61 Waiting On Trolleys At UHL

Hospital trolleys

The number of people on trolleys at the region’s main hospital is on the rise once again.

The latest figures from the INMO show that there were 61 people without a bed at University Hospital Limerick earlier, 43 of those on trolleys in the emergency department.

It’s 14 more than the next busiest facility of Cork University Hospital, and comes on a week when management at the Dooradoyle facility has admitted a lack of resources is putting them under strain.
