Patients in Donegal deserve better - INMO
press release 02/03/22

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation is seeking an urgent meeting with senior management in Letterkenny University Hospital in light of dangerous overcrowding 

This comes as the hospital has informed all staff that the hospital is nearing major incident level capacity.  

INMO Industrial Relations Officer, Neal Donohue said

“The level of overcrowding in Letterkenny University Hospital is extremely concerning. Yesterday, there were ten ambulances queueing to get into the hospital.  

“The Emergency Department is currently at full capacity with nurses struggling with overflows of patients who have been admitted. All staff who can be available to work in the emergency department have been asked to attend.  

“INMO members are reporting that there is no available space left for trolleys and that they are reaching out to nursing homes to take patients if possible.  

“The INMO has been long sounding the alarm of the problems in LUH with hospital management, the Saolta Group and the HSE. 

“Staff, patients and the people of Donegal deserve better.”
