In the case of 18 HIV-infected doctors, the majority of health workers are silent and devoted to the profession.

In the past, there were still many complaints about the ethics of the physician, but the lack of responsibility in the work and the moral degradation of the physician were only a small part of the "branch".

In fact, most of the medical staff are dedicated, dedicated to the profession, with his silent sacrifice career. The physicians became white fighters on the battlefield to regain faith, health and life for the sick.

This, we feel most clearly after the 18 doctors who exposed HIV at emergency surgery to win life for a female patient who is suffering from vaginal bleeding when not aware of patients with HIV.

This special emergency was held on July 4th at the Hanoi Obstetrics Hospital. The patient is on his way with his 11-year-old son from Quang Ninh to visit his home in My Duc district, Hanoi. Just to the bus station, she has signs of vaginal bleeding and fainting should be taken to the Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital.

According to doctor Luu Quoc Khai (Dean of Surgery A2) who performed surgery, the patient was transferred to a pale skin condition, small vessels difficult to catch, blood pressure drop not measured, discrete heart near like stopping the dam. The hospital had to mobilize 18 physicians from the departments to go to the emergency room to retrieve life for patients.

After cardiopulmonary bypass, emergency resuscitation; Patients with signs of life, heart beat back but blood from the vagina still flow.So, doctors decided to cut the entire uterus patient in the emergency room, not timely transfer to the operating room. The necrosis of the patient has been necrosis so this only way to preserve the life of patients.

Dr. Luu Quoc Khai - Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital visits patients with endometriosis after surgery.

When the whole team is undergoing surgery, the test section indicates that the patient is infected with HIV. However, at this time, the patient's condition is very critical, emergency 1-2 minutes delay may not be saved so the team still continue to complete the operation to save patients. Due to the lack of protective equipment, 18 of them were exposed to the disease.

The work of the 18 doctors of the Hanoi Obstetric Hospital is admirable. They did not hesitate to take care of themselves and lost the chance to save a human being. It is not only instinct but moral ethics, responsibility of the physician.

It can be said that the medical profession is a strenuous career with the potential risk of high occupational disease. Daily, hourly, physicians face the kind of illnesses, the boundaries between life and death, with those who are sick and tired.

Sacrifice in medicine is the silent sacrifice, the doctors quietly with the cares, the tension in the operating room but sometimes force majeure from death.Only those who used to go to medical examination or treatment at health facilities will find out how important Ho Chi Minh's statement "How important it is to be a mother".

Recent medical problems are just a small part of the sacrifice of a large number of physicians who seek life and health care for their patients. Therefore, we need to be objective, fair and sympathetic to the health sector.
