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.
