In the emergency department at UC, she’s preparing for a hectic summer. Now people are being asked to go to their health center if the need is not great.
The emergency department at ÅUC in Turku is the only healthcare unit in southwestern Finland that has a doctor on call at night during the summer.
Therefore, the pressure on staff can be significant, and now work must focus on dealing with the most urgent cases of patients, the hospital wrote in a press release.
Sergey Sadov, acting chief medical officer for the emergency department at UCLA, says the lack of staff and the lack of care space available in the wards also increases the workload in the emergency room.
Patients sometimes have to wait 24 hours in the emergency room for help. This is a new situation for us.
‘We need to focus on taking care of critically ill patients’
According to Sadoff, they are preparing for a stressful summer when many caregivers and doctors will have to take their vacations.
For example, if you need a medical certificate, this is not a sufficient reason to go to the emergency department.
We should focus on taking care of critically ill patients. If you have the usual flu, we’d prefer you take care of it at your health station, Sadoff says.
It is also possible to obtain an assessment of the need for care at the web address omaolo.fiAnd in the event of an emergency, you should always call the emergency number 112.
