University Hospital Limerick accounts for almost one third of all patients being cared for on trolleys today.

According to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation 94 people are without a bed at the facility which serves North Tipperary.

Nationally 308 patients who have been admitted to hospital are waiting for a bed this afternoon.

That’s followed by 24 at St. James’s Hospital and 22 at Tallaght University Hospital – both in Dublin.

Neither TUH in Clonmel or Nenagh Hospital have any patients on trolleys today.
