Asleep Emergency Room staff at Rizal Medical Center got blamed by the Grandmother's death due to quick inaction





A photo went viral showing Emergency Room staff at the Rizal Medical Center sleeping at supposed to be a busy area of the hospital during working time.


The person posted the photo blamed the staff for her grandmother's death for their negligence as it is supposed to be a prompt and alert response when her grandmother has this combat to live or die. 




The uploader blamed the death of her grandmother since seems no one knows how to properly insert a nasograstric tube into the patient. 

A nasograstric tube (NGT) is a tube inserted through the patient's nose to the stomach in order to feed him or her.

Rizal Medical Center Chief of Clinics Dr. Maria Rica Lumague said the patient, who had stage 4 nasopharyngeal cancer and acute respiratory failure secondary to community-acquired pneumonia, was already weak when she was brought to the ER at 12:30 p.m. of May 20.
