Limerick Hospital Halts Operations for Sometime

Big number of patients at the emergency department of the Mid West Regional Hospital in Limerick forced the authorities to temporarily cancel its procedures and operational activities.

Reports are confirming that Limerick hospital was forced to halt its operational activities due to the rush of big population of patients, both emergency cases and even non-urgent cases, in the emergency department of the hospital.

Seeing such severe situation in the hospital's emergency department yesterday, the Health Service Executive said in his recent revealed statement that non-urgent cases rather than visiting the emergency department must visit their GPs as this will not create any trouble for the hospital authorities and its patients too.

The HSE's statements further cleared that despite discharging numerous patients healthily from the hospital, it became very tough for the hospital staff to immediately accommodate the rise in the number of emergency attendances at the hospital (36 patients were yesterday evening waiting on trolleys to get their treatment).

Though by the evening, the situation improved slightly, the hospital staff had to halt their operations for time being to efficiently attend all the patients.

"We very much regret the inevitable delay and inconvenience but dealing with the situation in the Emergency Department must take priority", the hospital's Chief Executive Ms. Ann Doherty said.
