It was to be expected.

The government announced on Tuesday a "vast control plan" of the 7,500 Ehpad in two years to prevent abuse, in the wake of the scandal created by the publication of the book-investigation Les Fossoyeurs.

The aftermath of the “Orpea affair”

The wave of inspections of all accommodation establishments for dependent elderly people, private, associative and public, is part of a range of measures announced by the government following a consultation launched by the Minister Delegate for Autonomy Brigitte Bourguignon, after the publication of Victor Castanet's book-investigation on "the Orpea system", the giant of private retirement homes.

These controls will concern "the prevention of the effects of abuse", the "quality of support" and are accompanied by "increased financial control" by the regional chamber of accounts, according to the entourage of the Minister of Health Olivier Veran.

An online platform

An online platform will be created for reports of abuse by families and professionals.

The 3977, national number dedicated to the fight against abuse of the elderly, will benefit from an additional million euros.

The government has also announced the publication each year of ten key indicators allowing families to evaluate and compare nursing homes (including, for example, the supervision rate, the daily budget for meals per person, the presence of a night and a coordinating physician, partnerships with a health network, etc.).
