The OFW suspected of sufferingi a stroke is in an emergency room at Eastern Hospital

A Filipina domestic helper is in the emergency room of Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan after collapsing in her employer’s house on Wednesday, Jan 29, following seven days of headache.

Lovella F. Albero, 43 and a married mother of three, is scheduled to undergo an MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, to determine whether she has a brain tumor, her employer Zharina Sunga said.

But Sunga is worried because the medical procedure can’t be done until after two weeks because of the long queue of patients requiring that examination.

Sunga said a doctor friend of hers suspected that Albero might have suffered a stroke due to ruptured brain aneurysm, or a bulging vein in the brain.

He suggested the patient  undergo a lumbar puncture, a procedure that involves drawing fluid specimen from her spinal column.

Albero is conscious but has lost her memory, her employer for five years said. “She doesn’t know where she is, she doesn’t even know me,” Sunga said.


The employer said Albero has a husband and three children who are all in college.

The case of Albero has been relayed to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration office in the Consulate.

Welfare Officer Marivic C. Clarin said she had assured the employer that the hospital is the best place for Albero as medical staff could monitor her condition
