110 Medical Patients Await A Hospital Bed In Co. Tipperary Today

According to the INMO trolly watch figures, a total of 598 people are waiting for available beds in hospitals across the Republic of Ireland this morning, Sept 24th 2019.

Same represents the highest level of patients waiting since early April last.

The worst affected medical facility is once again University Hospital Limerick (UHL), serving North Tipperary, where the number of patients waiting on trolleys remains close to already record figures of 80 patients.

Yesterday, September 23rd 2019, 81 people were waiting on trolleys at UHL, the joint-highest number ever recorded in any Irish hospital. More than 1,000 patients have had to wait on trolleys for a bed in UHL this month, making it the worst ever September on public record.

A further 30 patients are presently waiting on trolleys in South Tipperary General Hospital, bringing the total number of individuals (80 + 30) waiting for hospital beds in just County Tipperary alone, to 110 medical patients.
