Following proposals put to the INO by management this morning, the scheduled work to rule due to commence at 8.00p.m. this evening at Ennis General Hospital has been suspended.
An additional 63 nursing hours have been provided to the medical wards to maintain safe staffing levels on night duty. An understanding has been reached locally that the appointment of an additional nurse at the Emergency Department can only be resolved by the HSEEA. The INO will be pursuing this matter further at this level.
