Update on patients with Covid-19 currrently in Tullamore Hospital

Tullamore hospital is operating above capacity today with a large number of patients waiting on trolleys for a bed to become available. 

The latest Trolley Watch figures from the INMO show that there were 13 patients on trolleys in the hospital's Emergency Department who were awaiting admission.
