(Busan = Larose.VIP) Reporter Park Seong-je = It was revealed that there were successive delays in transporting emergency patients in the Busan area during the four days following the resident withdrawal incident.

According to the Busan Fire and Disaster Headquarters on the 23rd, from the 20th, when the medical gap began due to the mass resignation of medical residents, to 5 a.m. on this day, there were four cases of delays in transporting emergency patients to hospitals by emergency vehicles.

All emergency vehicles left Busan and moved to hospitals in Jinju, Changwon, Gimhae, and Ulsan in South Gyeongsang Province.

The longest transfer time was about 2 hours.

This patient, who injured his leg in Busanjin-gu, searched for a hospital that could provide treatment and was eventually transferred to a hospital in Changwon.

Currently, it is difficult for the Busan Fire and Disaster Headquarters to find an emergency room that can receive emergency patients compared to usual.

Normally, when transporting an emergency patient, the firefighters in the ambulance and the emergency management center search for an emergency room that can accommodate them.

An official at the Busan Fire and Disaster Headquarters said, “The number of calls the fire department makes to the emergency room and the time it takes to transport patients are increasing compared to before the mass resignation of residents. However, there are no ‘hit and run’ cases such as being refused treatment in front of the emergency room.” “There wasn’t,” he said.

Firefighting authorities asked people to refrain from calling 119 in non-emergency situations, considering the confusion at the medical field.

This official said, “The emergency situation management center is working on an emergency basis by activating an emergency communication network to the nearby Yangsan and Changwon areas in Gyeongsangnam-do and deploying additional manpower to prepare for any emergency situation.” He added, “To ensure a smooth response to emergency patients. “We ask for the cooperation of citizens,” he said.
