Patients at Irish hospitals face appalling conditions, as number of people languishing on trolleys reaches all time high figure of 714


The Irish health system is crumbling under the weight of 714 people languishing on trolleys, a figure that marks an all-time record of abject failure by the HSE.

Up to 80 people were waiting for a bed at some hospitals today. The Irish Nurses & Midwives Organisation (INMO) has deemed the current environment as ‘absolutely unsafe.’

Meanwhile, Minister for Health Simon Harris is floundering as he finds himself way out of his depth, unable to do anything other than throw an extra 5m at the problem.
