Moreno called on patients to show appreciation and gratitude to the health care personnel who serve them in the city-run hospitals, stressing that saying a simple ‘thank you’ is not that difficult.

“Hinihikayat ko ang mga mamamayan ng Maynila na kapag nagustuhan ninyo ang libreng serbisyo sa ospital, wala naman sigurong masama kung magpasalamat tayo. Kahit simpleng ‘thank you lang’ para sa hirap ng ating mga doktor, nurses, at hospital staff,” Moreno said.

Speaking before the doctors, nurses and staff of the city-run public hospitals, Moreno also called the workers to stretch their patience when dealing with patients who come for help, especially since they would tend to be overly irritable because of their plight.

“Mahalin natin ang pagkakataong ipinagkaloob ng Diyos. Saan ka nakakita na may trabaho ka na, tapos akinse at atrenta bumagyo o magkadelubyo, may sahod ka dahil sa pagtulong sa kapwa? Ibinilang na natin ang sarli sa public service kaya harapin natin,” Moreno said.

“We are involved in the business of ‘people helping people’ kaya hinihingi ko ang malawak na pag-iisip ninyo, kaya nga tayo tinawag na ‘professional,” he added.

Moreno, explained that getting sick robs the poor of the chance for basic daily survival so that they get easily ticked off.

“‘Pag ang isang mahirap nagkasakit, dalawa ang tama. Una, puro gastos. Pangalawa, habang nakahirati sa ospital, di sya kumikita.  Kaming mahirap, ang  tanging puhunan namin ay lakas ng katawan at abilidad kaya ang emotional tolerance ng isang maysakit na mahirap, napakababa. Kaya konting kibot, sumasabog,” he added.
