turned his back on us who helped him get into power. He is very rich now and could pay his way to where he wants. Now his wife mis aspiring to be gov, damn what a big joke.

    I’m very please to learn from you that you keep tab on the BALIKBAYAN BOXES containing machines like


    INSTRUMENTS in three boxes because STAINLESS STEEL INSTRUMENTS are heavy stuff

    through GOV. TAKIT. my one hope is that these instruments reached the hospital to be used by qualified



    DR. LEO.

    • Hope is all you can do doking leo. The important thing is not to stop asking/questioning. Don’t you want to know, doking leo? Are you scared to find out the truth that’s it somewhere in the chicken farm NOT being intended for my fellow abrenios? Did they even acknowledge or send you a “thank you” note? If not, then that just shows you who and what Takit became, a volture. So much emphasis has been placed upon the false that the significance of the true has been obscured that in Takit’s world of politics, it has come to convey the meaning of shrewd, crafty politician and a cunning selfishness, instead of candid and sincere public service.
