La place de la médecine légale dans le dispositif ORSEC NOVI-alpha (Organisation de la Réponse de SEcurité Civile NOmbreuses VIctimes – attentats) : étude qualitative en vue d’améliorer la réponse de l’institut médico-légal de Grenoble en situation d’attentat

Abstract : Forensic medicine has been sought following the attacks with many victims in France. The purpose of the study was to collect the expectations of institutions and partners regarding forensic pathology during a NOVI-alpha plan. METHODS: Qualitative study was carried out between February and June 2017, with 25 interlocutors including professionals from the judicial field, administrative professionals, pathologists and forensic pathologists (FP). The data collected after a standardized survey were analyzed using the triangulation method and organized according to the thematization method. RESULTS: The FP was seen as a health actor by the administrative staff, as a judicial actor by the judicial staff and as a mixed actor by the medical personnel. The anticipation of an organized plan seemed important in the consideration of a terrorist attack. Most of the speakers thought that a FP called for the scene examination and for the identification of deceased victims, and unconscious victims, making the FP essential in the victim identification unit. According to the Public Prosecutors of Paris, the FP has no role in the scene examination and in the identification. Paris and Nice attacks showed the need to organize feedback, the recent awareness of the usefulness of the FP and the constraints such as the need for an activity in degraded. We showed the need to take care of the psycho-trauma of the caregivers. CONCLUSION: Provincial Medico-Legal Institute is able to manage an attack situation, by developing a specific protocol. Expectations will focus on identifying victims, enabling the FP to be the central element of victim identification.
