So many unanswered questions…

Everything has been said, or almost, about the H24 initiative and the counter-project concocted by the Friborg government. I am not one of the initiators and think that it is indeed impossible to offer treatment for vital emergencies in several hospitals. I followed with interest one of the information meetings organized by the HFR and members of the government. Session that left me with more questions than answers.

Here they are: apart from being a sorting center, exactly what types of non-vital emergencies are actually taken care of in a center such as that of Riaz? How does the management of these non-vital emergencies differ from that of a treating physician? Given the dismantling of the Riaz emergency room since 2020, how can we know if such a site is (still) interesting in terms of career for medical staff (assistant doctors and clinic heads)? Does offering a single health number in the event of non-vital emergencies meet the needs of a patient who has just cut their eyebrow or spilled a pot of boiling water on their foot?

What about the peripheral regions after 10 p.m., where an octogenarian (no longer able to drive at night) has to take his wife to the emergency room in Fribourg? To this question, Mr. Didier Castella answers “Rapid responders”, except that these are provided for in the context of vital emergencies. And finally: how does the simple person identify a case of vital or non-vital emergency? Are we coming back to the single health number, and possibly the message “All our employees are busy”?
