(Cheonan, Daejeon = Larose.VIP) Reporters Yoo Eui-ju, Park Joo-young, and Lee Joo-hyung = Residents at university hospitals in Daejeon and Chungnam, who submitted mass resignations in protest against the government’s policy of increasing the number of medical schools, are not returning to work despite the government’s hard-line response policy.

According to Soonchunhyang University Cheonan Hospital on the 22nd, the Ministry of Health and Welfare issued an order to begin work the day before for all 95 residents who submitted their resignation on the 20th.

Of these, 82 did not comply with the order. The remaining 13 people were on overseas business trips, so it was determined that no one had actually returned.

At Dankook University Hospital, 96 of the 102 people who submitted resignation letters were ordered to return to work, but it was found that none of them did so.

In the South Chungcheong region, 72.6% (218 people) of 300 residents at 9 teaching hospitals submitted letters of resignation.

In Daejeon, 81.4% (412 people) of residents (506 people) at five major universities and general hospitals submitted letters of resignation.

These five hospitals are home to 96% of all residents (527) in the city.

The number of residents submitting resignation letters at Chungnam National University Hospital reached 169, a significant increase from the previous day (136).

Large hospitals in Daejeon also announce the resignation of residents one after another.

The number of people who left their workplace at this hospital and were ordered to resume work by the Ministry of Health and Welfare was also added, bringing the total to 122.

Accordingly, an order to resume work was issued to 246 residents in the Daejeon area, including Konyang University Hospital and Daejeon St. Mary’s Hospital, but it is known that most of them did not return.

As residents continue to resign en masse and leave hospitals, cases of canceled surgeries are increasing one after another.

In the case of Daejeon St. Mary’s Hospital, about 30% of regular surgeries were canceled.

The hospital minimized the number of new inpatients and postponed surgery schedules focusing on orthopedic subjects such as artificial joint surgery rather than emergencies.

Chungnam National University Hospital, a tertiary general hospital, is also encouraging patients with mild symptoms to be discharged and operating the operating room for high-severity diseases such as cerebrovascular disease and cancer, operating at a 30% reduced operating room compared to usual.

On this day, in the lobby of Daejeon St. Mary’s Hospital, patients who came to the hospital early waited for their turn to be treated and anxiously watched the news about group action by residents on TV.

An official at a nursing hospital in Daejeon, which transported a resident suffering from a stroke to the hospital, said, “I hurried to take an elderly person because his condition worsened early in the morning. Elderly patients need to go to the emergency room even if their condition worsens slightly, but I am anxious about what will happen if this situation continues. “Do it,” he said.

Residents assist professors in surgeries, make rounds in the ward as attending physicians, and provide prescriptions and treatments. Because of this, a gap in medical services is occurring, especially for surgical and hospitalized patients.

Each hospital is operating a specialist-centered emergency treatment system, but if the situation continues for a long time, difficulties in operating essential medical services are expected.

Daejeon City held a meeting to review measures to prepare for collective action in the medical community this morning, with the mayor of the executive branch and heads of related offices and departments in attendance.

If the National Health and Medical Foundation’s crisis alert is raised to the 4th serious level, a 24-hour emergency treatment system will be established at 9 emergency medical institutions in the area, and treatment hours at 5 public hospitals will be recommended to be expanded. Treatment at public health centers will also be extended.
