MEK Iran: Iranian Health Workers are in difficult condition
According to the state-run ISNA news agency, 11 Iranian hospital residents have died since March 2021 as a result of work-related stress, its implications, and the hardships of daily living.”For sure, we can say that this number will be increasing,” ISNA added, conceding that the tragedy persists. Medical students in Iran cannot have a clear and bright future due to
Hospital interns commit suicide for a variety of reasons
On May 4, various government news agencies claimed that citizens perished as a result of COVID-19, according to the state-run ROKNA news agency. Other media outlets, on the other hand, have reported that the fatalities were suicides. The Council of Iranian Medical Students reported the suicide of four medical assistants in Tehran over the course of two weeks in May 2021 in a letter to the regime’s Minister of Health.
Hospital interns commit suicide for a variety of reasons, including exhausting labour and long shifts. The Iranian Ministry of Health views its people as a cheap and expendable labour force under the Islamic regime’s rule.
Anahita Shahrasbi, a medical intern at Tehran’s Sina Hospital, died of heart death on September 9, 2021, after being exposed to extreme pressure while working in the COVID-19 emergency room.
Hospital interns in Iran receive the lowest pay
Due to a shortage of medical professionals, medical interns are being overworked; this female medical professional is the tenth person to die in less than six months since the start of 2021. Monireh Foroughi, a Ph.D. student in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, was the eleventh intern to die this year.
Despite the heavy-duty, hospital interns in Iran receive the lowest pay and perks. Interns have a legal duty under the medical code, yet they work as much as, if not more than, a professor. As a result, hospital interns are treated as unpaid labour and are paid about 6,500 Tomans (21 cents) every working hour. In addition to work pressure, female medical interns face a variety of forms of assault just because they are women.
Female interns are separated from their children
Interns in hospitals are often in their forties or fifties, and many are married with children. In Iran’s patriarchal society, they have a more difficult situation as moms and face additional challenges. Due to their long shifts, these women are separated from their children for several days. They still have to perform all the housekeeping when they get home after long shifts.
Female interns are advised not to become pregnant after being hired. Those who become pregnant, regardless of their physical state, do not receive any reduction in working hours or monthly shifts. They, like other medical interns, must work lengthy shifts and hours until their pregnancies reach their last months. Only two months of maternity leave are available to female medical interns. The intern hierarchy has been characterised as a new form of slavery and an insult to humanity by several of the female interns who have resigned.
