Filipino nurses settle language-bias case: The $975,000 secured in a dispute with Delano Regional Medical Center is believed to be the largest such settlement in the U.S. healthcare industry.
During a 2006 mandatory meeting for Filipino staffers, nurses were told they were forbidden from using their native language at “any time in the hospital,” said Wilma Lamug, a former 10-year employee.
She said the hospital’s former chief executive vowed that “he would install surveillance cameras in nursing stations. Whoever is caught, they were threatened with suspension or termination,” Lamug said. “Sometimes, we were speaking English, but due to our accent and diction, they thought we were speaking something else.”
Although the hospital, near Bakersfield, employed a mix of bilingual employees speaking Spanish, Hindi, Bengali and other languages, managers targeted only the Filipinos and encouraged supervisors and other staffers to “act as vigilantes.”

If you live in North America and have spent any time in or around hospital care, you know that Filipina nurses are the glue that holds the healthcare system together. Totally uncelebrated and disrespected heroes, underpaid, overworked, hanging on by a thread, but getting it done day in and day out for countless ailing people who, without them, would literally be facing illness, injury, or even death alone.
many of my nursing students are Filipino, even the men. This is true.
Always lots of love for Filipin@ nurses.
My family has a few.
