Around twenty parents of disabled children who are members of the Transparence handicap 17 association recently contacted a lawyer from La Rochelle to file a complaint against the Association for handicapped adults and young people of Charente-Maritime (Apajh 17), which welcomes their children. “We met with our council for the first time. Complaints should be filed before the start of summer,” confides Hervé Baron. According to the president of the association, between mistreatment or non-assistance, the motive is not yet completely defined.

The Nieulais Alan Cattelliot will join the movement. “When I read the article of April 19 (in “Sud Ouest”, Editor’s note) everything came together. » Iris, the daughter of this naval engineer, died on January 27, 2022 from a digestive infection, a few hours after her admission to La Rochelle hospital when she was only 4 years old. “Iris arrived from the children’s hospital in Tours at Apajh 17 in April 2021. We were very well received by the caregivers. They knew that they could contact the Tours hospital if there was a treatment problem. » The young child with multiple disabilities was fed by a gastric tube connected to external bags. “Very quickly, there were problems. The dosages had not been correctly respected. They never contacted Tours,” continues Iris’ dad.

“Omerta”

The child’s health deteriorated considerably in November 2021. Until January 27, 2022, when Iris died. Alan Cattelliot requested that his child’s body be autopsied. “We were told that it was complicated and that the public prosecutor was opposed to it. But we never had any document that proved it. »

“We had entrusted my little sister to Apajh. She died in their hands, not in ours,” insists Luan, Iris’s brother. “At no time did the Apajh board of directors come back to us. I have the feeling of a very strong omerta,” concludes Iris’ dad. Olivier Divet, the president of Apajh 17, did not respond to our interview request.
