THERE are nine patients waiting on trolleys at the Emergency Department of University Hospital Kerry this morning and while that number is relatively low, it’s the highest of any hospital in the country today.

Numbers have been relatively low at UHK all week with seven waiting yesterday, three on Wednesday, four on Tuesday and 11 on Monday.

Nationwide, there are 64 admitted patients waiting for beds this morning, according to today’s INMO Trolley Watch, which is a fraction of normal figures for this time of year.

Letterkenny University Hospital has eight patients on trolleys,  Mercy University Hospital Cork has seven, University Hospital Limerick has four, St James’ Hospital and St Vincent’s University Hospital, both in Dublin have six each.
