    If you or anyone you know needs medical attention or a hospital’s charity program, avoid going to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) in Manila.

    You may end up getting the same shabby treatment given to a 50-year-old mother who had to go to the PGH several times for six months just to get a schedule for a surgery.

    Worse, on the day of her surgery, she was told to go home and come back two months later because there were no more beds available for charity ward patients.

    The poor lady had no choice but to pack her bags and head home in Bicol, bringing with her all the medicines and supplies, including the blood donated by her relatives.

    Dr. Rustico Jimenez, chairman of the Philippine Medical Association’s Hospital and Laboratories Department, said the decision of the PGH to send the patient home was wrong.

    Jimenez wondered why the patient was sent away when in fact it was the hospital that scheduled the operation.

    According to the patient, who asked not to be identified, she was informed that there was no bed available for her at the charity ward.

    What a stupid excuse from the PGH!!!

    Doctors at the hospital should have reserved a bed for the patient because they know that they have a non-paying patient scheduled for surgery on that date, therefore, they should have prepared a bed for her.

    So, the next time you plan to seek medical help at PGH, why not try a quack doctor? You may be better off rather than going to the PGH where doctors send patients home without seeing or curing them first. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

    Sen. Revilla may have a point
    Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla’s speech at the Senate on Monday drew mixed reactions from the public.

    Comments such as “there was nothing new” or “he is just making excuses”, and “stick to the real issue” were heard the next day.

    However, there was a line in Revilla’s speech that caught the attention of the viewers when he said “papaano tayo makasiguro na hindi maimpluwensiyahan ang Ombudsman o ang Korte Suprema ng Palasyo”?

    The lawmaker from Cavite fears that Malacanang has the capability to influence just about anybody in government because even he, a senator, was summoned by Pnoy in Malacanang during the Corona impeachment trial two years ago.

    Revilla said Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, who picked him up and took him to Malacanang to meet with the President, asked him to vote for the impeachment of then Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.

    It’s a common knowledge that in this country, those who are in power have great influence.

    1. Ag pag kausap ni Pnoy sa mga senadores sa panahong mga judges ang mga ito sa paglilitis kay Corona ay parang isang lalaki na naliligaw sa kanyang sinisinta, syempre alam na ng mga senadores kung bakit nasa harapan nila ang presidente kaya hindi na kailagang pagtalunan ito, siempre hindi aamin si Pnoy at magpapalusot ganoon din ang mga senadores lalo na kung nakatanggap sila ng 50 million each at meron pa ngang 100 million.. Ang dami palang laman ng kaban ng bayan bakit naghihikahos ang ating ekonomiya , iisa lang dahilan maraming buwayang politicos, alalahanin ninyo may KARMA, aanhin ninyo ang pera kung hindi naman magagamot ang inyong sakit ng pera.

    2. Mr. T sino man ang sitting President eh merong inpluwensiya sa kahit na sino pa. Lalo na sa Congress, Senate, Supreme Court, Ombudsman, COA, Sandiganbayan at iba pa. Lalong lalo na pag na one on one talking ang ginawa (secretly of course). Kaya po ang bottomline eh kung anong klaseng tao ang nakaupo sa Pwesto ng nasabing mga Institusyon lalong lalo na kung ang “presidential request” eh di naman saksakan ng sama.

      Dahil kinakaila ng malacanan na walang pressure mula kay p’noy para
      in convict si corona, nakakapagtaka na bakit pa niya ipapatawag
      si revilla ng pasekreto, gayong naniniwala daw siya na malakas
      ang kaso nila na SALN lang laban kay corona. Alam naman
      o commong knowledge na ng bayan na nag kasuhulan Gamit
      ang Pdaf at DAF. Hindi nagpahayag si revilla tungkol sa
      suhulan kaya wala siyang nakuhang simpatiya sa bayan.

      kung susundan natin ang depensa ng malacanan, parang
      ordinaryong kwentuhan lang ni revilla at p’noy ang
      naganap. pero dahil si boy abunda ang ginamit ni
      pnoy para magsalita sa kanilang interview ang
      masasabi ko mas kapanipaniwala na type lang siguro ni
      pangulo na makipag breakfast in bed sa poging senador kaya
      ikinubli o itinago sa publiko.
