Limerick Hospital – Most Overcrowded Again Today.

Currently some 523 patients are waiting on trolleys nationally at hospitals today, according to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO).

Not for the first time or indeed the last; to Tipperary’s shame, the worst affected medical facility in Ireland is again University Hospital Limerick, serving the North of Tipperary county, where there are 57 patients without a bed.

You can view accurate daily emergency department figures by clicking HERE. Same figures shown are a count of the number of additional patients on beds, trolleys or chairs, on inpatient units, latter above the stated complement of that unit and which provides a complete picture of our hospital overcrowding.

Why is there such an air of silence and acceptance here in Tipperary, with regard to what is being offered on this most serious of health issues?
