Overcrowding worsens at Naas Hospital

Naas General Hospital

There are twenty patients being treated on trolleys at Naas Hospital today. Only Dublin’s Mater Hospital has more overcrowding, with 23 patients on trolleys.

At Tullamore Hospital there are 18 patients on trolleys – exactly twice the number at Portlaoise, according to figures provided by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.
