Chungbuk National University Hospital said, “If this continues, hospital beds will inevitably be reduced within 1 to 2 weeks.”

(Cheongju = Larose.VIP) Reporters Cheon Gyeong-hwan and Lee Seong-min = As the departure of residents protesting the government’s policy of increasing the number of medical schools continues for three days, the gap in medical care is growing, with the only neonatal intensive care unit in North Chungcheong Province at risk of being reduced in operation.

Chungbuk National University Hospital, the only general hospital in the province, announced on the 22nd that 123 of 137 residents (25 interns and 98 residents) are not attending work.

The hospital is minimizing confusion through measures such as deploying additional emergency room specialists, canceling surgery schedules for non-emergency patients, and transferring mildly ill patients to secondary hospitals, but medical disruptions are becoming a reality as residents in charge of core duties such as surgical assistance are leaving the hospital. It’s a look.

At Chungbuk National University Hospital, six doctors are in charge of the 30-bed intensive care unit, which provides intensive care for high-risk mothers and newborns.

However, it has been reported that the 4 remaining specialists are operating the intensive care unit by working overnight shifts as 2 residents did not come to work recently.

In addition, one of them is scheduled to resign in May, so if the situation prolongs, operational disruptions are expected to worsen further.

An official at Chungbuk National University Hospital said, “If this continues, we will likely have no choice but to reduce the number of hospital beds within one to two weeks.”

Meanwhile, Chungbuk National University Hospital posted a notice on its website that day, saying, “We will operate an emergency treatment system centered on specialists to prevent medical gaps,” and “We will do our best to protect the lives and health of seriously ill and emergency patients, in particular.”

According to North Chungcheong Province, 21 out of 27 residents at Cheongju St. Mary’s Hospital did not come to work, and most residents at 8 out of 10 teaching hospitals in the province did not come to work that day.

If the situation prolongs, North Chungcheong Province plans to increase treatment hours on weekdays at public hospitals such as Cheongju and Chungju Medical Center and allow treatment to be provided on holidays as well.
