70%-80% of Staff in Tan Tock Seng Hospital are Filipino

Postby Barnsley » Wed, 07 Jan 2015 5:32 pm

I just read this stat on Asia One in one of their forums....

Does this actually surprise anyone?

Nursing/Patient care below Doctor level doesn't strike me as career path being touted as one to follow for Singaporeans.

I have no idea what the pay levels are but I imagine that the pay is around SPASS/WP level which wouldnt strike me as an incentive to the folks you would want to be going into nursing.

This is on the back of the latest Witch Hunt against someone posting on Facebook , it turned out the guy posting the idiotic comments worked at TTSH
Life is short, paddle harder!!

The most surprising thing is that you read this "stat" in a forum on AsiaOne and just took it at face value.

- 70-80% of all stats posted on the Internet are made up on the fly.
- 99.8% of all words posted in AsiaOne forums are utterly worthly drivel.

^- One of the two bullet points above is actually factual :D

anyway, the 70-80% was just some pot stirring

From TTSH !

We would also like to clarify that a quarter of our staff are foreigners, contrary to the inaccurate report by Shin Min Daily News on 5 January 2015.
