This week’s Limerick Leader

David Raleigh, in The Irish Times, reports:

An investigation has begun into the death of a man in University Hospital Limerick last month, who was found on the floor next to his trolley.

The middle-aged male patient, who had been kept away from other patients because of an infection risk, was discovered by an emergency department nurse in an isolation cubicle [in mid-December], sources confirmed.

…The hospital did not comment on claims in a report in the Limerick Leader, by a “high-ranking medical source” that the patient suffered a broken neck.

It is not known whether the patient had sustained the alleged injury before or after he was admitted to the emergency department.
