ACTING Provincial Administrator Leonardo Eusebio said Tuesday that the Provincial Government has started paying the salaries of job order (JOs) employees in Provincial Government-run hospitals.
He said he already signed vouchers for the payrolls, but he cannot determine yet the exact number of those who are already paid.
Chiefs of hospitals were directed to submit a list of their JO workers which will be submitted for review by the Human Resource Management Office, he said.
Eusebio said he expects that the number of JO workers assigned in district hospitals will decrease after the evaluation is conducted. The JOs include nurses, medical technicians, clerks, among others.
“Each hospital was required to submit their individual performance evaluation as well as a report of their needed personnel,” he added.
The hiring of JOs for the hospitals were stopped in May, and the evaluation started in June.
“We will have a result within July,” Eusebio said.
