Hospital trolleys


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

The latest trolleywatch analysis from the INMO shows that there were 59 patients awaiting a bed at University Hospital Limerick this morning – that’s 10 more than yesterday.


Of those, 31 were on trolleys in the emergency department, while 28 more were being catered for in overflow areas of wards.
