“The service is completely saturated despite the opening of 18 additional beds. Children have to stay in the emergency room in the morning and only lie in beds during the day”says the head of the pediatrics department at the Avignon hospital, Sylvie Lamoureux, guest of 6-9 this Tuesday morning as the bronchiolitis epidemic continues to progress in Vaucluse.
“We have already doubled rooms, recovered places in small corners of the service and the tension is difficult for caregivers who have to work more”she continues. We have to give patients less time, which is extremely difficult for caregivers”. The head of the pediatric department at Avignon hospital expects the bronchiolitis epidemic to peak in the coming days, but fears that cases will continue to remain at a very high level in the coming weeks.
