Concerns for non-Covid patients at UHG as cases & hospitalisations increase

Breaking Another Covid-19-related death at Portlaoise Nursing Home

The total capacity of ICU beds comes to 3,239 in these 168 hospitals.

According to data in the Covid-19 Hub, in the last 24 hours there have been 26 hospital admissions in Ireland, 238 hospital confirmed cases, and 29 people in Intensive Care Units. Patients who have appointments to attend the Hospital should attend unless contacted by the Hospital directly. Nearly all of the 33 hospitals also started implementing the government's order with immediate effect, it claimed, adding that order only covers 33 private hospitals and nursing homes, out of over 1150 private nursing homes and hospitals across the city.

During the resumed hearing, Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain sought modification of the stay order, as he submitted that cases are likely to go up in wake up of the upcoming festive season. In an affidavit filed before Justice Navin Chawla, the AAP government vehemently denied that the decision, which was stayed by the high court on September 22, was in violation of any fundamental right of the citizens of Delhi and termed the petition by "Association of Healthcare Providers" as wholly misplaced and baseless. The order is not applicable to more than 1,100 health institutions, leaving them specifically to cater to the needs of non-Covid patients, as per the reply.

The report released this morning shows that Portlaoise hospital's ICU was full last night but there were five vacant general beds.

Breaking Another Covid-19-related death at Portlaoise Nursing Home

Two patients with Covid-19, both of whom were residents in the nearby Kilminchy Lodge Nursing Home, died in the hospital recently.

The Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise can confirm that one ward at the Hospital is now closed to new admissions because of Covid 19 infection involving a number of patients and staff members.

A person familiar with the situation said nurses at the hospital are "frightened" and "really anxious" about the outbreak and its impact on staff numbers. Any staff identified as close contacts of Covid 19 cases are now self-isolating.
