DUMAGUETE CITY, Sept. 9 (PIA) -- The newly-constructed facility of Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH) is now ready to operate.

Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo and Vice Gov. Mark Macias led other officials of the provincial government in inaugurating the said building on Sept. 7, 2020.

The isolation facility contains 34 rooms equipped with negative pressure machines and also embedded with oxygen lines.

All rooms have bio-steel doors and its own air-conditioning system.

The building also has a 24-hour back-up generator, a centralized oxygen room, its own nurses’ station, doffing room, and morgue.

The isolation facility is intended for the treatment of patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms and other forms of communicable diseases.

Degamo said the establishment of an isolation facility inside NOPH will boost the government hospital’s competitiveness and enable the health care facility to catch up with other private hospitals around the city.

“If you notice kita ra ang naa ani within the city (If you notice, it’s only NOPH which has this facility within the city). We really need this during this pandemic,” Degamo disclosed.

Macias said this would also enhance the provincial government’s COVID-19 response capability.

Usa ana ang paghimo ug isolation facility (One way to address this is the establishment of an isolation facility). I think this is record breaking. We have this facility this big and this good,” Macias said.

The facility was completed within the target date of 60 days.

Negros Oriental’s top executives lauded the contractor of the project for their commitment to finish the structure within the target days given to them.

They also thanked the Sangguniang Panglalawigan for their support towards the realization of this project.

The funds for the construction of the NOPH isolation facility was taken from the provincial government’s P98-M Bayanihan Funds.

Engr. Louie Tijing of PhilSouth, the project contractor, assured the public that they have complied with the guidelines of the Department of Health (DOH) during the construction of the isolation facility.

The facility is made of reinforced concrete while negative pressure mechanisms placed in every room has a three-filter system to thoroughly cleanse and purify the air circulating within the building.

Tijing noted that the negative pressure systems is also a way “to protect nurses and doctors on duty.”

He also assured the neighboring homes and buildings adjacent to the isolation facility that there is nothing to fear as the air emitted from the facility is clean.

“That is the machine that will assure them na mas limpyo pa ang palibot dire kaysa maglakaw-lakaw ka sa kadalanan kay tulo ang atong filtration system dire. Guaranteed na ang hangin na mogawas dire limpyo gyud siya (That is the machine that will assure them that the air surrounding the facility is cleaner compared to the air quality when you go around the streets because of our three-layer filtration system. The air here is guaranteed clean),” Tijing emphasized.

Meanwhile, Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Remollo, who was one of the guests during the inauguration, also congratulated the provincial government on this development.

Naa na gyud dedicated building or isolation facility para sa mga COVID patient nato (for our Covid patients). This will enhance our capability to treat COVID patients. Congratulations to the governor, the vice governor, to the members of the (provincial) board for the speedy implementation of the project,” Remollo said.

The mayor also shared his plans to replicate the facility at the city level.

Naa man pod ta sa city na project na national government na wala nahuman diha sa Talay. It should have been a mini-hospital. I’m now planning na i-pursue na siya. Mangayo ta ug permission sa regional DOH to turn over the unfinished building para kita na ang motiwas. Himoon pod tingali nato ug isolation facility (We also have an unfinished project in Brgy. Talay. It should have been a mini-hospital. I’m now planning to purse this. I will ask the regional office of DOH to turn it over to us so we can finish the construction. We will make it an isolation facility),” Remollo said. (ral/PIA7-Negros Oriental)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.
