Could patients be turned away?
As in previous weeks, the Toulouse University Hospital asks the population to call the SAMU (Allo 15) before any trip to Purpan for somatic and psychiatric adult emergencies. Patients who need a medical answer that does not justify a call to the SAMU can contact 3966 by telephone after 8 p.m. to be put in touch with the general practitioner on duty.
Where are the discussions?
The CGT union is asking for 41 full-time equivalent positions at Purpan, 22 at Rangueil and 27 for psychiatric emergencies. The management of the CHU proposed Saturday an increase in staff by step by consolidating the teams: 16 people in the adult emergencies of Purpan, 9 in the adult emergencies of Rangueil and 6 in the psychiatric emergencies. The management of the CHU ensures “to carry out a proactive recruitment policy on all services for several months, in order to fill the 120 vacant nursing positions”.
