That’s according to the Irish Nurses’ and Midwives’ Organisation which  carries out daily checks in hospitals nationwide.

The HSE says the figure had reduced to four by yesterday evening and the spike was due to an increase in patients attending the Emergency Department.

Thursday’s figure follows on from eight patients on trolleys on Wednesday and ten patients on trolleys the previous day.
