Provincial Government of La Union Hires Additional Nurses in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic LGU: Provincial Government of La Union.
Healthcare workers who directly work with exposed patients are outnumbered and due to their firsthand exposure, some staff undergo self-quarantine thus reducing their numbers drastically. To address this issue, the Provincial Government of La Union decided to hire ten (10) Project-Based Nurses to render their service starting on April 7, 2020 at Naguilian District Hospital. The said project aims to augment the present under-staffed situation of the Nursing Service Department since 15 employees are on strict home quarantine.
