96 Patients On Trolleys In Hospitals Serving Tipperary

According to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) trolly ward watch figures, 399 patients are on trolleys in emergency departments and 117 are in wards around the 26 counties of Ireland this morning. In all a total of 456 patients wait on trolleys during the month of July.

There are 70 patients on trolleys in University Hospital Limerick, latter which serves North Tipperary, all awaiting admission to be assigned to a hospital bed.

Other hospitals seriously affected in the south and west are Cork University Hospital with 60 patients; University Hospital Waterford and University Hospital Galway with 30 each on trolleys. South Tipperary General Hospital also serving South Tipperary have 26 patients on trolleys.

It should be noted that this continuing situation is not brought about by hospital staff failures, but rather the failed responsibility of this present government, which continues to promote death by geography for residents of County Tipperary.

The Silence Continues.
