Naas Hospital is among the worst in Ireland for overcrowding today

Naas General Hospital

There is more overcrowding at Naas Hospital today than at most other hospitals in Ireland today.

There are 27 patients on trolleys there today having been admitted through the accident and emergency department.

This means it’s more overcrowded than any hospital in the eastern region, which includes the Dublin hospitals.

Only University Hospital Limerick and South Tipperary General Hospital,  which have 43 and 29 patients on trolleys respectively, are more overcrowded.
