With great devotion to their duty

“Our hospital has restored lots of children to health over the past eight years since its inauguration,” said Ri Kwang Chon, deputy director for technical affairs of the Okryu Children’s Hospital.

Such a remarkable achievement is attributable to the intense, selfless devotion of health workers of this hospital.

They regard it as an iron rule to bring to life any patient without fail and nurse them back to health.

It was not long ago when eight-month-old Kim Kun Phyong in Waudo District, Nampho City, was committed to the hospital.

The baby’s health was worse than it had been when they consulted through telemedicine.

A consultative meeting of doctors was held immediately, an emergency treatment group formed and a life-saving surgical operation performed.

The hours-long operation was successful, but it was just the beginning of a treatment campaign to bring the baby back to life.

Health workers studied the ever-changing vital signs of the patient day and night and continued the intensive treatment day by day.

“It was really unbelievable when my son whom I thought would be dead came back to life. To save my son modern medical treatment facilities were unsparingly used, expensive drugs continued to be injected into his body and medical workers mounted an intensive treatment campaign. He has been reborn at the Okryu Children’s Hospital,” said Ri Hyon Ju, mother of Kun Phyong, when he finally recovered his health.

Whenever I see little patients who are taken to hospital in emergency as severest cases, I first think what I should do if they were my children. Such a thought gives me new ideas or ways of treatment when I give them medical treatment,” said Mun Jong Sun, a doctor at the department of neurology.

In mid-March a three-month-old child was taken to the neurology department of the hospital with cranial cerebral haemorrhage.

The patient had deformity in the vein and jaundice in the whole body with respiration in the wing of the nose due to four to five complications of pneumonia, anaemia and others, breathing the last breath.

Health workers formed a theoretical treatment plan to save the child and launched a treatment campaign while injecting drugs and helping it produce bile. They continuously injected a large amount of plasma to treat anaemia, patted its back all night and cleared its throat of phlegm.

Their devotion bore fruit: four days later the child’s pneumonia symptoms were relieved and after ten days all the vital signs returned to normal.

“We only wanted to convey the loving care of the Workers’ Party of Korea that spares nothing for the good of the children,” say the medical workers of the hospital whenever they receive greetings of thanks from the parents of patients and many other people for their devoted efforts.
