BALTIMORE – Four Filipino nurses filed a discrimination complaint before the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against a hospital that allegedly fired them for speaking their native language at work.

Nurses Corina Capunitan Yap, Anna Rowena Rosales, Hachelle Natano, and Jazziel Granada claimed the Bon Secours Health System terminated them without due process and dismissed them solely for speaking in their native tongue.

The hospital’s policy states that English is the principal language and must be the exclusive language spoken and written by all employees while on duty in the emergency department.

However, the nurses, who are being represented by the Migrant Heritage Commission, said that they do not recall speaking in Tagalog in front or while providing patient care in the Emergency Department. They admitted speaking in their native language only during breaks at the Nurses’ Station.

More RP nurses going to Britain

MANILA, Philippines—More Filipino nurses are now leaving for the United Kingdom than those going to the United States over the past three years as immigration policies continue to impede demand for foreign nurses in America.

Emmanuel Geslani, a consultant of several Manila-based recruitment agencies, said Filipino nurses were finding it easier to seek employment
in the United Kingdom via the study-and-work program introduced by the British health service four years ago.

“Filipino nurses hoping to work in the United States may have to wait five to seven years for H1-B working visas and two to three years for EB-3 immigrant visas before they can enter the US while those interested in improving their academic qualifications can enter the UK under the study-and-work program,” Geslani said.

The possible deployment of Filipino health workers to Norway will increase the country’s intellectual capital and wealth, the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) said on Saturday.

Labor Acting Secretary Romeo Lagman made the statement after disclosing that Filipino nurses and caregivers may likely be deployed to Norway as soon as labor and health officials of Norway and the Philippines finalized talks on the matter.

“There are still apprehensions on the part of Norway particularly on the issue of ‘brain drain’ and the language training,” Lagman said in an interview.

“But we have 60,000 nurses produced every year, and enrollment for such course is not going down. We have an oversupply of nurses and we do not see a draining in our medical pool by increasing our deployment overseas,’’ he said.

According to Lagman, most European countries are now looking at the impact of social migration and do not want to take advantage of countries that are experiencing the brain drain phenomenon.

Norway labor and health officials are expected to visit the Philippines within the year to continue talks on ways to create employment for Filipino health workers.

New US health bill to push demand for Filipino nurses

CEBU, Philippines - The demand for Filipino nurses abroad, especially in the United States (US), is expected to surge in the coming years with US President Barack Obama’s signing into law the US ’ health reform bill.

“It’s just a matter of time. They (US) would need plenty of doctors and nurses to take care of some 26 million Americans who will be covered by (the US government’s health insurance,)” said Potenciano Larrazabal, president and chairman of the board of Cebu Doctors’ Group of Companies.

The US health reform bill benefits mostly households making less than four times the poverty level. Those without insurance in this group will become eligible to receive subsidies, according to a report.

Larrazabal said in an interview that the US will be able to absorb more nurses after Congress will be able to modify the retrogression law that the country is following in processing applications. The law, he said, is one factor that slowed down the entry of nurses to the US .

Retrogression is the term used by the US Government to describe when more people apply in a certain category than there are visas available. The U.S. Department of State (DOS) establishes the cut-off date, which is the priority date of the first applicant who could not be issued a visa within the numerical limits. Visa numbers are available only to those applicants with priority dates before the cut-off date.

MANILA, Philippines—Japan should “open up” to the world once more, including to more non-Japanese nurses, Japan’s Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama said in a speech during the Sixteenth International Conference on the Future of Asia hosted by the Nihon Keizai Shimbun on May 20

“We should increase the numbers of non-Japanese nurses in Japan and consider ways to enable them to help their compatriots here when required as nurses who speak the same mother tongues,” Hatoyama said.

“And in order that the family members of non-Japanese persons in Japan can receive the right education with peace of mind, we will develop educational facilities and enhance Japanese language educational institutions in the country,” he added.

Hatoyama’s statement came two weeks after 116 Filipino nurses and caregivers flew to Japan last May 9 under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA).

“The development of the domestic environment related to ‘(protecting) life’ and systemic reforms to ‘open up the nation’ further in lifestyle and social system aspects are as important, or indeed in some cases even more important, than economic measures such as trade liberalization,” he said.

Filipino nurses much in demand (Saudi Arabia)

Saudi Arabia is one of the main destinations for registered Filipino nurses. The Saudi Ministry of Health is the top employer of Filipino nurses here.

The Philippines and the Kingdom have agreed to provide training programs for Filipino nursing graduates intending to work in Saudi Arabia, according to an announcement made by Labor Undersecretary Carmelita M. Pineda during a farewell reception for Ambassador Antonio P. Villamor.
The new initiative was agreed after talks with Ministry of Health (MOH) officials led by Deputy Health Minister Ali Al-Qahtani.

Filipino nursing graduates who go through the training program will be assured of work at MoH hospitals and primary health care centers in Saudi Arabia. Vicente M.Cabe, Labor Attaché at the Consulate General of Philippines in Jeddah, explained that the training program would be equivalent to a six-month work experience in a hospital. Filipino nursing graduate who undergoes the training will need only one-and-a-half years of work experience, because the Kingdom usually requires two years work experience when hiring nurses.

“We have many inexperienced nurses or their experience is not matching the required skill. These nurses can take advantage of this new program,” said M. Cabe.
