Makati medical center- cetn 2012 - page 44
Hello, my fellow Filipino Nurses! I'd like to talk about the CETN program in Makati Medical Center. Last September, I was advised by a friend of mine who is currently a staff nurse in MMC, that they are already open for... Read More

I received the results of my other two referrals (UTZ and hematology) and they found something on the UTZ, which rendered me unfit for work. Ergo, the end of my application process. It was so frustrating because I was willing to undergo necessary actions for me to be cleared on that UTZ result, but then the MD in the EHC explained to me that once they find results that need close monitoring, the HR wouldn't hire you. I was so sad yesterday that I cried in front of the MD. Imagine all the effort I spent on those exams, the stress I went through on those interviews, And the money I had to shell out. Those referrals are super costly, so that's correct- if you really do have 'sabit' or strong family history of genetic diseases, don't go further than passing the final interview. Because the medicals will surely take the toll on you.Those medical exam issues sound business for me. As a requirement for pre employment, you just need a recommendation of "fit to work" ranging from category a-C. They are very strict and very costly.
- 0Mar 29 by baabaaHi guys! Sorry to hear that you weren't able to get through the medicals, but don't lose hope, maybe there are better opportunities waiting for you Anyway, regarding their medical examination, I think it's beneficial for both MMC and the applicant. For the applicant, in case something has been detected from the labs/diagnostics (hopefully none!!!), then you are at least aware of it already and you can manage it as early as now. I have batchmates who were on hold for a while for findings in their urinalysis, or those who needs to have their wisdom tooth extracted, but still they were able to undergo the training. For MMC, I think it will be costly for them to hire an employee who has the potential to miss his/her work because of her health condition (having other staff work beyond their shift / OT, or pulling out staff from other units just to replace the absentee) and of course to spend for their employee's treatment just in case he/she will need it in the future. I think this is the SOP with all other companies, it's just that MMC is much more stricter, maybe because nurses should really have a body that can withstand shifting schedule, extended working hours, NPO for the whole shift hehe, etc!

What is the probability of getting called for an interview if you have above 80% board rating but has a diploma from a not so prominent school? Thanks in advance!
- 0Apr 10 by alexidadQuote from lalasemiaWe have the same experience lalasemia. In my case they referred me both to endocrinologist and nephrologist because they found some traces of sugar in my urine. I spent almost 10k for the combine diagnostic test and lab works that I have to do to be cleared. They both provide me clearance. I passed the clearance to EHC and also told me that they will need it for final evaluation. When I went to HR to ask them regarding the status of my application, they told me that the results of my medical is not acceptable regarding their criteria. I was really devastated.Hi BlueLagoon! I am also having a problem getting cleared in my medical. They referred me to a hematologist and was diagnosed with mild thalassemia. My hematologist told me not to worry about my condition and gave me a clearance. But the EHC said that I should repeat my cbc after 1 month after taking iron supplements prescribed by my hematologist. After 1 month, i visited my hematologist and she is quite shocked because I am wasn't cleared at this time. She explained to me that nothing will change, I will be anemic forever. So she is wndering why the EHC requested for another cbc knowing that my hemoglobin will be forever low. Huhuhuhu. I am taking folic acid as my maintenance. Then I went to EHC and passed my latest cbc. they told me that the head will have her final evaluation on my case. I called the HR and asked for the results, they told me to wait for a call or text. Dunno what to do next :/ I spent almost 10k (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
