Waterford has highest number of patients on hospital trolleys today
University Hospital Waterford (UHW) accounted for the almost half of the total number of people left waiting for beds in hospitals across the country today.
Just 11 patients in four of the country’s main hospitals were left without a bed this morning as the overwhelming number of patients abide by the advice of health authorities to self-isolate as the country continues the fight against the spread of Covid-19.
Almost half of these (5) were at UHW, which accounted for the highest number of patients on trolleys across the country, according to latest figures provided by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO).
Waterford was followed by the Midland Regional Hospital in Mullingar (3), Wexford General Hospital (2) and St James’ Hospital in Dublin (1).
