  1. WHENEVER ONE ASKS FOR THE USE OF THE BPH AMBULANCE FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF PATIENT TO TACLOBAN OR ANY OTHER HOSPITAL OUTSIDE OF BILKIRAN PROVINCE, THE PERSON IN-CHARGE OF THE SCHEDULING DEMANDS A ONE THOUSAND PESOS FEE.

    USA KA LIBO KA PESOS. MAPA KABOS MAN O DILI ANG MUGAMIT SA AMBULANSIYA SA BPH HOSPITAL.

    NO RECEIPTS. MISMO ANG DRIVER SA AMBULANSIYA ANG MANGAYO.

    UNSA MAY ACTION NGA GIHIMO SA KAPITOLYO NIINING ANOMALIYA?

    DUGAY NAMAN KINI NGA PANGILAD SA MGA EMPLEYADO SA BILIRAN HOSPITAL.

  2. YONG 1,000 PESOS NA SINISINGIL MATAGAL NG ISSUE YAN. HANGANG NGAYON PABA AY NANGYAYARI YAN? KUNG SABIHING MONG ANG 1,000 PANGBAYAD SA GASOLINA O SUHOL SA DRIVER MANGYAYARI BA YAN? SAY SA GASOLINA, BAKIT WALA BANG BUDGET ANG HOSPITAL? O KUNG BAYAD NAMAN SA DRIVER, HINDI BA REGULAR EMPLOYEE AT WALA BANG SWELDO ANG DRIVER? PARA SAAN ANG PERA.

    BAKIT BUMILI PA TAYO NG MILYON2X NGA MOBILE CLINIC AT ITONG HOSPITAL NATIN MARAMI PANG KAILANGAN.

    WAKE-UP GOVERNOR! PRIORITIZE AT GAWIN NYO ANG DAPAT GAWIN NA IKABUBUTI SA TAO.

  3. Sus maryosep, mas dako pa man d i ni sa tig 10 pesos sa terminal. hahah. Maayo gyud kay nagbinulgaray na ngari karun.. hahahha… Kita lagi ang resulta sa mga ingun nga hilig motabang daw sa katawhan, unya kanang 1000 pesos makakurog man pod na sa tuhod sa nagdala sa pasyente. Para sa unsa man nang 1000 d i nuh? Kung sa budget sa gobyerno apil man cguro na. Unya hayahay ang nagdumala ana kay kay projected sa transportation expense nang 1000 pesos cguro pero sa lawum nga bulsa pod d i ning suwod. Nga pagpangilad pod oi… hehhehe

  4. From Anymous: i know that the hospital has been receiving all these negative comments. i respect their right to express their sentiments pertaining to their bad experiences. but reading insulting, degrading comments na nag-gegeneralize na sa mga nurses, if i may quote.. MGA DANGHAG NA NURSES, and, MGA BITUKON, ug MGA CHAKA. it seemed too low of them to resort to name calling and bashing.. they had to remember that freedom of expression doesnt give them a right to insult anyone.. especially people, professionals that work everyday, 8 hours a day sometimes 9-10 hours, unpaid extra hours pa. to think na mas dako pa ang sweldo sa jeepney drivers ug maids sa amua na mas hago pa jud among trabaho. and also count the volunteer nurses nga nagtrabaho, way sweldo everyday sharing the same workload as the paid nurses. and yet they find it so easy to degrade nurses. i understand they are engraged but i hope they also try to step in our shoes as well. wala mi nagwork sa hospital nga nakahayhay ra amo mga batiis, nagkinaturog lang. we are humans too, we get upset, we get tired as well. kung nakatiming sila na suplada ang nurse it doesnt mean tanang nurses maldita. again, we apologize for that.

    despite the current problems regarding sa mga stocks na kulang. bisag short mi sa supplies, we do our very best na matagaan ug medisina, mainsertan ug IVF’s (dextrose) ang among pasyente that mangayo nalang mi sa hospital pharmacy for free especially for the indigents. we know nga naa mi pagkukulang pero di unta sila mupressure na makahatag mi sa mala tertiary type nga services kay kung tutuusin, mas daghan pa ang nangayo nga indigent kesa sa nagbabayad. in private hspitals they cannot admit patients without down payments. naa pay times matakasan mi ug pasyente na dili magbayad. i hope they will get to see that as well.. despite all of this, ilang panan-aw na mamatay pasyente mi.. we have seen miracles in the hospital. patients na masakiton jud, pero nakasurvive ghapon.. and now, discharged na. sobrang makalipay gyud na sa mga nurses ug doctors. and to tell u kuya, dili pd mi ganahan mutrabaho na wala mi materials. mauwaw n gani mi sa mga pasyente na wala mi mga gamit.. pero unsaon pd na wala pd ihatag na stocks sa amua kay wala pay stock. kami nurses kung unsa pd ihatag na stock, nagpapakaresourceful nalang gyud mi basta makahatag mi ug medisina sa pasyente.

    and the issue about the administration of zantac sa hypertensive client. they should have asked the physician why he gave that. ang nurses, kung unsay ihatag na doctors order mao pd amo ihatag. naa may patients na for example, kung gi- NPO sila or in layman’s term dili pwede pakaon-on kay giorder sa doctor, tagaan na siya ug zantac to prevent ulcer labi na kay walay gkaon ang patient. sila man gd ang muhatag ug doctors order dili kami. we carry out their orders.

    Thank you for clearing your side, and it is clear that you can’t perform well without the needed equipments, supplies and everything for medical purposes. Nurses and Doctors in BPH should not be blame for that, despite we should respect them for their services, because there’s no nurses or doctors that wanted their patients to die, they look for remedies to make their patients get well. Our government who were running this hospital should be blame. WHO ARE THEY? CLEAR TO US IF WHO THEY ARE. How many years they shoud be in this government to irradicate the lack of supplies and equipments? They preach outside the hospital that they help a lot, but wait were they really helping? The statement of Anonymous is transparent, and enough for us to understand that the government is not feeding well the need of the hospital. Just like i said before, why should the medicines that supposed to be claim at the hospital for free was not there? It is indeed at the Provincial Capitol, WHY? what’s with the CAPITOL? Is it the hospital extension? It is undeniable, it is what we see and what we hear, I can’t imagine how their blogger wrote here that (“the Governor before could not refuse to help those who ask”) maybe this is what he reffered of. To my fellow biliranon’s please RESPECT our nurses, they serve us more than their family’s. We should not put blame to them if we lose someone, their intensions for their patients were ALWAYS clean, it is their happiness if they see that their patients recover and survive from illness.

    If the current administration is willing to help our province why they refuse to handle those mobile clinic purchase by the government through GC? Why they need to buy another mobile clinic? What’s the sense of their motives? Why should the government spent another millions if we already had that mobile clinics? Is that a good TERM for HELP? or a good TERM for POLITICAL disorder. Again it is CLEAR that there not HELPING US, it is their obligation and a MUST for them to spend government funds WISELY. Those who claim that this DYNASTY were helping biliranons, please observe logically.

  6. Kining issue sa inefficient nga hospital sa biliran dugay na kini, sa panahon pa sa mga jaro ug parilla. Question: 9years ang doctor nga governor naglingkod sa capitolyo, karun tongressman na sya, unsa man iyang efforts to improve the medical needs of his constituents? pagkadako insulto ani situationa, sabagay, ato man sya gui elect isip representante, ug kita mismo dapat andam sa pagdawat sa resulta. Walay lain blaim kundi kita ra man sab na mga katawhan Biliranon sa negligience sa atong mga local leaders. Imagine, ang Naval Water District office is so proximately located sa hospital, yet walay tubig sa ward or some faucets sa hospital hinay ang pressure. Added insult to injury, may charge pa sa pag gamit sa ambulance when critical patients being brought to Tacloban city. Pastilan, this reminds us of the music “Mona Lisa” by Nat King Cole, “Many dreams (PATIENTS) have been brought to your doorstep (OF BPH). They just lie there and they die there.”

    Mao sa 2013-2016-2019 ug forever, dapat atong timan-an ni mga Espina nga wala sila matarong binuhat kanatong mga taga Biliran, kundili magloan, magloan, ug magloan. Apan ang serbisyo or “ROI” (return of investment” dakong Palpak!!!
    Espina ug mga supporters (Titing Curso, Nueve, Latoja, Jetol Solite, Kokoy Caneja, etc.) Ibagsak!

  7. I do hope all the critics were satisfied with the comment above. Some of the comments at the Biliran Island Facebook page were uncalled for and downright malicious, especially against the health care team of the hospital. If you were in our shoes and experience the hardships and hazards of being a health care worker you wouldn’t be spouting such hurtful words. If you have problems with the current administration, both provincial and hospital, be brave and face the authorities that you so easily maligned on the Internet.

    There is no harm in criticism, anyone working for a hospital, or any institution for that matter, is bound to get criticized. And we appreciate that input. But downright malicious comments? I believe they are counter-productive and will only fuel unnecessary enmity between the people involved.

    I bear no ill will against anyone. Let us all work together for towards the progress of our beloved province. And remember (for those who sounded so holier-than-thou in that aforementioned FB page): Let he who has no sin cast the first stone.

  8. When i saw the perpective view of the recent Hospital and comparing it to the old BGH that was run before prior to the Espina i could have said that way too far ( layo ra gyud ) the sorrounding vicinity as well as the building itself.
    i felt embarassed by the notion that the Espinas did nothing to improved the BGH when the truth itself is already there ( i would like to request JALMZ also to put the old picture of BGH ) kita kaau and yet mga taga naval we are blind common…….it takes Manny Pacquiao P300 M to ask PINOY and amount to build a 50 BED hospital comparing it to our hospital in Naval in which as i had known from reliable source that it had costed only about P 40 M. from diffeerent sources and fund thru the effort of former Dr. Roger Espina…so mga taga Naval and Biliran please open ur mind …..bisan sa tago lang ang paningkamot sa mga Espina para ma realized ni nga project…..at least they Espinas contributed largely in the improvement of the Hospital and yet hypocrisy still cross our mind ….well someday in our lives we cannot say we are 100% healthy enough not to land in BGH well and good…and someday when our body needs to be taken care of .. i wud suggest that you go directly to tacloban or Ormoc… and we shall see…..

  9. To all Nurses and Doctors in BGH or say Biliran Provincial Hospital affiliated with the Espinas and to thier nimeses we commended all your duty bound services you rendeered to the Biliranons …your hospital wouldnt be like this without the Paningkamot of your Dr. Govenrnor … forget those people who are blind and hypocrete enough who did not saw the improvement coz someday when nature calls they will need the services of BGH or say Biliran Provl Hospital and thats the time they will realize how important it is to be hospitalized…..in this world where we only pass by when God calls, part of it we spent in the Hospitals and i wud suggest that accept the BGH as this will hunt us down towards our every last breath.

  10. aguy kay ang nag una una ug banghag sa mga nurses sa hospital sixxxxx man, ig agaw in xxxxx. cge yaw yaw didto facebook without consideration sa feelings sa health workers didto nga tinud anay ang pag serbisyo. hilas kaayo ng tambuka. bantayi ninyo na ug ma stroke sa katambuk nganha ra man gihapon na padung. pls post dis xxxx so that she wil know how angry we are at her. dili maayo ng iynag gibuhat. murag si kinsa. salig nga ig agaw sa admin sa biliranisland.

  11. @ 6 kidlat

    IKAW KIDLAT KLARO RA SAD SA IMONG POST NGA NAMOLITIKA KA.. FOCUS DEHA SA ISSUE KAYSA MAKOMPANYA KANA WALA PA MAY ELECTION NAG-NGALAN KA MAN UG MGA TAWO. UNSA MAN DIAY PILDIRO KABA? NGANONG MAORA MAN UG BITTER KA ANING MGA TAWHANA.

    Kana si xxxxx deli na siya suod naku nga tawo pero kahibalo ako nga hapit na siya madesgrasya ug mamatay sa segi ug sagka ngadto sa bukid para makatabang sa mga kabos nga bisan unsa nalang ang maitabang.

    Ang problema lang aning tawhana kay deli ibandilyo kung unsay iyang nabuhat kay siguro wala sa iyang huna-huna nga gamiton ang iyang mga natabang sa ubang para sa iyang pagkapolitiko ug hilomon man sad gayaud kakang iyang character. Pero kensa man ang imo pili-on, ang tawo nga naglihok nga walay saba ug ang tawo ba nga naglihok pero hambogero.

    Segi pili.

  12. @ 6. kidlat

    Kana si xxxxx suod kana nakung higala. Kaila ako sa character ana niya. Secret Executor na siya deli sama sa uban nga saba-an.

    Ang problema ani niya kay pin-tok mang-estorya pero he is a no none-sense person. Deli batasan ani niya nga mambola kung unsa ang naa sa iyahang huna-huna iya kanang buhi-an mao nga ang uban tawo nga mai–igo manga-silo. So bato-bato sa langit ang tamaan ay huwag magalit.

    Ang isyo denhi mao ang service sa BPH pero nangompanya ka man mao nga kitubag taka. Ayaw lawgawa ang issue nga gi-discuss denhi aning tapika. Ako mismo wala maka-uyon sa serbisyo sa atong mga government hospital deli lang sa naval apil tibuok pilipinas. Kay ang problema gi-delegate man ang pamahala sa LGU maayo ang katuyo-an pero gigamit man sa pamolitika not like before nga directly controled sa Department of Health. Kung naay angay baghu-on sa sestima so didto angay kana ipadala sa atong national agenda.

  13. jalmz,
    now i know that indeed you really are fair. bisag imo ig agaw ako gi igo imo jud gi post. sorry lang kay ako jud ni gi personal nga issue. alang sa tanan, kung naa moy reklamo sa atong hospital ug sa bisan unsa pa nga ahensya, ibutang ninyo sa sakto ang pag reklamo. ayaw mo pag binastos ug ayaw saguli ug lain lain pa nga isyu kay mawala ang kredibilidad sa inyo reklamo. ayaw mo pagpatak ug banghag. ang sayup sa pulitiko dili sayup sa empleyado kay nag tinud anay na’g serbisyo bisan gamay kaayo ug sweldo.

  14. kanang issue sa hospital sa biliran wla p gyud n maayo kadugay n sa mga espina dha wla p gyud mkaayo cg lang ug saad. ako nka experience n gyud k dha sa hospital sa naval maayo lang n dha ug hubag lang ang sakit. maayo p deretso nlang sa tacloban o ormoc ang pasyente may cguro p pero dha sa naval hospital. ambot lang wla ayo. wla selbe…..

  15. i am deeply in pain with all the criticisms that are thrown to us.. we don’t deserve to be treated this way.. so sad that no matter how we give our best care, still our efforts are unappreciated.. we wake up early for morning shifts; stayed up late for afternoon shifts; and awake all night during graveyard shifts..

    regarding with the missing supplies, don’t you know that the national budget for health ranks fourth only? and what do you expect from a provincial hospital anyway? i was able to work at other provincial hospitals in the region, and i can say that our service is far better than them.. we, the health care team, make ends meet.. we look for free supplies and medicines for all the patients.. if it happens that we ask them to secure, that is because the supplies are consumed..

    here is the sad truth of consumed supplies: mostly, our patients are below the poverty threshold because those who can afford, send their patients to tertiary hospitals in Tacloban, Cebu or Manila.. in time for their discharge, they will go to the government offices particularly the DSWD and have their family net income categorized.. and don’t you know that 80-90% of the patients, even if the patient stayed in the hospital for days or weeks or months, they will just give their donations for the hospital services? no matter how long or short you stay in the hospital, still you are still using the hospital supplies.. and those supplies are not paid.. if we talk business here, the hospital is always releasing money without money-back guarantee.. now, do you still question why we lack the supplies?

  16. ug ikaw pud atty. %#}#% anak ni #%^%#, ayaw pagpataka ug comment, o di gani pag resesarch una b4 ka mo mo daut ug tawo. abugado kaman kaha o abugaduhon lang. nipasar ka na? kahibaw ba ka nga kadgahanan sa atong mga pasyente dinha mga taga calubian ug san isisdro? sila walay labot sa budget sa hospital kay dili man na sila taga biliran pero dili man na sila nato puydi balebaran kay nanginahanglan man pud na sila. daku ang iban sa atong supplies ug serbisyo tungod sa ila. sanglit usahay kung taga naval na ang manginahanglan wa na nuon mahatag sa ila. sanglit panginanu una. ayaw pataka yaw yaw. congrats daan sa imong pagka abugado.

  17. Hospital Efficiency Measures? This comment should be critically viewed as the first of several steps that are necessary to create agreement among stakeholders about the adequacy of tools to measure efficiency in BPH, Biliran.

    We define efficiency as an attribute of performance that is measured by examining the relationship between a specific product of the health care system (also called an output) and the resources used to create that product (also called inputs). Under our definition, a provider in the health care system (e.g., hospital, physician) would be efficient if it was able to maximize output for a given set of inputs or to minimize inputs used to produce a given output. DINHI PALANG AS A CRITERION, BAGSAK NA ANG MANAGEMENT SA BPH. They should blame the national government policy of devolution, because the LGU Province has big Internal Revenue Allotment of IRA. Tongressman Dr. Espina, for 9 years, made the mistake of establishing big resort at the expense of the POOR Medical Care of his constituents. Unfair! Sabagay, Gaba dili magsaba! May KARMA ka rin sa bandang huli.

    The created typology of efficiency measures. The purpose of the typology is to make explicit the content and use of a measure of efficiency. Our typology has three levels:

    Perspective: who is evaluating the efficiency of what entity and what is their objective?
    Outputs: what type of product is being evaluated?
    Inputs: what resources are used to produce the output?

    The first tier in the typology, perspective, requires an explicit identification of the entity that is evaluating efficiency, the entity that is being evaluated, and the objective or rationale for the assessment. We distinguish between four different types of entities:

    Health care providers (e.g., physicians, hospitals, nursing homes) that deliver health care services.
    Intermediaries (e.g., health plans, employers) who act on behalf of collections of either providers or individuals (and, potentially, their own behalf) but do not directly deliver health care services.
    Consumers/patients who use health care services.
    Society, which encompasses the first three.

    Each of these types of entities has different objectives for considering efficiency, has control over a particular set of resources or inputs, and may seek to deliver or purchase a different set of products. Efficiency for society as a whole, or “social efficiency,” refers to the allocation of available resources; social efficiency is achieved when it is not possible to make a person or group in society better off without making another person or group worse off. The perspective from which efficiency is measured has strong implications for the measurement approach, because what looks efficient from one perspective may look inefficient from another. For example, a physician may produce CT scans efficiently in her office, but the physician may not appear efficient to a health plan if a less expensive diagnostic test could have been substituted in some cases. The intended application of an efficiency measure (e.g., pay-for-performance, quality improvement) offers another way of assessing perspective.

    Apparently, we blame on the hospital staff. In fairness to them, the health care providers, they just utilize whatever resources available given to them by the management. The problem is the OVER-PRICING of medicines, etc. as a MALPRACTICE being used for several years under the stewardship of the Dr. Roger Espina, now Tongressman Espina.

    The second tier of the typology identifies the outputs of interest and how those will be measured. We distinguish between two types of outputs: health services (e.g., visits, drugs, admissions) and health outcomes (e.g., preventable deaths, functional status, clinical outcomes such as blood pressure or blood sugar control). The typology addresses the role of quality (or effectiveness) metrics in the assessment of efficiency. A key issue that arises in external evaluations of efficiency is whether the outputs are comparable. Threats to comparability arise when there is (perceived or real) heterogeneity in the content of a single service, the mix of services in a bundle, and the mix of patients seeking or receiving services. Pairing quality measures with efficiency measures is one approach that has been suggested by AQA and others to assess comparability directly.

    Dr. Veloso, Alton Durano, ug Diana Bernardes-Chawdhury: Please wake-up! Never be complacent. Pls. use the S-W-O-T Analysis. (Strength-Weakness-Opportunity-Threats Analysis), kung dili ninyo kaya, maayo pa mag mass-resignation kamo tulo aron dili sayang ang tax sa among yuta ug tax sa among bayad sa BIR. Inefficient ug mediocre kamo always!

    Confucious said,”In a country well-governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country so badly-governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.”
