Disruption of normal medical treatment due to gap in residency

Disruption of normal medical treatment due to gap in residency

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Seo Seong-ho = The Korean General Hospital Association said on the 23rd, “We hope that patients will find a local general hospital that can provide normal treatment regardless of the medical crisis caused by collective action by residents.”

The General Hospital Council issued a statement on this day, saying, “There are serious concerns about additional damage as patients continue to visit tertiary general hospitals and university hospitals despite the medical crisis.”

The council explained, “The majority of local general hospitals that are secondary hospitals are 100% operated by specialists, so normal medical treatment is possible regardless of the current medical crisis, and they are equipped with facilities and equipment at the level of university hospitals.”

“Currently, local general hospitals are doing their best to manage surgical patients and critically ill patients in preparation for additional situations,” he said. “We have an emergency room open 24 hours a day and a dialysis room that can sufficiently accommodate local patients, so we will fill the gap in medical care at university hospitals.” “I am confident that I can do it.”

The council also emphasized, “There are currently enough inpatient beds for intensive care units and convalescent patients,” and added, “General hospitals are already building infrastructure at the level of tertiary hospitals, so we hope patients will visit us without worrying.”

As concerns over patient damage grew as residents continued to submit resignation letters, the government raised the health care disaster alert level from ‘alert’ to the highest level, ‘serious’, as of 8 a.m. on this day.

This is the first time that the disaster warning has been raised to ‘severe’ due to a health care crisis rather than an infectious disease such as COVID-19.
