(Daegu = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Seon-hyung and Hwang Soo-bin = Medical vacancies in the emergency room are becoming a reality as residents at top general hospitals in the Daegu region submit their resignations.

According to the Daegu medical community on the 19th, the number of residents who submitted resignation letters on this day was 179 at Kyungpook National University Hospital main hospital (41 interns, 138 residents), 65 at Yeungnam University Medical Center (42 interns, 23 residents), and 83 at Daegu Catholic University Hospital (21 interns). , 62 residents), and 21 people (10 interns and 11 residents) at Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital and Seongseo Dongsan Hospital.

The figures were reported by each tertiary general hospital to the Ministry of Health and Welfare between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and the medical community predicted that additional residents participated in the collective action.

Doctor, where are you going?

Due to the departure of a group of residents, Kyungpook National University Hospital began an ‘internal crackdown’ on nurses and other staff.

On this day, Kyungpook National University Hospital disseminated instructions to refrain from using the unofficial term ‘strike’ when responding to customers via text or phone regarding collective action by residents, and to use the term ‘department situation’ or ‘shortage of medical staff’ instead.

An official at Kyungpook National University Hospital said, “Since there is no right to strike, instructions were given to respond not because of a strike, but as ‘we cannot accommodate all patients due to a shortage of doctors.'”

From the first day of collective action, the emergency room was on alert.

Unlike usual, the general situation board of the central emergency medical center of each tertiary general hospital was filled with messages such as ‘severe emergency disease treatment unavailable’ and ‘emergency room messages’.

Detailed information mainly included messages such as ‘lack of medical staff’, ’emergency orthopedic treatment impossible’, ‘unable to accommodate patients other than surgical follow-up’, and ‘unable to accommodate patients other than follow-up’.

A medical official at a university hospital said, “The fact that the emergency room will not accept patients other than follow-up (F/U) patients means that it will only accept patients with high blood pressure or cancer who are already taking medication.” He added, “Because there are not enough hands, virtually all patients are being treated.” “It means that emergency patients will not be accepted.”

Outpatient treatment was also not spared the impact, as residents in charge of collaborative treatment were absent and cases of waiting for treatment continued.

The medical community predicted that if the strong-on-strong standoff between the government and doctors continues like this, the next two weeks will be a watershed.

An official from the Daegu City Medical Association said, “University professors and specialists are preventing the departure of residents from high-level hospitals,” and added, “I understand that the medical system will collapse in the next two weeks at this rate.”
