'Hold instructor of student nurse in rectum scandal accountable'

From ABS-CBN, more on the scandal reported on this site previously:

The chair of the Technical Committee on Nursing Education of Commission on Higher Education (CHED) suggested to revoke the license of the Clinical Instructor (CI) of the student nurse who took a cell phone video of the rectum operation in Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) in Cebu.

ABS-CBN Regional Network said Dr. Maria Teresita Cinda, the chairwoman of Technical Committee on Nursing Education of CHED, condemned the acts of the CI.

“The CI should look after his students inside the operating room,” said Cinda, who is also a dean of the College of Nursing in Silliman University.

She said that the CI is responsible for the acts of his students in any clinical area in the hospital. It is the CI’s license which is on the line in case students make mistakes.
