Interns’ resignation letters will take effect soon

Protest continues: Letters of resignation of about 2,500 students, interns and interns will be submitted today (Thursday) at 14:00 to the Ministry of Health, as part of their protest about not shortening the duration of the shifts. Dr. Shani Saborai Band, Who specializes in orthopedics at Kaplan Hospital, who signed a letter of resignation, discussed the decision with Gideon Oko: “I will submit the letter with a very heavy heart, and it will take effect in two weeks. It is difficult.”

She added on 103FM that “it feels hard, but we feel we have no choice. We are sorry we had to make this move at all, we would be very happy if the promises they made – were fulfilled.” Oko asked her to elaborate on the struggle and their demands, and the intern explained: “It is important to know a few things – first, that the budget increase we are currently requesting is minor, NIS 30 million, to enable the outline we are requesting.”

“We are asking for additional standards when it comes to existing doctors waiting to have a standard. These are doctors who sit and wait, sometimes for years, until a vacant standard becomes available in one of the departments,” she stressed. In the end, it’s just a little too much. “

According to her, this is a permit and not an outline, and there is nothing in it. “There is no line in it because they rolled it out until it was emptied of content and nothing was left in it. There is no deadline and a guarantee that the specializations in all professions will be shortened,” said Dr. Saborai Bend. Theirs, will continue to do so. “

The presenter noted that alongside the irrational shifts, there are also insane loads in the departments. He wondered: “Perhaps it is impossible overnight to solve the distress and crisis of a system that has been starving for so many years?”. The intern replied: “We are asking for a possible outline, which has been agreed with the Ministry of Health. We have sat with them, we know how many standards need to be added.” She stressed: “We are not asking for an outline that will lead to us waking up tomorrow morning to a reality where there are no 26-hour shifts in any of the areas.”

Dr. Saborai Bend was even arrested during one of the demonstrations in front of the home of the Minister of Health Nitzan Horowitz. Oko said: “Not enough 26-hour shifts, after that you spent several hours in detention.” She replied: “True, it is important to understand that we are not asking for something impossible, it is possible something that the Ministry of Health agreed to in closed conversations with us and then repeated it.”

At the end of the conversation, the doctor explained what would happen at two o’clock in the afternoon: “I hope they will recover and understand that a catastrophe is going to happen here, no less. Be here, the system will not survive without interns for a day because as we said, the system Become your most central axis of the health care system, they do everything. “
