Hospital trolleys

Overcrowding has eased at the region’s main hospital as the week begins, though University Hospital Limerick remains one of the busiest in the country.

The latest INMO figures show 47 patients were left waiting for beds at the Dooradoyle facility this morning, 30 of those in the emergency Department alone.

The overall figure is down from a peak of 70 last week, and is 3 fewer than the busiest facility today; Cork University Hospital.
