Emergency room patient treatment restrictions notice

(Cheongju = Larose.VIP) Reporters Cheon Gyeong-hwan and Lee Seong-min = The aftermath of the collective action of medical residents (interns and residents) protesting against the government’s policy to increase the number of medical schools has continued for four days in the North Chungcheong region.

Chungbuk National University Hospital, the only general hospital in the province, announced on the 23rd that 122 out of 137 residents submitted their resignations and are not coming to work.

As of the previous day, 123 people had left, but it was reported that one of them returned that day.

As 90% of medical residents take collective action, confusion in the medical field is growing.

Chungbuk National University Hospital’s emergency room was initially operated with one specialist and seven residents on duty, but after the residents left the hospital, the remaining seven specialists (excluding emergency pediatrics) are on duty once every three days. .

There are no residents in the treatment unit that intensively treats high-risk mothers and newborns, so four specialists are operating the intensive care unit by working overnight shifts.

In addition, 35 interns who graduated from medical school and will join the hospital on March 1st submitted employment waiver forms to the hospital.

If 23 residents scheduled to complete residency and 10 full-time doctors whose employment contracts have ended leave the hospital at the end of this month, a serious medical disruption seems inevitable.

An official at Chungbuk National University Hospital said, “We are minimizing the gap in treatment by reducing the operation rate of hospitalized beds from 75% to 55%,” and added, “We have not yet reached a serious situation where we cannot receive emergency patients, but if collective action continues for a long time, overload is bound to occur.” “He reported the situation.

In addition to Chungbuk National University Hospital, it was reported that the majority of residents at 8 out of 10 teaching hospitals in the province, including Cheongju St. Mary’s Hospital, did not come to work that day.

As the health and medical disaster alert level has been raised to ‘serious’, the highest level of crisis, the province plans to monitor the trend and increase treatment hours on weekdays at public hospitals, Cheongju and Chungju Medical Center, and allow treatment to be provided on holidays as well.
