As the question stands, it's really broad, as you're covering several different aspects such as "how to handle tech debt", "how to handle bugs mid sprint and also here", "how to motivate developers in such an environment". There's no magic bullet. As Cornelius Fichtner reminds on his PrepCast, we must eat an Elephant one bite at ...

If the people causing developers to leave or underperform are not under your control and are not listening to you, you can't do much. Urging developers to stay against their own interests will not work. You can't fix bad management from below.

You need to define further what you mean by, "...is not being tested properly". Was the testing not proper because the tester improperly performed the test or was it improper because the test was inadequate? Without an answer to the root cause, you have no possible action. So to answer your question, your best approach is to uncover the root cause. ...

For me, it wouldn't make any difference if you did all the testing, B did all the testing or if you shared the effort. Nor does it make a (big) difference if what you notice in production is a new problem, an incomplete fix or a regression. In all cases, you should follow the procedure for reporting and assessing a problem found in the production environment....
