The number of people waiting on hospital trolleys has reached a new record high.
Across the country there are 714 people without a bed this afternoon.
In Dublin, Tallaght Hospital is the worst with 40.
The General Secretary of the INMO Phil Ni’Sheaghda claims this situation could have been avoided.
"After the storm, I wrote to them saying the health service won't return to normal for weeks. Please only take emergency cases".
"The situation just kept getting worse", she said.
