Possibilités d’hospitalisations directes dans les services de médecine de l’hôpital Mémorial de Saint-Lô : état des lieux et pistes d’améliorations

Abstract : Direct hospitalization is an alternative to sending patients to the emergency department, which improves their care by optimizing their care pathway. The objective of this work was to observe what is currently being done regarding direct hospitalization in the medical services of the Saint-Lô Memorial Hospital and to propose avenues for improvement. We conducted a cross-sectional descriptive study from September to December 2019 through a questionnaire sent to general practitioners. With 41 analyzable responses, we have a participation rate of 30% of the targeted doctors. All of the physicians surveyed consider direct hospitalization to be beneficial for their patients, but 45% still send their patients to the emergency room in situations that would allow them to be hospitalized directly. 61% consider this type of hospitalization difficult, the most limiting factors being the lack of beds and practical problems (waiting time too long, difficulties in contacting hospital doctors and delays in treatment). The main area for improvement that emerges is to optimize the speed of direct hospitalization (facilitating telephone contacts between private and hospital doctors, increasing the number of beds and improving bed management). Identifying the difficulties faced by general practitioners in scheduling direct hospitalization has enabled us to propose concrete approaches aimed at improving patient care and the quality of doctor’s work.
