St John’s Hospital, as is the norm, will have admissions from their own medical assessment unit which is fully operational today.”“Where patients are identified as suitable for an inter-hospital transfer, that transfer is only effected once all the necessary arrangements have been agreed between the clinical teams and bed management at both the transferring and receiving hospital.”“On a typical day at UL Hospitals Group, approximately 15 patients are transferred from UHL to the Model 2 hospitals at St John’s, Ennis and Nenagh,” the spokesman added.On Sunday, Tanaiste Simon Coveney promised Fine Gael would “fix the trolley crisis by making further investment in beds and staff”.Speaking outside Thomond Park, Mr Coveney told reporters: “Because of a strong growing economy, we now can make realistic financial commitments to add extra beds, extra staff into the system, and fix, once and for all, the accident and emergency pressures we are seeing in Limerick.”A 60-bed modular unit is currently being built on the grounds of UHL, and management has sought a further 96-bed unit.

Can anything save loyalty?

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Karen WebsterThere’s no good news these days if you’re in the loyalty business.It’s easy, though, to think that there is.For instance, just last week, Colloquy’s annual loyalty census reported that loyalty membership is exploding, with 3.3 billion loyalty memberships now in place in the U.S.If you never read beyond the headline, you’d think that loyalty innovations were setting the world on fire.But, it’s the fine print that tells the real story.Active participation in those loyalty programs has been on the decline since 2010, when it was pretty pathetic to begin with. Then, 54 percent of loyalty program members were inactive. Five years later, in 2015, nearly 60 percent (58 percent to be precise) of program members are inactive – despite the fact that the number of memberships is on the rise at 29 per household.And, since the definition of active participation is pretty vague, I’d bet that engagement, as defined by the ability of those programs to drive incremental spend to merchants, doesn’t even break double digits.You don’t need to have passed high school algebra to figure out something is way off here.I can’t say that I’m surprised. continue reading »last_img read more
