Post- bank holiday trolley surge
Press release 2.5.23


704 patients have been admitted to hospital without a bed this morning according to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.


INMO General Secretary Phil Ní Sheaghdha said:


“We are seeing yet another predictable post-bank holiday surge in hospital overcrowding.


“Of the five bank holidays we have had so far this year, we have seen out-of-control numbers of patients on trolleys in the days following.


“This level of overcrowding must not be allowed to continue further into the year. Senior decision-makers in both the HSE and Government must come together now to develop a year-round plan to tackle this crisis.”
