Fistulas of fury

October 25, 2018

Unprofessional, unethical, unchristian.

PedXing could not categorize the treatment of a fellow dialysis patient by a university hospital in Dasmarinas City run by a supposedly Christian brotherhood any other way.

Although their kidneys may be down, they are up in arms against the hospital administration and medical staff for giving an elderly colleague the colossal and intolerable runaround that led to the patient being denied to this day a much-needed surgical operation.

PedXing has nothing but contempt for people and institutions that seem to delight in making old ladies cry.

Some sob stories are true whether you believe them or not.

This one is too close to be doubted for its truthfulness: the one telling the story is a retired teacher and wife of a fellow dialysis patient who is regularly seated and strapped next to PedXing on regular four-hour sessions a week.

Read on and weep:  

Una, me nakapa si Johnny sa kanyang “belly” na maliit na bukol, ikinunsulta niya iyon sa isang Doctor sa Dasmariñas City Medical Center. Kung saan nagpapadialysis si Johnny. Ang sabi kailangan maoperahan  ito. Nang sinabing malaking halaga ang gugugulin kung sa DCMC gagawin, so nagtanong tanong kami.

Sa DCMC kung saan nag papadialysis si Johnny for more than two years na.

Sa DCMC pinayuhan kaming sa hospital ng bayan na lang.

Nag try ako six times na madaling araw akong pumila, kasi yun ang requirements para matingnan doon, ginawa ko yon, then lahat ng requirements sinunod namin pero nang ooperahan na kailangan ng titingnan ng Internal Medicine so alang nangyari sa aking pagsisikap para matulungan kami para doon gawin ang kailangan ni Johnny sa kanyang kalagayan.

Lumipat kami sa La Salle Medical Center, doon nag-apply kami ng OPD para mababa ang kailangan naming financial.

Start ng pila doon umaga till makuha namin yung temporary ID sa OPD. After maghintay ng matagal para matawag kami sa Internal medroom.

Iyung ibang requirements nagamit yung pinagawa naming una, lab etc.

Pinapunta kami sa surgery then after ulit pinapunta kami sa Internal Medicine for final decision , at iyon ang unang pag in namin sa hospital ng LSMC.

That was July 8 and operation July 9.

Nag pa admit na kami ng July 8 after noon kung ano ano na ang hiningi ng ibang kailangan sa admittand nagband kami ng 20,000 pesos para daw don sakin deposito sa ooperahan.

Andon na ng july 9, pero ipinahinto at tinawag ako at ipostponed daw dahil mahina daw yung blood clotting ni Johnny.

Hindi natuloy, agad kinabukasan nagpadischarged na kami doon ko nalaman na marami na silang ibinawas don sa aming depositong pera na alang nangyari.

Ini schedule ulit kami ng August 1 and 2 napostponed ulit ng August5 and 6, dahil willing si Johnny na mawala yung “bukol” nya sa belly nag raised ulit kami ng 20,000 pesos.

Na admit ulit si Johnny noong August 5, na dapat August 6 ang schedule for operation, balik balik lang sila sa room ni Johnny to tell sa mga sunod na mga reasons na amazingly na nagluluko lang sila sa isang senior citizens na. nakatatlong araw kami at hindi uli (si Johnny)  naoperahan. Naubos lang nila yung pera ulit na ipinondo sa kanila. Inire schedule ulit September 6 daw. Si Lord na lang ang bahala.

October is about to end, and Manong Johnny has still not been operated on.

How long can institutions which are supposed to cure the sick, bind up wounds, and mend broken limbs be allowed to play around with people’s lives?

Poll group to join case vs Koko

Only goes to show that you can’t win them over all the time.

That’s just the way democracy works.

The anti-crime group Citizens’ Crime Watch has announced that it would file a motion to intervene in the disqualification case filed by lawyer Ferdinand Topacio against Senator Aquilino Pimentel III before the Commission on Elections.

According to lawyer Diego Magpantay, CCW president, his group has been accredited as election observer by the COMELEC in 2007. “As such election watchdog, it is our duty not only to safeguard the votes, but to safeguard the electoral process itself by insuring that only qualified candidates run in the elections,” Magpantay said.

He added that he convened the group’s board of directors, who told him that they were convinced that Topacio’s petition was “meritorious”, and that CCW should intervene in the case in favor of Topacio.

“While we are apolitical as far as our activities are concerned, we agree that Senator Pimentel should no longer be allowed to seek reelection as of now, but only because it is violative of the Constitution and the principle that no one should monopolize political power,” Magpantay also said.

He added that “our intervention in the case against Pimentel is not due to any partisan considerations, but because of our desire to uphold the Constitution and the sacred process of suffrage.”

Behold God’s glory and seek His mercy.

Pause and pray, people.
