MANILA, Philippines - A hospital staff of St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center in Tanauan, Batangas has earned praises from netizens after helping the family of a poor patient settle hospital bill.

Hospital staff earns praise after helping family of poor patient settle hospital bill

In a viral post by Aiza Montalban, she narrated how the hospital staff named Rhona Laurel Arcillas went out of her way just to assist her sick grandmother.

Arcillas, who works at registration of the said hospital, initially assisted them in her grandmother’s check-up. During the check-up, the doctor instructed Montalban’s grandmother to undergo laboratory tests which cost P1,836. Unfortunately, they only brought P1,500 which was clearly not enough to cover all expenses as they already paid P500 as consultation fee of the doctor and would need transportation fare on their way back to San Pablo City in Laguna.

“P1,500 lang po ang dala naming pera tapos ang bayad namin sa doctor 500 tapos ang laboratory ng lola ko ay 1836 tapos hindi pa po kasama dun yung pamasahe namin kc sa san pablo city pa po kame,” Montalban said.

Seeing Montalban and her grandmother, Arcillas approached them and asked how their check-up was. After learning that they didn’t have enough money to pay for the medical fees, the kindhearted hospital staff suddenly gave them P1,000.

Because of Arcillas’ random act of kindness, Montalban and her grandmother couldn’t help but be moved by her action.

“Hindi kami makapaniwala na may tao pa palng katulad nya todo pasalamat kame sa kaya at sumasaludo kami sa kabutihan nya kc kahit hindi nya kami kilala tinulungan nya kami ng walang alin langan kung masama ba kaming tao. kaya kahit sinabi nya na maliit na bagay lang yung tulong nya samin para samin malaki na yun at hindi kami magsasawang magpasalamat sayo maam rhona,” Montalban wrote.


Arcillas quickly gained online fame after Montalban shared the story on Facebook.

Speaking to Pep.ph, Arcillas explained why she chose to help Montalban’s grandmother she identified as Lola Zanaida.

"Kasi alam ko din po yung pakiramdam na nagigipit dahil nararanasan ko din po yun. Kaya kung meron man po akong maitutulong para po makabawas sa nararamdaman at isipin nila, “ Arciallas said.

“Especially sa kagaya po niya may sakit at matanda na, kaya mas ginusto ko po na tulungan siya... Pera lang naman po yun pwede ko pa pong kitain ulit,” she added.
