Le Réseau de santé Vitalité pourrait bientôt fermer 27 lits dans la région du Nord-Ouest du Nouveau-Brunswick. L’hôpital régional d’Edmundston risque d’ailleurs de subir la majorité de ces pertes. Un département complet de l’établissement serait en péril, ce qui crée beaucoup d’inquiétudes.

Près d’un lit sur six pourrait écoper à l’Hôpital régional d’Edmundston. Santé vitalité prévoit fermer 27 lits dans la région du Nord-Ouest. «Nous ce qu’on pense c’est qu’en faisant ces transformations-là, les chirurgies et les autres processus vont être améliorés», partage le président du réseau, Gilles Lanteigne.

Ce ne sont pas 12, mais bien 25 lits que le Réseau de santé Vitalité demande au gouvernement la permission d’amputer à l’Hôpital régional de Campbellton.

Ce faisant, l’hôpital restigouchois serait à lui seul responsable du quart des 99 lits identifiés dans le réseau francophone comme pouvant être abolis.

Au réseau, on confirme en effet avoir refait certains calculs.

Malgré la perte éventuelle de 26 lits dans les trois hôpitaux du nord-ouest du Nouveau-Brunswick, la fermeture des salles d'urgence la nuit à Grand-Sault et à St-Quentin est encore envisagée.

Les différents comités de la région croyaient que la fermeture de lits permettrait d'éviter la perte du service d'urgence la nuit, mais le Réseau de santé Vitalité croit qu'il s'agit d'une solution qu'à court et moyen terme.

Le nombre de lit par hôpital n'a toujours pas été révélé. « La semaine dernière, on était à 23 lits occupés sur 20, dit le président du Comité communautaire de la santé de l'Hôpital général de Grand-Sault, Guildo Godbout. Ça fait que certainement qu'il y avait des lits, des personnes qui étaient sur des civières. »

Unionized workers are ramping up their fight against the Gallant government's plan to privatize the management of hospital food and cleaning services.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees released a scathing report on Friday listing problems that have come up in facilities where three leading food and cleaning companies have operated.

The so-called "Big Three" companies are Sodex of France, Aramark of the United States and Compass Group of the United Kingdom.

Norma Robinson, the president of CUPE Local 1252, predicts poorer quality food and "deaths from hospital-based infections" if any of the companies is chosen.

Hospital Services to be Privatized by Fall

(As published in English in the Telegraph Journal, July 2nd, 2015)

FREDERICTON • The Liberal government plans to have a deal by fall to see a private firm take over the management of food and cleaning services in the province’s hospitals.

The Liberals have signalled that they want to give the private sector a greater role in the province’s health-care system.

Health Minister Victor Boudreau announced in April that government had started negotiating with a private firm to deliver some services in both health authorities.

That direction was reinforced by Horizon Health Network CEO John McGarry earlier this week, who has now suggested the use of private health-care firms could pull physiotherapists, audiologists, dietitians and other outpatient services from hospitals.

Local health care workers protest privatization of services

The Sackville Tribune Post - Katie Tower - Published on June 10, 2015

12 06 2015SACKVILLE, N.B. – Local health care workers took the opportunity while the Premier was in town last week to voice their anger over the provincial government’s decision to privatize the management of non-medical services in hospitals throughout New Brunswick.

About two dozen hospital workers rallied in front of the Sackville Legion last Wednesday evening, when Premier Brian Gallant was scheduled to serve as guest speaker for the Greater Sackville Chamber of Commerce dinner.

“We’re rallying against government contracting out services,” said Bob Partridge, president of local CUPE 1252, the union representing licensed practical nurses (LPNs), food service, housekeeping, maintenance and clerk admin workers at SMH.

The government announced earlier this spring that the province is negotiating with a private, for-profit company to take over management of hospital operations such as food services and cleaning. These areas are currently managed in-house. Partridge said once management of those services are taken over, it will just be a matter of time before job cuts start coming.
