MANILA, Philippines — Public hospital nurses in Sorsogon will receive a compensation increase after the provincial government started its implementation of a budget circular as part of the Salary Standardization Law.

Sorsogon Gov. Francis “Chiz” Escudero said that 139 nurses in nine public hospitals will be the first beneficiaries of the pay adjustment pursuant to Republic Act No. 11466 or the Act Modifying the Salary Schedule for Civilian Government Personnel and Authorizing the Grant of Additional Benefits and for Other Purposes.

“Paunang makakatanggap ng dagdag na sahod ang ating mga nurses mula sa mga pampublikong ospital dito sa lalawigan. Malaking tulong ito lalo na sa panahong ito at higit kailan ay kailangan nila ang dagdag na sweldo dahil bugbog din naman sila sa dami ng trabaho at pag-aaruga sa mga Sorsoganon gawa ng pandemya,” Escudero said in a statement.

(Our nurses from public hospitals will receive an additional salary. It will be a big help, especially at this time, and they need the pay hike because they are battered by their workloads due to the pandemic.)
