The Department of Medical Examination and Treatment under the Ministry of Health, ordered hospitals in the country to arrange medical workers to work in upcoming holidays including the Southern Liberation & National Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day.
Accordingly, hospital management boards must arrange managers, specialty managers, administrative medical workers, and safe guards and medical workers on duty to work in the holidays.
Besides, the list of medical workers must be placed in divisions openly to avoid the shortage of medical workers who will examine and treat patients in these holidays.
Hospitals are ready to provide treatment to emergency cases including victims of flames, accidents, poisoning and disasters. Medical experts must be ready to give consultation to their counterparts in small medical clinics in rural areas on difficult cases.
The Ministry also asked hospitals to prepare equipments, drugs, blood supply for treating severe cases as well as prevent seasonal diseases including dengue fever in the South and encephalitis in the North.
