Point de vue des médecins et infirmiers coordonnateurs concernant la gestion de la crise sanitaire de la Covid-19 dans les EHPAD, sur le territoire national

Abstract : Introduction: EHPAD (residential care institution for senior citizen) have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Great difficulties in these institutions predated the crisis. Methods: our study was carried out through an online questionnaire distributed nationally between May 11 and 22, 2020. The main objective was to collect and analyze the point of view of physicians and nurses coordinators regarding the management of the health crisis in EHPAD. Results: we received 571 responses from the coordinating physicians and nurses. They witnessed numerous delays in the delivery of masks and personal protective equipment for staff. The main difficulties they had to deal with during this crisis were psychological consequences on residents (79%) and overwork for staff (71%). The main effective support provided to them came from their EHPAD directors (77% of responses). With the help of 2 free-text answer field questions, we analyzed the current and future needs of the respondents, as well as their opinions and suggestions for improving the management of this health crisis. Increasing the number of nursing staff was by far the main demand. The limitations of the EHPAD model and the role of the coordinating physician were also discussed, as well as the reassessment of the administrative system in place. Conclusion: to date, it is essential to make the EHPAD’s jobs attractive to maintain the EHPAD current model.
