The caregivers almost all on sick leave, the emergencies of Fréjus close for 3 days

This is one more consequence of the crisis affecting the hospital. From 8 p.m. this Tuesday evening, the emergency room of the public hospital in Fréjus-Saint-Raphaël (Var) began to regulate the flow of patients arriving in the evening. Tomorrow morning, the emergencies will close their doors to reopen only Saturday morning, reports France 3 Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

The temporary closure of emergencies in Fréjus-Saint-Raphaël has become inevitable. Of the 23 doctors working in the establishment, 21 are on sick leave as of Tuesday evening. The finding is the same among nurses, who are 34 out of 36 in the same situation. These sick leaves are the result of professional exhaustion.

Guest of BFM Nice Côte d’Azur on Monday, the LR mayor of Saint-Raphaël Frédéric Masquelier referred to a “scandalous situation” in the hospital of Fréjus-Saint-Raphaël with “incredible waiting times”. According to the elected official, “twenty patients find themselves overloaded on the stretchers” in the emergency room of the hospital. The mayor of Saint-Raphaël criticizes at the same time the functioning of the Regional Health Agency which he denounces a “bureaucratic functioning” linked to an “obsession with profitability”.

Absolute emergencies taken care of

Absolute emergencies will nevertheless be taken care of by a few on-call nursing staff. This will concern people in vital distress as well as obstetric, cardiac, pediatric and psychiatric emergencies. The other patients will be redirected to other remote centers, such as the Gassin health center or the hospitals in Cannes and Grasse. An hour’s drive from Fréjus, the emergency room in Draguignan has been closed at night for over a year.
