MANILA, Philippines – Election Commission (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon on Monday announced that she would order the camp of presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to present a notarized medical certificate after the former senator ignored the electoral body’s hearing on his disqualification cases.

“I’ll order the doctor and Atty. [Vic] Rodriguez to justify or demand that his doctor have his medical certificate legalized, ”Guanzon said in a tweet on Monday.

Rodriguez is Marcos’ chief of staff and spokesperson.

On January 7, Comelec’s preliminary conference on Marcos’ disqualification cases was delayed by an hour while the electoral body awaited his medical certificate to justify his absence from the hearing.

His camp eventually presented a medical certificate stating that the former senator needed rest due to “difficulty speaking and a painfully congested throat.”

However, it later turned out that Marcos was doing well enough that he was able to virtually attend a radio interview to talk about his platforms on the afternoon of January 6, a day before the preliminary conference.

According to Rodriguez, Marcos was already feeling bad on January 6, but he chose to conduct a scheduled interview.

But Guazon seems to have misgivings.

“Now I have to demand that the doctor who examined Marcos Jr. have his medical certificate.[ificate] notarized and indicate his medical license number, ”Guanzon said in another tweet.

The presidential aspiring camp had clarified that Marcos had only been ordered to isolate himself on the morning of the preliminary conference on January 7.

Most primary school students who are exempt from wearing a face mask at school will not need a medical certificate, according to the Irish National Teachers’ Organization (INTO).

he question of exemptions from the new face covering rule applicable to pupils from the third grade on was one of the key subjects discussed with the Ministry of Education by the representative bodies of the schools.

In a subsequent notice to members, INTO noted the medical exemptions that will apply, but added that “the vast majority of exempt children will not need a medical certificate to receive an exemption from wearing a blanket. face”.

Principals were concerned about the potential for confusion and confrontation when an exemption is sought without certification, while a number of general practitioners also spoke about their ability to provide certification to children in light of their experience. current workload.

After the new policy was introduced overnight, school representative bodies were inundated with appeals and sought and received clarification from the ministry on a number of issues.

However, principals are still waiting for advice on what to do if they encounter a widespread refusal from a parent to allow their child to wear a mask at school.

The Taoiseach Micheál Martin said in the Dáil that teachers, directors and boards of directors that administered public health policy would be protected by law.

While the mask-wearing policy takes immediate effect, INTO said it was recognized that schools “will take a hands-on approach in the following days to communicate the new measures to parents.”

On whether it is mandatory for a child to wear a face covering, INTO said that while the guidelines are not statutory, it was “unequivocally clear that this is a requirement for all. students “.

INTO has informed members of the medical exemptions that will apply, but added that “the vast majority of exempt children will not need a medical certificate to receive an exemption from wearing a face covering.”

He cited official guidelines that schools “know the needs of their students and are in a good position to identify children whose complex needs mean that wearing a face covering may not be possible and to discuss this with parents if. necessary “.

“In such circumstances, a school will not require a medical certificate to grant an exemption from wearing face coverings,” he said.

When a student refuses to wear a mask, schools are asked to engage with the student and explain the requirements for the use of face covers and also to engage with parents / guardians of the child.

Further guidance is sought as to the appropriate process / procedure in the event of a continued refusal to cooperate, according to INTO.

Regarding the wearing of masks during breaks, the union said “a common sense approach should apply” and that removing face coverings for brief periods was allowed.

Masks can also be removed for play time in the yard and for physical education and other sporting activities, with the advice that these activities should take place, whenever possible, outdoors.

Removal of face covers is also allowed for musical activities, such as singing, choir, and playing instruments, but a hands-on approach is advised, such as consideration of space and ventilation.

Supreme Court: medical certificate of injuries declared inadmissible in criminal assault case https://reliablemedicalstaffing.com/supreme-court-medical-certificate-of-injuries-declared-inadmissible-in-criminal-assault-case/ https://reliablemedicalstaffing.com/supreme-court-medical-certificate-of-injuries-declared-inadmissible-in-criminal-assault-case/#respond Fri, 05 Nov 2021 10:37:13 +0000 https://reliablemedicalstaffing.com/supreme-court-medical-certificate-of-injuries-declared-inadmissible-in-criminal-assault-case/ The Supreme Court ruled that a medical certificate of injuries allegedly suffered by an assault victim was inadmissible evidence because the certifying doctor failed to examine the victim. About this case: Quote: [2021] IESC 74 Judgement: To research: Supreme Court Judge: Mr. Justice Seamus Woulfe It was held that section 25 of the Non-Fatal State […]]]>

The Supreme Court ruled that a medical certificate of injuries allegedly suffered by an assault victim was inadmissible evidence because the certifying doctor failed to examine the victim.

It was held that section 25 of the Non-Fatal State Offenses Act, 1997 required that a doctor issuing a certificate had personally examined the victim.

The DPP had argued that the provision made no specific reference to an attending physician and, in addition, that several medical staff would attend to an injured person in a given case. However, the court rejected it, saying the certificate was intended to replace verbally examination, so that a doctor should have personal experience of the case.

Background

The accused (known as AC) was tried by the Circuit Criminal Court in 2018 on one count of assault causing damage and one count of assault causing serious harm. It was alleged that the accused hit the victim in the head / face with a bar stool. As a result, the victim suffered a serious eye injury.

At trial, the prosecution sought to produce proof of a certificate issued by a consultant ophthalmic surgeon in accordance with the provisions of the 1997 law. Section 25 provided that such a certificate could be produced as evidence concerning the injuries of the victim. Such a provision prevents a medical expert from appearing in court to prove a victim’s injuries.

However, the defendant objected to the medical certificate which dealt with the count of assault causing serious harm. It was argued that the medical expert had not personally examined the victim and that his certificate was based on clinical notes collected from other doctors on the dates in question.

It was said that a section 25 certificate required the certifying physician to personally examine the victim in order for the evidence to be admissible. The Circuit Court judge reviewed the legislation and refused to admit the certificate. It was said that the wording of section 25 was clear and that only a doctor who examined the victim could issue the certificate. As such, the court returned a verdict of not guilty on the second count.

The matter was remitted to the Court of Appeal by way of stated case. The specific question posed was whether the trial judge was correct in his interpretation of section 25.

The Court of Appeal reversed the decision, stating that there was no provision in the law that the certificate had to be issued by an attending physician. The court ruled that the section was unqualified and this was not surprising given that a large number of medical staff can treat a patient and take notes.

The decision was appealed by the defendant to the Supreme Court.

Supreme Court

In rendering the principal judgment in the case, Judge Seamus Wolfe began by noting that the Court of Appeal adopted a literal interpretation of the legislation. However, it was said that the Court of Appeal failed to consider the inherent nature of the certificates and their admissibility as evidence under section 25.

A certificate was held to be an official documentary statement of the truth or facts. From the present certificate, it was clear that the doctor had only examined the clinical notes of other treating doctors and had not taken care of the victim himself. Under these circumstances, the court asked how the doctor was able to ascertain the victim’s injuries in fact.

The court ruled that section 25 was ambiguous and that there was “considerable doubt as to the scope of the intended application of the provision”, as evidenced by the difference of judicial opinion. Applying section 5 of the Interpretation Act 2005, the court said that the Oireachtas’ obvious intention was “to avoid the need for doctors to come to court and testify orally to prove their own medical records which in most cases are likely to be routine and non-controversial in nature ”.

As such, the court concluded that the trial judge was correct in excluding the certificate from the evidence. Chief Justice Donal O’Donnell wrote a concurring judgment, saying he had “considerable difficulty” with the idea that an independent practitioner could certify a victim’s injuries without examination.

Justice O’Donnell said the purpose of the legislation was to allow a doctor to replace verbally proof with the certificate and nothing in the legislation suggested any other purpose beyond this. The Chief Justice noted that if the doctor was required to appear in person, he could not have testified based on someone else’s notes.

Furthermore, it was “inconceivable” that the Oireachtas did not place limits on such a broad certifying power where any doctor could technically certify any examination. Finally, the fact that the certificate was evidence, and did not lend itself to cross-examination, also required a narrow interpretation of the provision.

Although not the subject of the appeal, Justice O’Donnell also considered the point of disagreement between Justice Woulfe and Justice Peter Charleton as to whether a certificate could express an opinion on the nature of the damage suffered by the injured party. This occurred in a context where the certificate stated that the victim had suffered “probably permanent long-term damage”.

It has been said that a review can involve an element of both opinion and experience. However, the fact that a certificate could not be challenged as evidence meant that it had to be limited to essential factual elements. The certificate had to contain enough detail for the jury members to understand. Justice O’Donnell agreed with Justice Woulfe that a statement of the seriousness of the harm was an opinion which was not capable of being certified.

Conclusion

The court allowed the appeal and upheld the trial judge’s decision to exclude the certificate.

Australia: It depends – Do I need a medical certificate to start acting as a lawyer?

To print this article, simply register or connect to Mondaq.com.

In this edition of “It Depends,” lawyer Katelyn Gillert explains whether you need to have a medical certificate before you can start acting as someone’s lawyer.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to it depends. Today we are going to discuss the need to have a medical certificate before you can start to act as someone’s lawyer.

What is a continuing power of attorney?

A continuing power of attorney is a legal document that allows a person, called a “principal” to allow someone else to make decisions on their behalf. A continuing power of attorney will continue even after they have lost their capacity and when they can no longer instruct their lawyers.

What kinds of decisions can I make as a lawyer?

A lawyer can be appointed to make financial, personal or health decisions, or both. The principal can appoint the same lawyers to make decisions about financial, personal, and health matters, or they can appoint different lawyers to make decisions on different issues. Financial matters will include decisions about how income is invested, whether to sell assets, pay off debts, or pay accommodation or maintenance costs for the principal. Personal and health matters will include decisions about day-to-day living, where the principal lives and with whom he or she lives, day-to-day decisions such as clothing and feeding, as well as the consent or denial of a medical treatment and survival procedures.

When can I start making decisions as a lawyer?

It depends and it depends on the type of subject on which you are making a decision. The principal can specify that a lawyer in financial matters can only start making decisions once he has lost his capacity, immediately, so when the document is signed, or on another occasion or date that the principal specifies. . For personal and health matters, a lawyer can only start making decisions after the principal has lost the ability to make decisions for himself.

Do I need a medical certificate before I can take action?

Again, it depends. And it would depend on what issue you were making a decision on and also what the terms of the enduring power of attorney document say. You will need a medical certificate confirming that the director has lost the ability to make decisions on his own if you are making decisions for personal or health matters or if you are making decisions for financial matters and the director specified in a document that your powers do not begin until they have lost some of their capacity. Mainly, it means that you cannot make decisions about it until you have a medical certificate. You should also read the enduring power of attorney document carefully to make sure that the principal has not put other requirements in it, such as requiring more than one medical certificate obtained from different doctors.

NAGPUR: No MBBS doctor in the city, it seems, is ready to partner with the Regional Transportation Bureau (RTO) to issue a medical certificate online to applicants for driving licenses.
This year, the transport commissariat made it compulsory for candidates to submit medical fitness certificates online. During the verification of documents by officials of the transport department, especially motor vehicle inspectors and assistant motor vehicle inspectors, it was found that many applicants presented false medical certificates.
Following this, the service decided to recruit only MBBS doctors who will be authorized to issue medical certificates.
Deputy RTO Khanderao Deshmukh, who is currently in charge of the Nagpur City Office, said: “The Department of Transportation has already contacted the Indian Medical Association for this purpose. But we have yet to receive a response from local doctors. ”
According to the decision, doctors wishing to be recruited will have to visit the RTO offices and have their medical qualifications checked. As a result of this, they will be given a login ID to upload the medical certificates to the RTO website.
A few general practitioners have said that uploading certificates takes a long time.

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews / September 15) – Businessman Michael Yang, friend and former economic adviser to President Rodrigo Duterte, was not present at the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee hearing on Monday, September 13, when her doctor advised her to stay in bed for five days. due to a “hypertensive emergency,” Yang’s attorney Raymond Fortun told the committee.

Fortun said the medical certificate was issued by Dr. Jenny A. Adtoon, whom he described as “a doctor here in Davao City”.

Posted on Monday, the medical certificate indicates that Yang, 45, whose address is Ramon Magsaysay Avenue, was seen and diagnosed with “hypertensive emergency” by Adtoon, a general practitioner who passed the doctor’s license exam. two years ago. Adtoon advised Yang to rest for “5 days for the observation and monitoring of BP.”

Fortun did not say where his client was from, but on the way to Island Village 1, Yang “texted me, then called afterwards and told me that his blood pressure had suddenly increased and that for this reason, her doctor advised her to stay home. Apparently, because of the procedure, her health was affected. “

The committee did not ask Fortun where Yang’s “house” is and whether Yang texted him and called him through an interpreter. Yang, who has been in the country since 1999, was accompanied by an interpreter when he appeared before the committee last Friday, translating questions senators asked him into Chinese and translating Yang’s responses to the committee into English.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in the United States, hypertensive urgency is “a marked increase in blood pressure without evidence of damage to target organs, such as pulmonary edema, cardiac ischemia, neurological deficits. or acute renal failure ”.

According to WebMD, hypertensive urgency “occurs when blood pressure rises” with readings “180/110 or higher … but there is no damage to the body’s organs.” Blood pressure “can be safely lowered within hours with blood medication.”

“He cannot be sick forever”

Senator Richard Gordon, chairman of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee, told Fortun that Yang “looked quite healthy” and reminded him that his client was still in contempt and under arrest for contempt for failing to appear earlier despite two subpoenas.

“Blood pressure goes up and down,” Gordon said, vowing not to give Yang a “free pass”. He noted that Yang is in Davao City and “feels comfortable there”.

The Senate investigation continues Friday, September 17 at 10:30 a.m.

After explaining the absence of his client, Fortun told the Senate committee that “his (Yang) doctor’s name is Dr. Jenny A. Adtoon, a doctor here in Davao City. I can send you now his medical certificate duly signed by the doctor.

Adtoon was featured on the city government website on October 9, 2019 for passing the Physician Licensing Exam a month earlier. She was described in the article as a Subanen who was among the first recipients of the medical scholarship offered by the Davao City Government under the Education Benefits System Unit.

Cast of characters

Senator Risa Hontiveros had wanted to continue questioning Yang during Monday’s hearing. She said Yang is “nasa gitna her cast of characters” (central to the cast of characters “and everyone is hoping” that he can help us connect the dots “.

Senatorial Minority Leader Franklin Drilon suggested that the committee ask the Immigration Bureau through the Justice Department to put Yang on the immigration watch list so that “if the witness tries to leave (the country), we will be immediately informed ”.

Yang said during the September 10 hearing that his only connection to Pharmally Pharmaceuticals Corporation introduced his officials to four Chinese suppliers of personal protective equipment (PPE) but had nothing to do with their business dealings with the government. .

The Senate investigation is based on an Audit Commission (COA) report released on August 11, pointing to “deficiencies” in the Ministry of Health’s handling of pandemic funds amounting to $ 67.3 billion. of pesos.

The COA also highlighted the 42.4 billion pesos fund for the purchase of COVID-19 supplies that was transferred to other agencies without a memorandum of understanding. In its August 16 press release, the DOH said the 42.4 billion peso fund had been transferred primarily to PS-DBM and the Philippine International Trading Corp (PITC) and that there was no need an MOA “since the items purchased – PPE, testing kits and other equipment necessary for the response to COVID-19 have been classified as supplies in common use due to the pandemic.”

In defense of Yang

President Duterte has defended Yang for the past two weeks.

In his pre-recorded “Talk to the People” aired on August 31, Duterte dismissed reports of Yang’s alleged involvement in illegal drugs. He said he had no doubts about Yang. “Bakit ako magduda? Bakit ako magsabi na drug baron sya “(Why should I doubt? Why should I say he is a drug lord?), He said, adding that the former Chinese ambassador to the Philippines was still sleeping at Yang’s house in Davao.

Yang’s name was mentioned in a 2019 report from the former chief superintendent. Eduardo Acierto, then OCI of the Philippine National Police’s illegal drugs group, claiming that Yang and a certain Allan Lim were behind a huge shabu lab discovered in Davao City in 2004. This has been denied by palace officials in 2019. Last month Wilkins Villanueva, director general of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, said Yang was not involved in the 2004 operation.

Duterte was mayor of the city of Davao in 2004.

In a speech to the PDP-Laban Cusi faction’s national convention on September 8 in San Fernando, Pampanga, Duterte said Yang was a “lang ‘yan intermediary. A Chinese who does business because we encourage everyone in the world to come to the Philippines and do business. “

“Yang is known to me, I admit it. And it is to Yang that I asked to pose – to do the – to prepare the ground or to take the steps to go to China and to conclude a new agreement and new relations… ”, declared Duterte.

In his “Talk to the People” broadcast on September 11, Duterte said he had known Yang “for 20 years na negosyante ng Davao” whom he ordered to establish contact with the Chinese (in mainland Chian). “Eh siyempre can negosyo, nakikisali, eh negosyante eh. Ano ba magawa mo? (Of course there is business, so he’s been in it, he’s a businessman. What can you do?), he said. (Carolyn O. Arguillas / MindaNews)

The comments of the head of the RACGP according to which pharmacists announce certificates of absence from work “as if it were like toothpaste” are unfounded, according to the leader

Certificates of absence issued by community pharmacists are legitimate and save many Australian workers time and money, says Anthony Tassone, president of the Pharmacy Guild Victoria branch.

Her defense of community pharmacists comes after a 7NEWS segment on the profession’s ability to deliver and advertise the service, in which RACGP President Karen Price raised concerns.

“We don’t want healthcare to be advertised as if it were toothpaste,” Dr Price said.

Mr Tassone said Dr Price’s comments are “unfounded” and “can be mistaken for pharmacies simply trying to advertise the service available to their patients.”

The segment also questioned the legitimacy of certificates provided by pharmacists, with Dr Price saying some companies might not accept certificates from pharmacists.

“Certificates of absence from work issued by community pharmacists save time for many Australian workers and are authorized by the Fair Work Act 2009said Mr. Tassone AJP.

“According to the guidelines, the issuance of a certificate of absence from work must be within the scope of practice of the pharmacist, acting according to his skills and professional expertise.

He said community pharmacists take their responsibilities under the Act seriously.

“Pharmacists should carefully consider whether the illness or injury being certified falls within their recognized area of ​​practice,” he said.

“Certificates document a pharmacist’s professional opinion that a person is, or will be, unfit for work for a period of time due to illness or injury – typically for no more than two days.”

Sarah Stoddart, Director of Vitality Law Australia, said that if the diagnosis of an employee’s particular illness or injury falls within the scope of a pharmacist’s practice, then “there is no reason so that a certificate of absence from work issued by a pharmacist is not sufficient proof of the employee’s illness or injury ”.

While an employer can ask the employee to provide proof that he was unable to work due to illness or injury, “contrary to what has been reported, the Fair labor law does not specify that an employee taking personal leave must provide a medical certificate as proof of the injury or illness affecting their ability to work, ”she said. AJP.

Rather, under the Act, the employee must provide the employer with proof “which would satisfy a reasonable person” that the leave was taken because the employee was unfit for work due to illness or illness. ‘a wound.

“Unless there is a specific provision in an employee’s employment contract which provides that a medical certificate issued by a physician must be provided as proof of the need for an employee to take personal leave – and assuming the disease or injury concerned is within the purview of a pharmacist. practice – an employer would take a significant risk by questioning the production of a certificate of absence from work signed by a pharmacist to prove an employee’s absence from work due to illness or injury ” , said Ms Stoddart.

“The only circumstances in which an employer can refuse to accept a certificate of absence from work signed by a pharmacist is if the employee’s employment contract specifies that a particular type of proof must be produced which does not include a certificate of absence from work signed by a pharmacist, or if the illness or injury in particular exceeds the scope of a pharmacist’s practice.

Mr. Tassone insisted that pharmacists provide a valuable service.

“Recognizing pharmacists as eligible signatories of these certificates saves many Australian workers time and money thanks to the convenient location of pharmacies and accessibility of pharmacists – usually available at short notice. and without an appointment, ”he said.

“Considering the waiting time that may be required for a doctor’s appointment, the fact that workers who are legitimately ill or injured can more easily obtain a certificate of absence from work in a pharmacy is in fact a plus for the company. productivity, not a minus.

“It is important that the public be fully informed of their options in order to make an informed choice regarding access to the care that meets their needs.
