Patients attending University Hospital Galway's emergency department (ED) who are waiting to be admitted to a bed on a ward, continue to experience long delays again this week due to pressure on bed capacity.

There were 70 patients waiting on trolleys on Tuesday in the ED, the acute surgical assessment unit, and the acute medical unit, according to the hospital.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, which compiles a daily trolley watch record, reported yesterday (Wednesday) that there were 29 patients waiting for beds in the facility's emergency department.
