CLMMRH overloaded,
help of LGUs needed

Officials of the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City are asking the city and provincial government to do their share to help decongest the hospital whose patients have exceeded its total bed capacity.

Dr. Julius Drilon, CLMMRH chief, yesterday said they are carefully assessing the patients to determine who can be admitted because if the hospital becomes overloaded, the quality of service and its resources could be affected, aside from the possible increase of infection rate, which could be detrimental to the patients.

Dr. Marlon Tabligan, Chief of Medical Professional Staff, said CLMMRH has a 400-bed capacity. Their funds from Department of Health are only enough for 400 beds, staff, and infrastructure. moremoremore

Buglasan drag race
stopped, 13 m'cycles seized

The Negros Oriental Highway Patrol Group, headed by Senior Inspector Robelito Mariano, and assisted by the Dumaguete police, led by Supt. Jovito Atanacio, rounded up more than a dozen drag racers due to complaints from residents for blocking the main road to their homes Saturday and for conducting a race without proper permits.

Mariano said the organizers claimed they have the permit for the event as part of the sports activities during the Buglasan Festival, but could not present it when asked during a confrontation with them at the drag race site behind the Negros Oriental State University Bajumpandan campus in Dumaguete City.

The 13 motorcycles were brought to the HPG headquarters, including one turned over by the Bacong police for proper documentation. Initial investigation showed most of the motorcycles have inconsistent entries, some of them have no engine and chassis number, no registration, and incomplete accessories, among others.
