To deal with the lack of nurses, Joseph Ducuing organized an open day on Thursday. A first for this hospital undergoing restructuring.
The hubbub can be heard from Warsaw Street. This Thursday, in one of the rooms of the Joseph Ducuing hospital in Toulouse, doctors, caregivers, human resources and hospital management welcome candidates who wish to join their ranks. For the first time in its history, the health establishment organized an open day, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. “We are mainly looking for 10 nurses. We organized an event in the image of our hospital, on a human scale. 30 candidates are expected”, indicates Luc Leroy, the director of care.
According to him, the hospital is no longer short of staff once these recruitments have been made. Currently, it has 600 employees in its 15 different departments. This operation is not anecdotal, “it demonstrates the new dynamic”, says the executive. “After the internal crises, we have to make the nursing staff want to join us and show them that the time has come for social appeasement. »
For many months, the hospital had been operating in slow motion, for lack of staff. If the health crisis, which has highlighted the problems of hospitals, has slowed down the number of spontaneous applications, the setbacks of this hospital have sometimes frightened hesitant applicants. For many months, the Joseph Ducuing hospital in Toulouse went through an internal crisis. Relations between management and staff were stormy. But the storm has passed. The new governance, put in place at the start of 2022, and the medical teams are working together on the restructuring of the establishment. “If the situation had not been obvious, I would not have applied here”, slips Sabine, a candidate.
