The union of emergency physicians chaired by François Braun before entering the government will identify “

unexpected deaths

” in the emergency room from Thursday, December 1, to protest against the maintenance of closed beds, he announced Wednesday, November 30.

With the closure of very many beds in our establishments

”, the capacity of hospital services “

is bloodless

”, is alarmed in a press release Samu-Urgences de France (SUdF), chaired by François Braun between 2014 and his appointment to the Ministry of Health last July.

“No-bed challenge”

This union had launched in 2018 a “

No bed challenge

” counting each morning the number of patients who had spent the night on a stretcher in the emergency room.

But this count "

no longer moves anyone

", regrets the new president of the SUdF, Marc Noizet, while "

the mortality of patients staying in our corridors is multiplied by three


This is why the organization has decided to launch a new collection, the "

No dead challenge

", from Thursday, December 1st.


Like a calendar, we are going to identify unexpected deaths every day, in all emergency structures

", specifies Dr Noizet, who speaks of a "

calendar ahead

"... “

before it explodes


“The situation has not improved”

Filtered access, increased night hours, use of private nurses: most of the measures of the "

flash mission

" on hospital emergencies, implemented during the summer, received a thumbs up from the General Inspectorate of Social Affairs ( Igas) at the beginning of the week.

But "

despite the hope aroused

" by this mission, "

the situation has not improved, quite the contrary

", accuses Samu-Emergencies of France.

The union hopes that its count will constitute a "

new indicator of dangerousness

" allowing "

an awareness of the need for deep action

", in order to "

restore decent and safe conditions of care
