University Hospital Kerry Experiencing Significant Overcrowding

Posted by


UNIVERSITY Hospital Kerry is advising people not to attend the facility unless it’s a genuine emergency, due to significant overcrowding.

The Emergency Department is currently extremely busy, with increased patient attendances causing extreme overcrowding for the past 48 hours.

Management says it wants to keep ED services for patients who need them most, and is asking people to consult with their GP before attending. People will be treated as a priority if they are seriously injured, or concerned that their life is at risk.

Meanwhile, INMO figures released this morning  revealed there were 22 people waiting on trolleys at the hospital today.
