Requesting data on daily working conditions from teaching hospitals… “The order remains in effect even after return.”

Failure to comply with the reinstatement order can range from suspension of qualifications to license revocation… Emphasis on “mechanical law enforcement”

‘Increasing the number of medical schools’ Growing conflict between government and medical community

‘Increasing the number of medical schools’ Growing conflict between government and medical community

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Byeong-gyu = It was confirmed that the government, which had ordered a large number of residents who left hospitals after submitting resignation letters to resume work (return to work), ordered each training hospital to report the residents’ work status every day.

This is to prevent the practice of returning to work after an order to start work and then not working again, and the government reiterated its position that it will take legal action if the order to start work is violated.

According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the medical community on the 18th, the Ministry of Health and Welfare recently issued an order requesting major teaching hospitals to submit data once a day to determine whether residents are resigning, taking annual leave, or leaving work.

An official from the Ministry of Health and Welfare explained, “This is to prevent residents from taking collective action by leaving their workplace after returning from work after receiving an order to begin work,” adding, “The subjects of the data submission order are most training hospitals, except for a few.”

The Ministry of Health and Welfare found that 235 residents submitted resignation letters as of 6 p.m. on the 16th, and issued an order to resume work for 103 residents who were not actually working.

Article 59 of the Medical Service Act stipulates that if the Minister of Health and Welfare and the provincial governors have reasonable grounds to believe that a medical professional suspends treatment without justifiable cause or that a medical institution founder temporarily closes or closes business en masse, causing or is likely to cause a significant disruption to patient care, ‘commencement of business’. It allows you to command.

Of the 103 people who received orders to return to work, 100 returned, but the return of 3 was not confirmed.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare believed that these three people had no intention of returning and received a ‘certificate of non-compliance with the order to resume work’ from the training department of the hospital to which they belonged. As stipulated by law, these people may be subject to suspension of qualifications for up to one year, imprisonment for up to three years, or a fine of up to 30 million won. If you are sentenced to imprisonment or higher in the first trial due to a complaint for not complying with an order, your license may be revoked.

An official from the Ministry of Health and Welfare said, “In a similar case in 2020, the order to return to work was only notified to the head of the training department, but this time, the order was delivered in three ways, including text, mail, and notification to the head of the training department.” He added, “As a result of internal and external legal reviews, the effect of delivery was sufficient. “I believe there is,” he explained.

In 2020, the government set a deadline for individual orders and allowed them to return, but this time, they allowed them to return immediately. In the case of workers in intensive care units, it is not known what kind of situation may occur even if they leave their work hours even for a short period of time, and it is judged that giving them time to return is not appropriate for the characteristics of hospital work.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare believes that the order is largely effective as most of those subject to the return to work order have returned. However, in order to prevent ‘false return’ by leaving the work place again after returning, this time it has requested hospitals to submit data and carefully examined the work status of residents. I decided to take a look.

According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the effect of a return to work order once issued remains even after the subject returns to work. Therefore, if the employee leaves the workplace again after returning to work, the existing order is judged to have been violated even without an additional return to work order.

The government is emphasizing strict punishment for those who fail to comply with the order to commence work.

Park Min-soo, the second vice minister of the Ministry of Health and Welfare, said in a briefing on the 16th, “If the 10 people did not follow the order to resume work after resigning, punishment will be imposed on all 10 people. The law will be enforced very mechanically.”

An official from the Ministry of Health and Welfare once again emphasized, “We will not immediately take action just because the return-to-work order has not been confirmed, but mechanical enforcement of the law will be carried out without exception for those who fail to comply.”
