The Department of Health earlier apologized for offering P500 daily pay to volunteer doctors and nurses during their "month-long contribution," a rate criticized by some sectors.Volunteer doctors should be hired and paid at least P50,000 a month, which is the entry-level salary grade for government-hired physicians, while nurses should receive at least P22,000, according to Dr. Geneve Reyes, secretary-general of Health Action for Human Rights.
"At dapat po, yung quarantine of 14 days after tour of duty, dapat sagutin nila yun," Reyes told ANC on Sunday.Yap, of the ACT-CIS party list who chairs the House Committee on Appropriations, said it was possible to fund the volunteer health workers' recommended salary as government estimates more than P40 million should be earmarked for them.
"Kami po, willing po kami ibigay yun dahil sa totoo lang ngayon, parang giyera to eh. Pagka naging volunteer ka, hindi pwedeng sabihin na volunteer ka lang, extra lang yung trabaho mo," he told ANC in a separate interview.Yap said Congress can suggest to the executive branch to source from the P275 billion fund earmarked for the crisis, any needs for the country's frontliners.
A proposed P1.6 billion supplemental budget may also be pushed, he said."Yung buhay po nila, tinataya nila para sa atin. So, nararapat lang po na bigyan sila ng bayad para sa mga doctors and nurses talaga."As of Saturday, 593 "health warriors" have signed up to be assigned in 3 government hospitals designated for COVID-19 patients, Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said.
Token salary Nkakatakot naman maging doctor... Volunteer tas may salary?!!! Volunteer walang bayad. Buti} a restatement nyo...Govt. is willing to pay 50k salary for doctors who are willing to be a frontliner in covid-19 treatment. See when we criticize the govt iamkarendavila I want my tax to go directly to these frontliners. Damned you corrupt politicians. Hope you get contracted with the virus.
lingtotheling Di niyo kasi pinakitunguhan ng maayos dati ang mga Nurse. Pinagkaperahan niyo pa. Ayaw pa manila ni villar sa talento nila kasi 'caregiver' lang daw. Kaya nagalisan sa pilipinas mga nurse natin. Masyado niyo nakurakot. Para mkarenew ng PRC kailngn kuha p ng units as per trillanes Volunteer? BIG WORD
'willing' is the key word... In short, they 'won't' give that much amount... As it should While Mocha enjoying 150k+ salary and 50k for volunteers risking their lives? It’s not enough. Doctors aren't the only ones who volunteer to be on the frontlines. You know you live in a fu€ked up society when the government's mentality is nurses are just mere 'alalay ng doktor'.
So, di na po yun volunteer... I remember when I graduated, I volunteered in CaloocanHealthDepartment as a MedicalTechnologist for a month, didn't received anything... 🙄 Donate kaya ng mga congressman senators mga sweldo nila sa volunteer health workers Di hindi na siya volunteer, kasi may pay na😂😂
Hahahaha!!! Ganern!!!! Good luck sa inyong makahanap after the 500 peso mess DOH made And for nurses and other health care sectors? 50k is actually very cheap for such heroic job! Wherein people are collecting more just by throwing false information to people. 10,000.00 /day dapat!!! DO IT! 100k dapat!! ung sahod ni MochaUson ang puntiryahin nio takteng bugak na yan.
willing but not capable. Covid_19 50K still lower than the monthly salary of Mocha Uson. Frontliners deserve better deal From 15K to 50K real quick! iamkarendavila Wala nang nakadisclose na specific monetary compensation para lang makalusot. willing lang naman! di naman sinabing they will! 🌵💩 Dapat. Buhay nila naka taya.
50K for a Doctor? Magkalat ka na lang ng fake news may 150k ka monthly. E yung nurses? 500/day pa din? Ano yan lokohan iamkarendavila Ayan ang nagagawa ng mga nagsasalita at pumupuna! Di ito pagrereklamo bagkus ipinapakita ung hindi patas n pagtrato! Thank you people! Si mocha uson nga 150k sweldo wala naman ginagawa. Kulang pa yan! Quarantint
iamkarendavila Bakit 'willing'? Dapat 'Government WILL pay P50-k'. iamkarendavila Ang buhay ng mga doctor dito sa Pinas pang 50k lng pala. Sad!!! Dapat kang asnhun nyo yang hinihingi n power n yan iamkarendavila just another propaganda it's a BIG difference from 'willing' to 'will pay' 50k iamkarendavila LOL willing ha. Parang utang na loob pa nila. These are PROFESSIONALS. They hold licenses. They deserve better pay volunteer or not
iamkarendavila DOHgovph Kung hnd pa sa galit ng mga tao, parang limos lang bigay nyo sa volunteers who'll risk their lives to help.Why d charitable institutions even private indvduals lyk 143redangel can provide PPEs on time.Bakit ang bagal bagal ng DOH kumilos? Alam ba ni Duque ginagawa nya? This is the reason why voicing out and criticizing is a must on this time of crisis! Everyone in the gov't should be held accountable for their actions and/or inactions!
iamkarendavila willing pa lang. malamang hindi ibigay iamkarendavila All talk. Eto ang naidudulot ng pagpuna at pagrereklamo sa maling patakaran ng gobyernong ito. At parang utang na loob pa ng mga doctors sa gobyerno yung ipapasahod. Pambihira naman. We owe it to these professionals so it's just right to give them a decent pay at least kung di at par.
di na Php500, Php50000 na? wheeeeee DOH shud remember the pay they will give health volunteers will only be for the duration of the crisis . Now the next agenda is to open up more sites for COVID patients. Hospitals are turning away patients due to full capacity. And more ventilators.. Cheap. Make it atleast as high as the salary of the President. Atleast these Doctors will risk their lives unlike the President , he is hiding.
Remote delivery by doctors via Skype will go a long way to save the lives of doctors especially the senior and health compromised who continue as front line volunteer. Pls develop the system, St Luke's, MakatiMed, Medical City- asap! DO IT! P 50K for doctors then how much for nurses? from 500 to 50,000. the additional 00s signifies the balls you gotta have to be in the frontline
Hahaha! 50k? Yung isang fake news peddler 100k a month tas sa mga doctors 50k? Huwag kami mga idol sa gobyerno. That should read, “The Governent WILL HIRE & PAY (for one month) Doctors P100k and Nurses P50k for putting their lives on the line to help battle this pandemic!” Baka naman pag magvovolunteer pa lang, pag bayaran na e iba na. Di ka makapagreklamo kasi nagvolunteer ka.
Ngayon nyo lang narealize yan. Pwede naman pala mag-allot ng budget for them, especially for nurses. 50k-doctors, 22k-nurses? Kulang na kulang. Galingan nyo pa DOH kahit pa mga graduating medical students hire them na kahit hgang duration lng ng ECQ..wag lang 500/day pls lang kahit assistant lang parang ojt lang nila this will help
If all Congressmen and Senators except Pacman will give up their 2 months salaries for the COVID19PH cause we can give volunteer doctors decent allowance to help fight and contain the crisis. UAE and the US are opening up jobs for medical practioners. The US, Seoul, China, Sen. Pacquiao, Jack Ma, & now Singapore, have donated millions of $$$ & medical aid (face masks, PPE, Test Kits). Duterte & DOH are both sitting on OVER P275-B in govt funds. Yet, DOH says we lack $$$ & medical supplies, and govt can't compensate fronliners.
Good news! I pray that we can extend more for them including all those who are already in the battle. Absurd. Kaya naman nila but no they chose to be stingy sa mismong health workers. Just imagine if people didn't call DOH out. How about for nurses eh sila ang mas maliit na salary. Sana maconsider din po ng ating government
🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️ Don't call for volunteers, hire them! Oh di ba? From ₱500 per day to ₱50k per month. Paki taasan rin ang salary ng lahat ng healthcare workers. Anong willing? Hahaha, parang kasalanan pa ng mga nag frofrontline ung nCov, tas bat naging political ung balita nyo? Pwede kayo mag start ng fund raising para mapa less ung problem ng pinas..
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 'Willing'? They should! I want my taxes to go to supporting the frontliners both medical and domestic tranquility. 'Willing' is NOT the same as 'will'. Hahaha “” Kulang pa po yan. This is why WE NEED your voice people! Be more vigilant. Speak up. ChangeIsComing What about nurses willing to volunteer?
Pano kaya ang nurses?

Doctors, health workers outraged at DOH's P500 daily allowance for COVID-19 hospital volunteersper hour lang yan na sahod ng dishwasher dito to think na nakalagay na sa hukay isang paa nila😀 Again... why is Duque still the DOH Sec? DZMMTeleRadyo hindi ba Php 537 yung minimum wage?
DOH apologizes for P500 daily allowance for COVID-19 hospital volunteersNow what? Government has trillions! P500 per day. Are you crazy?! No wonder why medical personnel choose to work abroad....

DOH is offering a P500 daily allowance for 'volunteer' health workers and people are outragedThe Department of Health’s call for volunteer health care personnel was questioned online after it posted a daily commodity distribution report which was perceived as not enough to protect them against the novel coronavirus disease.
