28 patients are being cared for on trolleys at University Hospital Limerick today.
It’s one of the busiest days they’ve had since the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
They are among 72 people who have been admitted to hospitals across the country that are without a bed.
Neither South Tipp General in Clonmel or Nenagh Hospital have any patients on trolleys this afternoon.
This day last year there were 413 people without a bed including 63 at UHL.
