The number of victories in the law-abiding struggle for the refusal of the Nursing Act… Will the practice of surrogate surgery disappear?

The Korean Nursing Association, protesting against President Yoon Seok-yeol’s exercise of the right to request reconsideration of the Nursing Act (right of veto), started a law-abiding struggle to refuse illegal doctors’ work orders, PA ( Physician Assistant ) Nurses’ unstable status has surfaced. Even if the Nursing Act is rejected , it is argued that the scope of work and management system of the PA

, which is estimated to number 10,000, and further legalization debates should continue. On the 17th, the Nursing Association distributed a list of doctors’ illegal work that nurses should refuse to medical institutions, saying, “We will reject doctors’ instructions for licensed work in other health care professions,” and set up an illegal treatment reporting center within the association. It declared a ‘compliance struggle’ to operate and manage the on-site inspection team separately. The association believes that this practice was created because of the hospital, with the intention of not engaging in medical activities other than nurse work. The report center was opened on the afternoon of the 18th, but in about an hour and a half, access and reports were so overwhelming that the server was paralyzed. The association plans to announce the status of cases of illegal treatment through a press conference on the 24th.

The Korean Residents Association (Daejeonhyeop), an organization of doctors (interns and residents) in training to acquire specialist qualifications, also said, “We welcome the nurses’ law-abiding struggle. It is the beginning and a historic moment of normalizing the scope of work.”

He said, “We cannot leave proxy prescriptions and proxy surgeries unattended forever. To solve this problem, hospitals will eventually need to hire more doctors and nurses. Nurses also need additional nurses to reduce the excessive number of patients per capita.” He suggested that additional doctors and nurses be hired by creating equivalent manpower standards.

PA nurses are manpower prepared by hospitals to address the shortage of doctors. Under the domestic medical law, there are doctors and nurses, but there are no PAs . However, it has become an essential manpower in surgery where there is a shortage of doctors, such as residents, and the need for institutionalization has been steadily discussed먹튀검증.

The National Health Care Industry Workers’ Union estimates there are more than 10,000 PA nurses in the field. In the medical world, there are also voices that a discussion structure should be created to adjust the role of medical personnel in accordance with the changing medical environment. There is also a view that the fundamental countermeasure is to increase the number of doctors.

There is no major chaos in the medical field yet due to the law-abiding struggle, but if PA nurses continue to take collective action, the treatment vacuum in the operating room may widen. In fact, individual front-line nurses welcome the law-abiding struggle and express dissatisfaction with the frustration of the nursing law.

First, the Ministry of Health and WelfareIt seems to appease the nursing community by promising to clarify the scope of work for PA nurses. Minister Cho Kyu-hong and Second Vice Minister Park Min-soo visited the university hospital to hear their stories. Minister Cho emphasized, “We will overhaul the system to improve the working environment and treatment and make it possible to experience it in the field.”

After confirming the results of the research service, the government is in a position to prepare a detailed scope of work for PA nurses by fully reflecting the positions of medical groups, patient groups, and nurse groups regarding the scope of work areas and management system that have not been clearly classified over the past three years.

However, it draws a line against the interpretation that it will institutionalize PA nurses or create new licenses. Lim Kang-seop, head of the Nursing Policy Department at the Ministry of Health and Welfare, told News 1, “I do not want institutionalization or legalization. Transparency is a more appropriate expression than bisexuality.”

Meanwhile, the association’s struggle for compliance is expected to continue until a re-vote on the enactment of the Nursing Act is made. Depending on the situation of the National Assembly vote, the association is expected to prepare countermeasures. Again, the possibility of approval is not high as the ruling party, the people’s power, decided to reject it at the time of re-voting as a party argument.
