Some 108 Patients Without A Hospital Bed In Tipperary Today

“The silence is deafening; the inaction demonstrates sheer abandonment by Councillors and Politicians”.

Limerick University Hospital, Dooradoyle, serving North Tipperary Area.

Patients sent to hospitals servicing Co. Tipperary can expect to be in for a long waiting time today. The Emergency Departments at South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel and University Hospital Dooradoyle, Co. Limerick, latter which services North Tipperary, has 40 people and 68 people (Total 108 persons), respectively waiting for a bed. The INMO confirm today that both building are once again the most overcrowded hospitals in Ireland.

The hospital with the worst level of overcrowding in March of this year (2019), was again University Hospital Limerick, with 1,054 people left without a bed.

In view of all this; whatever about sitting TD’s, I personally can’t see dreams coming through for Fine Gael’s Mrs Mary Newman Jullian (Mary For Tipperary) and Mr Garret Ahearn (A New ERA in Tipperary), at the next General Election, despite attending in the crowd at the recent ‘An Post’ protest March in Liberty Square, Thurles, last Friday.

Maybe it is time for another protest march in Liberty Square, this time to demand action on hospital beds for North Tipperary patients.

UPDATE April 3rd 2019: New record claimed by University Hospital Limerick, servicing North Tipperary: Eighty one (81) patients without a bed in their facility today; the highest daily figure ever recorded for ‘waiting for a bed’ in an Irish hospital. Someone call Guinness Book Of Records.

Meanwhile, today April 3rd 2019, serving South Co. Tipperary; South Tipp General hospital has forty patients being cared for on their corridors; in their Emergency Department or in overflow areas, again without a bed. A total altogether of 121 patients for within the county.

The Silence Continues.
