Staff are working to identify patients ready for discharge.
The Midlands Regional Hospital Mullingar’s Emergancy Department and hospital is currently extremely busy with a number of patients waiting for admission.
Staff are working to identify patients ready for discharge and are trying to ensure patients are admitted as soon as possible.
They're asking people if you don't require urgent care to keep Emergancy Department services for the patients who need them most.
However, if you are seriously injured or ill you'll be treated as a priority.
