Midlands Nurse Says Working Conditions ‘Remain Intolerable’

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

A Tullamore Hospital nurse claims working conditions in this country remain ‘intolerable’.

Geraldine Talty also says it’s understandable that young nurses are leaving the country for work, and insists it’ll continue unless incentives are given.

Nursing union, the INMO, is currently protesting in Dublin against, what it calls, the failure of the HSE to pay graduates an incremental credit for their internships between 2011 and 2015.

Ms Talty, who is a former Vice President with the INMO, says staffing levels are inadequate.
