The Union of Emergency Physicians, chaired by François Braun, the current Minister of Health, will detect “unexpected deaths” in emergency hospitals. The operation starts on Thursday, December 1st. This is a protest against the maintenance of closed beds.

“With the closure of so many beds in our institutions, the capacity of hospital services has been ‘bled dry’,” says a press release from Samu-Urgences de France (SUdF), led by François Brown between 2014 and his appointment to the ministry. health in July.

In 2018, the union launched the “No Bed” campaign, counting each morning the number of patients who spent the night on stretchers in the emergency room. But that count “doesn’t bother anyone anymore,” laments new SUdF president Marc Noisette, while “the death rate of patients in our corridors is multiplied by three.”

Alert “before it explodes”

That’s why the organization has decided to release the new Call Without the Dead collection from December 1st. “Like a calendar, we will detect unexpected deaths daily in all emergency structures,” says Dr. Noisette, who talks about the “calendar ahead” … The goal is to prevent “before it explodes.”

Filtered access, increased night hours, use of private nurses: most of the “operational mission” measures for emergency care in hospitals implemented in the summer received approval from the General Inspectorate for Social Affairs (Igas) at the beginning of the week. But “despite the hope aroused” by the mission, “the situation has not improved, quite the contrary,” accuses Samu-Emergencies of France.

The union hopes its count will be “a new danger indicator” to “recognize the need for serious action” to “restore dignified and safe care conditions.”
