Kerry General one month late with A and E assessment

Kerry General is to submit their assessment of their Accident and Emergency Department to the Health and Safety Authority tomorrow. The submission is a month behind other hospitals who submitted their reports on February 25th. The Health Service Executive has not yet given any reason as to why Kerry General is almost a month late submitting their report. The closing date for receipt of the audit was February 25th.In January The Health and Safety Suthority wrote to the Chief Executive of the HSE. In the letter the Health and Safety Authority asked that a comprehensive risk assessment of Accident and Emergency Departments be carried out. It follows ongoing growing concern across the country about the level of over crowding in A and E Departments. A statement is due next week from the health and safety authority outlining their assessment of the audit. Recommendations may be made on any follow up measures that need to be taken at Kerry General. It`s unclear whether or not the hse will issue a statement explaining their late submission.
