Naas General Hospital

There is just a single patient on a trolley at Naas hospital today - leaving it among the handful of least overcrowded hospitals in Ireland.

Only Tallaght children’s hospital, which has beds for every patient admitted through the accident and emergency department today, has a lower (zero) figure for overcrowding in the eastern region today.

Hospitals in Ennis, Nenagh and Navan also have no patients on trolleys.

At Tullamore hospital there are nine patients on trolleys while at Portlaoise hospital nurses put the overcrowding figure at four.
