Nurses Demand Action On Trolley Crisis

Share this article

Nurses are demanding urgent action on hospital overcrowding.

There were 700 patients on trollies yesterday, 51 were in Tallaght and 41 in Vincents.

Last month there were over 10 thousand patients, including almost 300 children, admitted to hospital without a bed.

Speaking ahead of their annual conference in Co Kerry, Phil Ni Sheaghdha from the INMO says there's a chronic staffing crisis.

''The main issue for our delegates will be staffing and the supports they have in their work places - or as the case has it, not sufficient supports. So without additional staff you are not able to open more beds so it all boils down to the same issue.''
