4 Hour Work Stoppage To Go Ahead At the Mid-Western Regional Hospital, Limerick Tomorrow – 04.10.11


PRESS RELEASE, Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Members of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation in the ED, Mid Western Regional Hospital, Limerick will hold a further 4 hour work stoppage tomorrow Tuesday, October 4th, between 8. 30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m.

This action is continuing due to the failure to date of the Department of Health and the HSE to address the patient safety concerns of nurses related to:

Gross overcrowding in the Emergency Department and in–patient wards;

Failure to transfer all day case activity to supporting hospitals in Ennis, Nenagh and St Johns’ to assist in bed capacity issues within the hospital; and,

Unavailability of nurses to deliver care to ill patients due to the moratorium on recruitment.

All of these issues are having a negative effect on the delivery of a satisfactory standard of nursing care in the ED and throughout the hospital.

The INMO is calling on members of the public, community groups and politicians to attend the picket tomorrow to support this action for a "safe" Emergency Department and hospital for all the people of the Mid West region.
