The nursing profession in the Philippines is dying, when nurses die, hospitals and the whole healthcare system will follow.
Please include the welfare of nurses to your health agenda madam Senator. We believe that you are the right person to improve the worsening working conditions of our humble heroes in the hospitals and communities. Now, I am not asking for an increase in salary, but an increase in the dignity of our work is more valuable.
The current efforts of the Department of Health to increase the hazard pay of healthcare professionals is a good start, however, we need legislation support to update the now obsolete and not applicable nursing law. We need genuine and hardworking champions in the Senate. We need health advocates like you.
For now, we will be waiting here at the sidelines, waiting for your cue, if when to act and rally for measures to uplift our profession from the ground.
Healthy Pinoy, Healthy Pinas!
