The hospital is advising people with non-urgent conditions to seek assistance from other parts of the healthcare system

27 patients are on trolleys in Naas General Hospital today.

506 admitted patients are waiting for beds this morning, according to today’s INMO Trolley Watch. 355 patients are waiting in the emergency department, while 151 are in wards elsewhere in the hospital.

Naas General Hospital is advising people with non-urgent conditions to seek assistance from other parts of the healthcare system such as their local pharmacist or GP

On Monday, Naas General Hospital said it was experiencing very high attendance and admissions.

The Emergency Department (ED) is under significant pressure with many patients requiring admission and with very high numbers of COVID-19, flu, and other RSV infections.

Where possible management at Naas General Hospital is asking patients with non-emergency conditions to seek assistance from other parts of the health service such as their local Pharmacist, GP, GP out of hours service, or a local injury unit.

Unfortunately, patients who are presenting at the ED in Naas General Hospital with non-urgent conditions are experiencing very long waiting times to be seen.  

Any patient who needs emergency hospital care will be seen and Naas General Hospital would urge such patients not to delay attending the ED.

Do not delay in seeking medical attention if you suspect you are having a heart attack or stroke, please dial 999 or 112 in an emergency.
