Faced with the coronavirus, solidarity is also organized within private hospitals. A group of 32 nurses and nursing assistants from the North left, this Friday morning, to lend a hand to the clinics of Ile-de-France, more and more called upon to treat the cases of Covid-19, a- we learned from the Ramsay group, one of the largest groups of private clinics in Europe.
"We have been mobilized alongside public hospitals since March 13, following a request from the Ministry of Health," explains François Guth, director of the Lille Métropole center at Ramsay. The ten northern establishments are preparing.
First Ten Covid-19 Resuscitation Beds
The first ten resuscitation beds dedicated to patients with Covid-19 were installed at La Louvière, in Lille. Twenty others are due to open on Monday at the Bois private hospital, still in Lille.
But for now, it is the forty or so clinics in the Ile-de-France region who find themselves in a difficult situation, affected by the growing number of people affected by the coronavirus. Hence the call for mobilization launched on Wednesday by the northern management with its caregivers.
One week mission
"In two hours, 32 people responded to go and lend a hand to very tired teams in establishments in the north and east of Paris," says François Guth. The mission must last a week because the Nord department expects, in turn, a possible wave of patients in the coming days.
"One-off transfers of personnel have already taken place between the province and Paris, but this is the first time in the North", underlines François Guth. The 32 caregivers left, this Friday morning, in a 64-seat bus, after a collection made in various northern clinics.
