rsz_inmo_logoTHERE are 15 patients waiting on trolleys at Kerry General Hospital today according to INMO ‘Trolley Watch’ figures released this morning.

It’s up on the 12 patients who were waiting on trolleys yesterday, while nationally today there are 520 patients waiting on trolleys in hospital around the country.

Yesterday, the HSE appealed to people to avoid Kerry General Hospital’s Emergency Department when at all possible.

Hospital management says the ED is very busy, and is advising non-urgent patients that they may experience significant delays.

Where appropriate and if their needs are not urgent, the public should contact their GP first and explore all other options prior to attending the Emergency Department.
