Mullingar ED busy again today

The Emergency Department at Midlands Regional Hospital is busy again today.

Hospital management issued a statement this morning:

The hospital is in escalation and the teams are working to manage the current adult in-patient 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.

Patients who require urgent care will be prioritised.

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