The president and CEO of Urgences-santé, which manages the ambulance service in Montreal and Laval, had to leave his post temporarily because of two complaints filed against him.
The organization explained Monday, in a brief press release, that Nicolas d'Ulisse is the subject of two complaints under the “Policy for the prevention and management of incivility, harassment and violence in the workplace Urgences-santé ”.
“The Corporation takes the situation seriously and acts in accordance with its values, the policies in force and the confidentiality required”, it was added, without giving the slightest detail on the nature of the complaints which led to the withdrawal of Mr. D'Ulisse.
Pending an investigation into these complaints, the CEO will be replaced “for an indefinite period” by the deputy director general of operations of Urgences-santé, Daniel Jacques.
Urgences-santé specified that its priority remains to maintain the quality of the service provided to the population, “especially in the current context of the Covid-19 pandemic”.
