Post-bank holiday hospital overcrowding remains out of control
Press release 19.3.24

651 patients, including 14 children, are being treated in Irish hospitals without a bed this morning according to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.
 
INMO General Secretary Phil Ní Sheaghdha said:
 
“We are coming out the other side of another bank holiday where hospital overcrowding remains completely out of control. 
 
“We will be seeking the discharge rate across all hospital sites from the HSE this morning. 
 
“Nurses, midwives and the patients they are trying to provide safe and timely care to have all been left in a completely unfair situation. 
 
“The Easter Bank Holiday will be upon us before we know it and our members want to be assured that the HSE has a hospital-by-hospital plan to ensure that the system is not completely overwhelmed by the end of the bank holiday.”
