The scenario has been chosen, but its terms remain unclear.

Two weeks after denying the closure of one of its two emergency sites for lack of personnel, the Bordeaux University Hospital announced its decision to its teams on Thursday.

The services of Pellegrin and Saint-André will remain open thanks to “

the reinforcement during the day of two of the three emergency doctors posted at the SMUR

” according to the Sud Santé union.

An organization that seems complex: while the Pellegrin site has already been operating in degraded mode for a year, the SMUR-Samu sounded the alarm in December, claiming to be unable to manage the flow of patients properly and "

put the life of the population in danger

”, always for lack of personnel.

Contacted, the management of the CHU Bordeaux did not wish to specify to


the terms of this new organization.

A stakeholder in this file, the Regional Health Agency, too, has not answered our questions for the moment.

Triage of patients

Diligent regulatory work to distribute the flows to private and public emergencies in the region awaits us

”, reacted Pascal Gobert, satisfied with the decision to keep the two emergency sites open.

A limiting list must be drawn up by the ARS to allow the sorting of patients to be organized according to the trade unionist Force Ouvrière.

However, he warns: from Libourne to Arcachon via the Bordeaux Nord polyclinic, “

everyone will have to take responsibility for the influx

” for it to work.

A prospect that worries the Sud Santé union, which fears "

consequences on the arduousness of the work

", as well as a "

risk of increases in calls to the SAMU and aggressiveness on the front-line agents in charge of this filtering

" .

Filed by FO and the CGT, the indefinite strike notice, which began on Tuesday, has not been lifted.

The unions are waiting to be certain that the summer holidays for caregivers are validated before considering it.
