Mullingar Regional Hospital Continues To Struggle With Over-Crowding

Yet another public notice has been issued, asking people to avoid its EDs.

Mullingar Regional Hospital is continuing to struggle with over-crowding.

Management has issued yet another public notice, asking people to avoid its Adult Emergency Department where possible.

The hospital is "in escalation" and staff are working to manage the current in-patient and Covid-19 bed capacity, together with scheduled care.

Patients are asked 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.

However, adult patients who require urgent care will be prioritised.
