People are asked to consider other options before presenting to EDs.
The Regional Hospital Mullingar’s adult and paediatric Emergency Departments are both busy this morning.
The hospital is in escalation and teams are working to manage the current in-patient and Covid-19 bed capacity together with scheduled care.
People are asked to consider other options before presenting as they may experience long wait times with those in need of urgent care being prioritised for treatment.
Hospital Management would like to thank the public for their support and understanding during this period.
