 Thousands of medical strikes in Hong Kong media criticism: Nightingale will be ashamed


Threatening full closure with strike

The HA was scheduled to meet with the staff front of the HA who incited the strike on the 2nd, but the other side unilaterally declared that the negotiation was broken on the grounds that the chief executive, Lin zhengyuee, refused to attend and the HA arranged only one hour of discussion without sincerity.

The Ha staff front was established in December last year, initially advocating riots and three strikes. On March 3, the group launched the first phase of the strike, and set up street stations outside many hospitals for medical staff who promised to participate in the strike to sign in. As of noon, more than 2000 people had signed in. Yu Huiming, chairman of the staff front of the medical authority, said the SAR government should stop the outbreak of the epidemic in the community by closing down the border immediately.. She threatened that if the Hong Kong government still refused to respond to the appeal before 6:00 p.m. on the 3rd, they would carry out the second phase of action from the 4th to the 7th, calling on 9000 medical and nursing personnel to participate in the strike, including 6000 nurses, 1300 full-time medical personnel and 800 doctors, accounting for more than 10% of the total staff of the medical authority.

Chief executive Lin Zheng held a press conference on the afternoon of the 3rd, saying that in order to reduce all land and cross-border flows of people, the ports of Luohu, Lok Ma Chau, Huanggang, Hong Kong and Macao docks were suspended, effective from 0:00 on the 4th. However, the closure of more ports has nothing to do with the strike of medical staff. Anyone who takes extreme measures to try to intimidate the SAR government will not succeed. She said that she paid tribute to the medical staff who held their posts, and the strikers inevitably affected the rights and interests of patients at a critical time. She could not agree with this practice, nor did many front-line medical staff, which was harmful to the health and public health of Hong Kong citizens.

At 9 p.m., the staff front of the medical authority claimed that it was not satisfied with the high promotion of the chief executive of the medical authority and failed to respond positively to the problem, announced the breakdown of negotiations and the start of the second phase of strike. Gao said he did not think that he was negotiating with his trade union colleagues, because everyone is on the same boat, and he did not want to express his opinions with strike, so he should take the interests of patients as the most important.

Only a small proportion of the strikers

In response to the strike, the HA launched the Coordination Center for major accidents to allocate staff to maintain emergency services, including emergency rooms and cancer services. It is estimated that 50% of the scheduled operations need to be rescheduled, 1 / 4 of the outpatient services in general departments will be cut, and half of the occupational treatment services will be affected. On March 3, a reporter from Dongfang daily.com visited the pharmacy department and outpatient clinic of Prince wells hospital in Shatin and saw that the flow of people was sparse and the number of patients was significantly reduced, but the hospital service was not affected. Mr. Zeng said that he did not support the strike of medical staff and asked how it would help the epidemic. He said he would not use his work to force others to meet their demands, and the strike would only disgust the medical staff. Nearly 100 citizens went to the building of the HA on Tuesday to petition with slogans, criticizing the medical staff involved in the strike for ignoring the life and death of patients, and questioning their inability to stick to their posts at the most difficult time in Hong Kong, which is to bring politics into the hospital. Li Xinwei, a SARS convalescent at that time, said anxiously that today Hong Kongs medical equipment has been advanced, equipment has been improved and awareness of epidemic prevention has been strengthened. However, some medical staff have turned their backs on patients, making the anti epidemic war worse.

Fortunately, for the time being, the strikers account for only 4% of the total staff of HA, and most of the medical staff still fulfill their duties to maintain the service. Star Island daily said Wednesday that these people continue to fight under tough circumstances, which is a real hero, in sharp contrast to the irresponsibility of strikers. It is understood that the Hong Kong Association of private practitioners called on private doctors to go to public hospitals, and more than 80 people registered on the night of the 2nd. Guo Baoxian, the president, said the doctors recruited cover different specialties. They dont mind working in the isolation ward and dont think it would be dangerous to see a doctor in a public hospital. The Federation of nurses of Hong Kong has launched a joint Department to call on medical staff to stick to their posts. Some nurses choose to take early leave, and even some retired nurses hope to return to their posts. Su Xiaojuan, President of the Hong Kong Federation of nurses, said that the Federation of nurses had about 1200 members, most of whom disagreed with the strike. In addition, the Federation of Hong Kong Railway trade unions, the Federation of automobile transport industry and the Hong Kong civil aviation workers Federation jointly issued a statement, saying that they did not agree with the strike launched by medical staff, and that it was irresponsible, affecting social order and helpless to prevent and control the epidemic.

Nightingale will be ashamed

In the face of a medical strike, the Secretary for labor and welfare, Luo Zhiguang, called on medical staff to stick to their posts and take care of patients as the first priority. Liang Zhenying, vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese peoples Political Consultative Conference, said that the workers union used the complaints caused by the epidemic to instigate medical workers to strike and solicit speculation with patients. The nature of the whole thing is clear, he said, when the head of the Staff Union and the Hong Kong Dragon Trade Union sat on the stage and spoke at a press conference to announce the strike.
