If a family member suddenly gets sick during a long holiday, I get embarrassed.
Reporter Seo Joo-hee has compiled a list of hospitals and pharmacies that are open even during the holidays and how to quickly find them.
From the first day of the holiday, hospitals are crowded with patients.
I am relieved that I can receive treatment even on holidays.

“My child suddenly developed allergies this morning..메이저사이트. There are no hospitals in the neighborhood that are open during the holiday season.”
Last year, during the Chuseok holiday, the number of patients visiting emergency medical centers nationwide was close to 90,000.
There were many people who suffered burns, traffic accidents, and enteritis due to holiday food preparation.
During this holiday season, on average, about 4,000 hospitals and clinics and 5,200 pharmacies across the country are open each day to prepare for emergency situations.
About 510 emergency rooms across the country are also open 24 hours a day.
Information on hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies can be found online, through mobile apps, and through the 120 call center.
By selecting the type of medical institution, such as an emergency room, hospital, or pharmacy, you can check whether medical institutions near your location are open, their clinic hours, and contact information.
The burden of medical expenses increases somewhat.
This is because the ‘holiday medical fee addition system’ applies from today until the 3rd of next month.
Medical institutions can charge patients an additional 30% to 50% of the basic consultation fee and treatment/surgery fee, and pharmacies can add 30% to the dispensing fee, etc.
The government said that the number of patients visiting emergency rooms is expected to increase during the Chuseok holiday, and urged non-urgent patients with mild symptoms to use hospitals and clinics that are open.
