INMO says members struggling in Storm Emma backlog

Nurses say hospitals around the country are drowning in the backlog from Storm Emma.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation say their members are struggling to cope, with more than 3,000 patients recorded on hospital trolleys in the past week.

General Secretary and Ventry native Phil Ni Sheaghdha says emergency measures need to be implemented immediately – to allow hospitals to recover before the bank holiday.
