The National Assembly Health and Welfare Committee is in full luck. This is due to the processing of enacting the Nursing Act, which passed the first legislative review committee on the 9th. If the bill passes the plenary session of the Welfare Committee, only the Legislative Judicial Commission and the plenary session will be left. Doctors, such as the Korean Medical Association, who oppose the enactment of the Nursing Law, are gathering to demand the abolition of the bill.
The recent parliamentary discussion for the enactment of the Nursing Law began with the promise of the nursing law enactment ahead of the April 2020 general election. A year later, on March 25, last year, the ruling party proposed a nursing bill.
Eight months later, the first meeting was held at the 1st Legislative Committee on the Welfare Committee on November 24 that year, and the discussion of the ruling and opposition parties was opened. The second meeting was held in February this year and the third meeting in April. In the third meeting, a nursing law was prepared, and the enactment of the 4th meeting on the 9th of this month passed the bill.
In this process, the words were led by the bill of the bill of the Moon Jae -in government. The Medical Association replied that the National Assembly was so -called “passing” the discussion with the health care community.
In response, the president of the Korea Nursing Association said, “It is forced to pass the so -called nursing law mediation proposal that has already agreed in the third meeting at the 4th meeting. It is a claim. ”
The Medical Association defines the nursing law as a wrong health care policy. When the nursing law is enacted, it says that the effect of the law guarantees the pursuit of profit of nurses. In addition, nursing methods can negatively affect the lives and health of the people, while also raising the voice that it can result in shaking the foundation of Korean medical care.
On the other hand, the National Movement Headquarters of Nursing alone, focusing on the Korean Nursing Association, refutes the claims of the Medical Association because the intention of enacting the nursing law is a “national health promotion.” They argue that the nursing law is irrelevant to the interests of a specific literary, and it is necessary to enact it as soon as it is a bill for national health and patient safety.
■ What is the nursing method
Currently, the enactment of the Nursing Law, which passed the so -called the National Assembly’s Welfare Commission, is a revision bill that merged three cases including Kim Min -seok (Democratic Party), Seo Jung -sook, and Choi Yeon -sook (National Power), and nursing bills and nursing and mid -sized lands law enactment.
The legislation has been revised little by little through a total of four so -called meetings. When passing the bill, the scope of the work of nurses was summarized by following the current nurses’ business regulations. In other words, the nurse is a medical assistant under the guidance of doctors, dentists, and oriental doctors.
Initially, the bills proposed by three lawmakers included allowing nurses’ scope of work to enforce the work required for medical care according to the prescription. That is, allowing the nurse’s readership area. In particular, the Medical Association questioned this.
The remaining main contents include ▲ nursing care protector and midwives are excluded from the scope of nursing law application ▲ Deletion of the regulations of the nursing laws ▲ deleting the regulations of the medical institutions ▲ deleting the survey of the status of the standard work guidelines Business related to support centers ▲ Including nursing association associations in legal organizations and preparing progress regulations.
Despite the deletion of various law provisions from the initial bill, the Medical Association is still negative in enacting the nursing law. Kim Min -seok, chairman of the welfare committee, one of the lawmakers who proposed the bill, said on the 16th, saying, “Doctor organizations should act at the level of people’s eyes.”
Chairman Kim said, “Following the opposition to the operating room CCTV in favor of the majority of the people, it is an irrational opposition to the (medical association) law that many people agree with.” Since the name and praise of the doctor’s organization has been poured out, the consultation is ripe to the opposite of the people’s eye level. ” At the same time, he asked the doctors’ associations to be self -helped, saying, “Before the group behavior, we will be able to match the group intelligence and eye level of our society.”
Shin Kyung -rim, chairman of the Korea Nursing Association, also said, “The intention of struggling with strikes is to make the people insecure and threatening.”
■ It’s still a typhoon in a teacup, but
Although it is a issue where the medical community splits into two, the public’s interest is not yet high. This is because the complex legal passages and the interests of functional groups are combined.
On the 15th, a national doctor’s Representative Congress was held in Seoul’s society. The protests in front of the National Assembly also took place, but public opinion was not very shaken.
Proving this is the number of events of the generated news. From the 9th to the 16th, the news big data analysis system, Big Kins, analyzed the news related to the Nursing Law. There are 74 news produced by 54 media including comprehensive daily newspapers such as newspapers, broadcasting, and the Internet.
In the Word Cloud, the related words of ‘doctors’ and ‘nurse’ appeared equally. Considering that news indirectly reflects the interest of public opinion, the conflict between doctors and nurses surrounding nursing methods is still no different from the typhoon in the teacup.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to consider that medical services are one of the issues directly related to our lives. It is not completely noticed yet, but the explosive power of the case is not small. When nursing methods are created, the change in medical services is inevitable. Doctors focus on the future of the future, and the nursing system focuses on the necessity of improving the medical system.
Eventually, before the one side is determined, the medical consumers will be determined by the change in the medical system and the result of the consumer gain. For the regime, the trigger of the first social conflict since the launch of the new government is not good.
In other words, it is unlikely that the issue, which is shining only the confrontation between doctors and nurses, will be expanded to the people and regime over time.
Those who are interested in the process of enacting the enactment of the Nursing Law, which are currently assumed by the National Assembly’s Health and Welfare Committee, are limited to doctors and nursing, but the decision of the National Assembly is also eliminated to be operated as another primer in our society, where more they ‘participate in’. It’s not possible.
