Vice Minister Park Min-soo briefing

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Byeong-gyu = Second Vice Minister of Health and Welfare Park Min-soo announced on the 19th that measures such as maintaining a 24-hour system in the emergency room and dispersing mild patients are being implemented in preparation for collective action in the medical community, including medical residents.

Deputy Minister Park appeared on KBS radio’s ‘Jeon Jong-cheol’s Shocking Current Affairs’ on this day and said, “We have taken measures for all 406 emergency centers to ensure that the emergency room maintains a 24-hour system,” and added, “If residents at the Big 5 hospitals in the metropolitan area leave at once, problems will arise.” “We are helping to deploy personnel so that hospital functions can be shifted to emergency-oriented,” he said.

At the same time, he said, “Regulations related to hospitals will also be lifted temporarily to make manpower management flexible,” and “If the collective action is prolonged, we will be able to bring in the necessary manpower from outside, expand non-face-to-face treatment, and utilize PA nurses.” “We will review it. We will discuss with the Korean Nurses Association to come up with measures regarding concerns that work will be concentrated on nurses,” he said.

He also added, “We plan to strengthen the linkage (between hospitals) so that patients with mild symptoms can go to partner hospitals and adjust related fees to support this cooperation.”

Regarding the appeal and medical director of Severance Hospital, who recently received attention by resigning saying, “I will go to aesthetic medicine,” Vice Minister Park said, “The cosmetic surgery market is highly profitable and work-life balance is guaranteed, so essential medical personnel are unable to endure and are leaving.” “The four major policy packages aim to correct the imbalance problem,” he emphasized.

He continued, “The medical community is calling for the package to be completely abolished, but in fact, at the time of the announcement, an official message was issued saying that it was welcomed,” and criticized, “It was discussed at the 28th medical issue consultative body, and the call to abolish it is excessive.”

Vice Minister Park said to residents who are moving to collectively resign, “If the licenses of many personnel in the medical system are revoked, problems will arise in the medical system and personal losses will be severe. Please do not actually leave patients behind.” “From the perspective of enforcing the law, if such a reality arises, we have no choice but to follow the principles,” he emphasized again.

Regarding the possibility of dialogue with medical groups, he said, “A broadcasting company is preparing a TV debate between the Korean Medical Association and the Ministry of Health and Welfare, but the Korean Medical Association has not decided who will appear. I told the Korean Medical Association that it is okay to have a TV debate in any way and at any time.” “Many people are making efforts to mediate. I hope we can have an honest conversation,” he said.

Will the medical gap become a reality due to the warning of collective action by medical residents?
