    What's this I read about all the private hospitals belonging to the Phivate Hospital Association of the Philippines (PHAP) going on hospital holiday?

    It seems that they are protesting this in protest to a recently passed republic act, allowing patients who don't have the immediate capacity to pay to check out of the hospital on a promissory note only. They said that this would kill their business/industry.

    If what I read was right, they would only accept emergency room cases and maternity cases but would not admit patients. Also, if I what I deduce is right, for them its "business first, patients later" i.e. they are looking at hospital operations from mostly a business standpoint and less from a social/public service standpoint.

    Any truth to this news?

    I've also read this a few weeks ago... they would push with this hospital holiday one or twice a month.

    This seems really absurd to me.

    anak ng pating, eh kawawa naman ang mga pasyente nyan. What if iisa lang ang accesible na hospital sa 3 barangays at nagkatong private pa toh. Don't tell me they would refuse patients na hinde critical ang lagay? Anak ng pating talaga oo...

    If ever matuloy ang "hospital holiday" na ito, Asian Hospital will not join the "holiday".

    Well, that is good news and quite noble of them.

    Paano kaya yung mga hospitals dun sa 'min sa Bulacan?

    It is true. Seems certain hardliners of the PHAP (around 300 hospitals) will push through with their self-proclaimed "hospital holiday" until December 2007. Yung iba naman are still looking for a diplomatic solution.

    Being in the C&C industry, I sympathize with their plight. Marami na talagang kaso na pagka-pirma ng promissory note, tatakbuhan na lang ang responsibilidad. Hindi naman charitable institution ang ospital, business pa rin, with employees having their own families to feed.

    Yung ibang mga ospital naman kasi, nasa ward na nga yung pasyente, ino-overcharge pa rin. My father-in-law was hospitalized recently sa UDMC twice in a span of 1.5 months, yung first for stroke, 2nd for pneumonia, stayed a total of 3 weeks, over 130k yung bill (net), hindi pa kasama yung PF.

    Sana nga maayos yung gusot asap.

    I think kaya natuloy na naging law ito dahil magiging illegal detention pag gusto ng umuwi/i-uwi ang pasyente na magaling na. At saka kung di makakalabas ang pasyente ay lalong lalaki ang bill nya.

    Di ba na illegal din para sa mga hosp na mag require ng downpayment bago ma-admit for confinement.
