Nursing Association, filled with gaps in majors, pushed out for illegal medical practice

Received 134 reports of difficulties faced by nurses in the medical field

Vacancies in specialization, burden on the medical staff left behind

Vacancies in specialization, burden on the medical staff left behind

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Jan-di = As the medical field continues to experience work vacancies due to the mass resignation of medical residents, nurses are taking over the work of interns and residents.

Nurses are experiencing a ‘double whammy’ as they not only have a heavy workload, but are also forced into illegal medical practices such as being instructed to perform drug injector procedures that doctors must perform, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)) for cardiac arrest patients, and drug prescriptions.

According to the Korean Nurses Association, as of 6 p.m. on the 22nd, a total of 134 reports were received at the ‘Field Nurse Difficulty Reporting Center’ operated by the association.

As residents stopped working at 6 a.m. on the 20th, the Livestock Association has been accepting complaints from field nurses regarding medical vacancies due to residents submitting resignation letters on the website from 6 p.m. on the same day.

The association reported that there were many reports from general nurses as well as medical assistant (PA) nurses who shared the doctor’s duties.

In a reported case, one hospital even gave instructions to nurses to insert and remove Chemoport injections for cancer patients, as well as administer blood transfusions and prescribe drugs using the professor’s ID.

Chemoport is an implantable drug delivery device that is inserted into a patient’s vein to inject anticancer drugs, contrast agents, etc. Insertion and removal procedures are medical procedures that must be performed by a doctor. Medication prescriptions must also be prescribed by a doctor.

If a CPR situation occurs in the ward, a nurse will compress the patient’s chest and notify the patient to hold on until the doctor arrives.

Another hospital entrusted nurses with the task of explaining surgery and writing consent forms from patients.

This nurse, who reported to the Liver Association, said, “The PA nurse explained the surgery, etc., and the doctor said he would just sign it later,” and “I ended up writing medical records, making prescriptions, and removing catheters, which were done by residents.”

Nurses are seriously concerned about being pushed into illegal medical practices, even though it is inevitable that they will have to work harder to minimize disruption to medical care.

The association plans to hold a press conference at the Korean Nurses Association Seoul Training Center on the 23rd to inform the public of the reality of nurses exposed to illegal medical practices due to group action by doctors.
