Medics want heads to roll at PRC, CHED

Medics want heads to roll at PRC, CHED

By Macon Ramos Araneta

A group of doctors, health professionals and students yesterday called on President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to attend to her “unfinished task” of holding certain officials accountable for the leakage in the June nursing examination.

Health Alliance for Democracy secretary-general Dr. Gene Alzona-Nisperos urged the President to sack officials of the Professional Regulations Commission and the Commission on Higher Education.

While the President has ousted five members of the Board of Nursing, Nisperos said that “everybody seemed to have conveniently forgotten the culpabilities of the PRC and CHED officials.’’

Instead, Nisperos said the President kept some distance between her and these people by placing the PRC under the labor department.

He said the President’s move replacing the nursing board officials tagged in the nursing leakage is not at all surprising due to the propensity of the dispensation to come up with band-aid solutions to address the problem.

Nisperos said the Arroyo administration hopes to assuage public outcry by relieving some of its officials, but not those most responsible for the problem.

Those who got their walking papers were nursing board chairman Eufemia Octaviana and members Remedios Fernandez, Letty Kuan, Estelita Galutira, Anesia Dionisio and Virginia Madeja. Carmencita Abaquin was named acting chairman, and Leonila Faire, Betty Merritt, Perla Po, and Marcos Antonio Sto. Tomas as board members.

He said the President should also get rid of PRC and CHED officials and reform the nursing program if the government wanted to restore the integrity of the nursing exams.
