"Extremely Busy" Conditions At Mullingar Regional Hospital For Third Day

Management is appealing to people to avoid the ED if possible.

The emergency department at Mullingar Regional Hospital is dealing with "extremely busy" conditions for a third consecutive day.

Management has issued a statement, appealing to patients to only attend if absolutely necessary.

The hospital is in escalation and the teams are working to manage the current adult and paediatric in-patient and Covid-19 bed capacity, and scheduled care.

If you do come to ED and are not triaged as seriously ill, you may need to wait for a long period to be seen.
