• According to a tweet that has gone viral, a “coping of the staff” of a hospital without a health pass would be underway in the establishments of the Public Assistance-Hospitals of Paris (AP-HP).

  • This would be carried out using a form distributed to the caregivers concerned as a preamble to a summons to the human resources department and a suspension of functions.

  • If this "finding of non-compliance with the Health Pass" is used well within the AP-HP, it concerns staff who do not have the certificate in question and refuse to be tested, ie "very few" cases. according to the AP-HP.

The nursing staff of the Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) have they been subject to excessive supervision by their management since the entry into force of the decried Health Pass? 

This is in any case what denounces a tweet taken up by many Internet users: "The AP-HP asked the executives to police the staff with a denunciation sheet for" non-compliance with the Health Pass "with a view to '' a summons to the HRD and a suspension of his functions.

Each day adds its share of ignominy!

#APHP asked the executives to do the coping of the personnel with a file of denunciation for "non-respect of the #PassSanitaire" in view of a summons to the HRD and a suspension of its functions.

Each day adds its share of ignominy!

On the attached photo of this document bearing the header of the AP-HP, we distinguish, in addition to several free fields - "name / first name of the agent", date and time of the check - an important paragraph: "It has been found that you do not meet the conditions provided for by law (a result of a virological screening examination not concluding that it contains [the] Covid-19, proof of vaccination status concerning [the] Covid-19 or a certificate of recovery following contamination. You will be summoned to the Human Resources Department or the Medical Affairs Department. "

This suspension ends when the required supporting documents are produced and sent ”, continues this form.

20 Minutes

that, "in accordance with article 14 of the law relating to the management of the health crisis of August 5, 2021, the health pass is compulsory for professionals to be able to exercise their activity in a health establishment.


“If entry into the hospital grounds is made on presentation of the professional card, the supporting documents are checked directly in the departments by the management. It can be a vaccination certificate if the vaccination schedule is complete or a negative RT-PCR or antigen test or self-test carried out under the supervision of a health professional, less than 72 hours or proof of recovery. of COVID-19 [...]. The professional can also provide a medical certificate indicating a contraindication to vaccination, ”she adds. 

For its part, the USAP-CGT union confirms the authenticity of the document relayed on Twitter, which was “sent to it by comrades from the Henri Mondor hospital on Monday [August 9].

", And specifies:" For the moment, we have not had any feedback on cases of people summoned by the DHR but the executives put pressure on the agents on a daily basis to provide their Pass ".

"Very minority situations" and no suspension to date

“As required by law, if an agent is unable to present a compliant health pass and refuses to be tested, he is then summoned by his HR manager [...] in order to regularize his situation. Otherwise, the process may result in a suspension of functions. A form "finding of non-compliance with the health pass" has been set up within the hospitals of the Henri-Mondor AP-HP university hospital group (GHU) to report these very minor situations ", indicates the AP-HP.

According to its latest figures, "on the morning of August 11, 2021, the GHU Henri-Mondor noted that 36 professionals were not able to present the supporting documents required by law and refused to be tested". If "the first interviews have taken place or will take place in the days to come [in a] educational approach carried out by the teams this first week of entry into force of the law", the AP-HP underlines that "no suspension has not been pronounced at this stage. "

In an internal newsletter sent on August 6 and that

20 Minutes

was able to consult, the hospital group recalled the different cases in force depending on the vaccination situation of each (e).

Staff with a “complete vaccination schedule” are therefore invited to submit the linked certificate on the AP-HP portal, while caregivers with a still incomplete schedule must provide a negative test.

“From September 15, if you have not started your vaccination cycle, you will no longer be able to work.

[...] From October 16: if you are not fully vaccinated, you will no longer be able to work.

You will be contacted by your HR manager [...] in order to regularize your situation.

Otherwise, the law provides for suspension of functions without remuneration, ”this document finally specifies. 


Compulsory vaccination: For nursing staff, it is the "government method" that creates tensions
