There is overcrowding at Naas Hospital today

Naas General Hospital

There are 23 patients on trolleys at Naas Hospital today - more than any other hospital in the eastern region. However this is less that the overcrowding figures reported for the hospital by nurses last week, which exceeded 30 on at least two days.

The next worst affected hospital in the eastern region is St. James's in Dublin with 21 patients on trolleys.

There are 16 patients on trolleys at Portlaoise Hospital and 22 at Tullamore Hospital.
