A Research of Physicians’ Working Hour’s Standards in Taiwan-Discussing Two Judicial Cases
After excluding nurses from using Article 84-1 of the “Labor Standards Act” and enacting the “Patient Self-determination Act”, improvement of physicians’ working conditions has been highly emphasized. According to statistics, the amount of physicians is limited and distribution is unevenly. The “National Health Insurance Act” has been implemented in Taiwan more than twenty years, the amount of cases regarding to physicians overloaded is climbing. Once physicians are regulated by the “Labor Standards Act”, consensus should be built related to defining regulation scope and working conditions. This article mainly discusses physicians’ working hour’s standards. Medical care institutions should also pay attention to this issue, because applying law and regulations correctly also belongs to the scope of risk management.
