Philippines hospital emergency departments are experiencing extremely crowded conditions due to lack of doctors. Because of this, the doctor in charge is urging those who are in tremendous pain to take aspirin,there were a numbers of patients crowded in one particular room.He basically said that we are not in a situation where we can accept more patient until we can take care of this issue of overcrowding.Mostly who are poor were being denied basic care.
It can be understandable that doctors want to get paid,they invest time and money in medical school.They want to get away from poverty and corruption, and if they can afford to do so, doctors moved to richer countries:These is the major reason for the declining health services in our country, which contributes to this brain drain, thus twisting the knife in the back, so to speak and the poor have to bear the burden. Doctor is strongly linked to global labor markets. Shortages of doctors in richer countries send strong market signals to our country with an inevitable response through increased flows of doctors immigrating, leaving our country. With the growing global demand for physicians and other health workers, medical doctors in our country continue to dwindle in number and are fast becoming a rare breed. Doctors actually choose to stay in the country over the lure of high-paying jobs but the lack of support from the government drives them away.They would want to stay and treat people, but government hospitals do not have the necessary facilities and it’s very frustrating for them.When they become disappointed they process their passport also and leave.
Blame it on doctors’ incomes. Physicians are not always satisfied because they would like to earn more money. I don’t know a single physicians do not all the time ask for more money. This is basically part of the description of their job.Unless,the doctor is your mother,father,sister,brother or cousin they might give you a dose higher than aspirin.
Training doctors is expensive, and keeping them saves country’s money. Doctors face unsafe conditions in the workplace, poor pay and working conditions, low morale and motivation, lack of supportive supervision, and too frequently, death from the very diseases they work to cure or physical violence from disgusted patients. The country’s population is growing, but the number of health workers and doctors is stagnating or even falling in many of the places where they are needed most.
