Cebu Hospital Scandal

April 18, 2008

Its all over the news.. I’m sure you’ve heard and read about it by now.

Doctors and nurses at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) in Cebu City in Cebu city are in hot water after filming and taking pictures of a medical operation being done on a patient who had a cologne canister inside his ass.

Ok, here’s how i see it… he’s gay.. and instead of buying a dildo, he opted to use what’s available (very resourceful i must say…). he went to Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC), asked the doctors to pull it out. Now these doctors and nurses were soooooooo excited about this operation that they had to film the activities and take picture.. You’ll see later in the video that one of those involved even placed hi cellphone above the anus where the operation is being done.

I’m sure you wanna see the video… watch it after the break.


The video is now made private:

This is a private video. If you have been sent this video, please make sure you accept the sender’s friend request.

But its still in youtube. just search for it.

It was like everybody was watching a spectacle.. Are they really doctors and nurses? Or maybe they thought it was a guiness world record or believe it or not thingi..

“Bibi out”.. “bibi out”…. The one pulling was doing it slowly.. it was like he was building excitement… and when it’s finally out, it was like a commercial endorsement of some sort – look at the hand gesture… And that’s not all… he had to open the can and spray it in the air. How sanitary could that be? He waved it so that everybody could see. He was so proud of what has been done…

Their argument (errr. palusot) that they were just jeering that the operation was finally over. Yeah right.

And it didn’t stop there.. They had to really announce to the whole world the brand of the cologne/body spray.



If i was the patient… i’d be furiously mad.

A lot of people are calling for a boycott on Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC). Hey after seeing this, who would want to go to that hospital.. a place where they film operations and make fun of it. A place where a patient’s right to privacy is exposed and violated.

Again, are those really doctors and nurses? Is Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) employing phonies? Coz i’ve been hearing of medical malpractice.. but this one… bad behavior? I don;t know.. you tell me.

And to think we were super insulted by what Terri Hathcer did when she insulted pinoy doctors and nurses in her infamous line: “Okay, before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? Coz I would just like to make sure they are not from some med school in the Philippines.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video:

I think the line should have been ” Okay, before we go any further, can I check your records? Coz I would just like to make sure that you did not come from Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC).

If this incident happened here in Davao, i’m sure mayor Duterte will be on top of this. And We’ll also be sure that those demonoids who did this will not go unpunished.

Oh, have you read the news about another case at this hospital? Ronalyn Caballes, the patient, is accusing Jeffry Polancos, Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) property custodian, of asking her to have sex with him in exchange for the release of a document. read it here. But again, this is just an accusation.

I did some news digging and i found out that this hospital is somewhat popular… popular in incidents and anomalies

  • Fisherman takes son as hostage
  • CEBU CITY–The Commission on Audit found that the P3 million medical aid fund from the pork barrel of Cebu City Rep. Antonio Cuenco at the government-run Don Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (DVMMC) has been misused.The COA auditor assigned at the hospital reported that Cuenco’s Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), or pork barrel, worth P3,290,083.29, went instead to ghost purchases of medicines. – source

    First of all, I tried youtube and the video was no lnger there. How about that? Somebody high up must’ve complained to youtube about this.
    Second, this reminds me of the “alleged” gerbil being taken out of acotr Richard Gere’s anus in a L.A. hospital. This was neither confirmed or denied. I just wished any of the doctors or nurses present had a cell phone camera handy.
    And thirdly, the doctors and nurses present were probably aghast at what they were witnessing, saying to themselves “nobody is going to believe me….”and miraculously, somebody whipped out a cellphone camera. Modern technology can be a blessing or a curse. Take your pick.
    I feel sorry for the patient, as his privacy had been violated.
    At the same token, I feel forry for the staff, as they didn’t even get compensation from any of the tabloids. Maybe the video had been copied and still out there!

    Fact: It was indeed in VSMMC (Cebu City). You can still watch videos on youtube of the management having a press conference apologizing for the actions of the staff.
    Re: gerbil from Richard Gere’s anus – neither fact or fiction. But it made the rounds on the internet, esp. and
    Why punish the doctors or nurses? They were able to remove the canister out of the guy’s rectum, right? At best, suspension w/o pay should be justified. Who’ll be left at the emergency ward if they fire the staff? And if the emergency staff was vacant and a life or death situation should occur? Who are they going to call? Most of their doctors & nurses have left to work overseas!!!

    Why all the fuss about a guy’s anus? There must’ve been similar (and other foreign objects) extracted from gay guys’ anuses!
    Would you rather that it circulates around w/o any proof?
    This is like discovering that UFOs really exist and you have the movie recording to prove it!!
    And these spoilsports have to come in and spoil all the fun. Not fair!!!

    They film all kinds of surgeries nowadays. What’ wrong with filming a canister being extracted out of a man’s rectum? I’d rather watch that than watch hemorrhoids being operated on.
    And how could the patient be embarassed? They were only filming his rectum, and not his face, right?
    I wonder if they waived the fee for his surgery.

    Please upload the VSMMC video to you tube again.

  7. April 21, 2008 5:54 pm

    I think the reason why the person who uploaded the video to YouTube, REMOVED it because he realized his MISTAKES. That’s a good sign. Uploading it AGAIN, just add another INSULT to already injured individuals. Let us remember that the patient in NOT the only victim. It is NOT only VSMMC that is affected. If we condemn the brutal acts of a surgical team in VSMMC, let us also be better than the team by remaining calm and reasonable with comments, and airing of disappointments.

    My best friend is a nurse, i really asked her isn’t part of your oath taking is to respect privacy and confidentiality of your patient? isn’t it part of your code of conduct and the ethics of your profession? i don’t really have much idea on the medical profession on what are there rules and what they are oath to be but we all know in every job, profession or whatever company we are into, there is always rules to be followed. And confidentiality and privacy is the most important one for a customer to trust the compay.
    Even if its your personal life your most cared and valued thing is your privacy. I hope they realize how important it is to respect ones individuality and privacy….

    I’ve just recently seen the full video of such act and can’t help but feel bad and somehow hate being a filipino. what were thye thinking. I believe these people concerned should really be severely punished. Given what the patent did, as doctors who had taken oath, it was beyond what people could expect of a doctor. Teachers like me have to take our oath seriously. in cases we violate rules, our licenses would be revoked. I firmly believe they should undergo serious punishment for this mishap. this act somehow put the doctors abroad gaining respect to shame.. tsk tsk tsk
