Adopted by the Administrative Council and the Medical Council of Hôpital Notre-Dame,
June 18, 1934
June 19, 1934
refusal of the senior and junior interns to fulfill their duty at the hospital,
as is required by their hiring and their oath, demonstrates a lack of discipline
and constitutes an act of unsubordination liable to sanctions by the competent
authorities, including the termination of their employement.
authorities of the hospital strenuously refuse to recognise to the interns of
hospitals, and to the interns of Hôpital Notre-Dame in particular, the right to
strike as the act of abandonning the sick is synonimous with deserting ones
in this particular case, given the necessity to reestablish immediately normal
care for the patients of Hôpital Notre-Dame, the Board of Administration, on the
recommandation of the Medical Council, is prepared to show clemency, taking into
consideration the public apology that the interns promise to make to the hospital.
The Board also agrees to continue their employement, as was agreed upon last February,
on the condition that medical services be provided immediately.
