UHG is the third most overcrowded hospital in the country today

UHG is the third most overcrowded Hospital in the country today according to figures from the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.

The INMO’S daily Trolley/Ward Watch shows that there are 35 patients who are going without a proper bed today at UHG.

This is the third highest figure of Ireland’s acute hospitals today after UH Limerick (59) and Cork UH (50).

Back in Galway there are a further 11 people left on trolleys at Portiuncula Hospital in an unusually bad day for the Ballinasloe hospital.

In total there are 488 patients without a bed throughout all of Ireland’s hospitals today going by the INMO’S figures.
