The Chief of Hospital of the Bais District Hospital has branded as “exaggerated” claims of a patient’s daughter that a nurse at the Bais hospital ignored repeated requests to check on her father in distress, leading to his death, because the nurse only preferred to be on the online platform TikTok.

Provincial Health Officer Liland Estacion quoted Bais City Chief of Hospital Dr. Mark Aranas as saying the claim of the patient’s daughter was exaggerated, even as he said he will make a full report on the incident.

Dr. Estacion’s comment was sought after the deceased patient’s daughter made a post on social media which became viral.

The daughter claimed the family approached the nurse a number of times to go check on their father, and have his empty intravenous fluid bag replaced.

The daughter also said the medication given to her father may have caused his death. This claim cannot be independently-verified.

The Provincial Health Office Chief of Negros Oriental on Tuesday emphasized that medical workers in government hospitals are not allowed to engage in the mobile video application TikTok or other similar online platforms while on duty.

Dr. Estacion told the media that an investigation is underway regarding the viral social media post. “It’s a big no for them to play TikTok while at work. Patients and other duties must come first,” Estacion said.

She declined to comment on the allegations until the final incident report is submitted.

Still, she reassured the public that proper sanctions would be imposed upon the conclusion of the investigation, with due process, if any of the hospital workers is found to be remiss in his duties. (Judy F. Partlow/PNA)
