The hospital has issued another warning this morning.

For the third day in succession, the MRH Mullingar is reporting that their Adult and Paediatric Emergency Departments are extremely busy. 

They're asking patients to consider their treatment options before attending the ED but advise that those requiring urgent care will be prioritised. 

Management are thanking the public for their support and understanding. 

Full statement: 

Regional Hospital Mullingar’s Adult and Paediatric Emergency Departments are both extremely busy this morning.

The hospital is in escalation and the teams are working to manage the current Adult and Paediatric In-Patient and Covid-19 Bed Capacity together with Scheduled Care.

We would ask patients to consider their options before attending the Emergency Departments.

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.

Adult and Paediatric Patients who require urgent care will be prioritised.

Hospital Management would like to thank the public for their support and understanding during this period.
