An interview as if you were there
Head doctor at Mutuaide
– Florence Pommerie
Doctor, could you tell us exactly what your role is ?
My role is to be in charge of the entire scope of healthcare issues at an event. We help the organizer meet their legal obligations by acting as advisors, experts and operational service providers.
Who does the medical team consist of ?
The medical team may vary in size from 10 to over 65 experienced multilingual staff, depending on the event. The majority of them are doctors (surgeons, anesthetists, sports physicians, radiologists, emergency doctors, etc.) but there are also nurses, physical therapists, osteopaths and logisticians. Some team members can be experienced pilots, divers etc., depending on the event. At the same time, we may deploy off road vehicles and helicopter-borne mobile teams during races for example.
How do you arrange logistics ?
Organizers provide specifications regarding medical security. Thus we determine the resources to be put in place. During sports event we ensure both primary (on-field medicalization) and secondary (repatriation) patient care, for competitors, but also for spectators and the events’ logistical staff if necessary. We take charge of medical means (medicaments, X-ray devices, blood banks) which may amount to up to 12 tons of equipment. Prior to the event we organize hospital spotting in the vicinity of the venue We can even manage emergency situations as our field hospital can be transformed into an operating facility.
