(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #297 - Ehpad: You denounce the abuse? Sanctioned! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sat, 21 Sep 2019 08:59:53 +0300

As in the ancient legend, it is the bearer of bad news that the tyrant decides to shoot down. Several caregivers of an Ehpad near Lorient live today this ubiquitous situation. ---- Since January 2018, the South Brittany Hospital Group (GHBS) has been bringing together the various hospitals in the Pays de Lorient, including the Port-Louis / Riantec Ehpad. These megastructures were created to reduce expenses ... and in passing give full powers to the management to apply purely budgetary logic. ---- At GHBS, this translates into a significant understaffing of services and management based on fear, threats, pressures ... and now disciplinary measures. ---- Thus, three employees of the Ehpad are currently sanctioned for "undermining the dignity of patients" . What happened ?

On the morning of December 23, 2017, the team is again understaffed. Sophie, medico-psychological, says: "When we called the manager that morning, he told us on the phone:" do the best "." This response, caregivers hear too often. It means "Take your own responsibility for prioritizing care.That is to say, to perform certain treatments and not others. "So we have" done the best " ; we decided to make a proper toilet to all people and not to dress them. On the other hand, we gave them a proper meal." After service, the team nonetheless decided to write a listing to report " adverse events" of the day. It is mentioned that the patients could not be dressed but also, explains Sophie, in an "item management" , a "questioning of the role of the executive" . It is this second element that the management does not support: "If we had not said anything, in fact, nothing would have happened." There, the crackdown.

reversal of the accusation against the caregivers
In March 2018 then in November, the team is convened in a pre-disciplinary interview, before a disciplinary council on April 9, 2019. "The management blames us for what they were accused of, " denounce the caregivers: institutional abuse caused by problems of understaffing.

The situation is so unfair that the Disciplinary Board is against sanctions. But, coup de force, the director of the group, Thierry Gamond-Rius, decides alone to punish the caregivers: six months of exclusion without pay for one, downgrading 6 steps without seniority for the second and warning for the third. At the same time, a CGT elected to the CHSCT was demoted by 6 years of seniority for having warned a contractor that working outside the legal framework could be dangerous for her health and that of patients.

A managerial logic, ruthless governance: a system that mistreats the old age and strikes the dedicated workers who worry about it does not deserve to live.
