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.
“Jessica Crowley from west Cork brought her two-year-old daughter Aoibhín to Cork University Hospital last Sunday. The mother-of-two said: “She was left on a chair in the small waiting area for kids. Not once was she offered a pillow or a blanket, not to mention a trolley in a cubicle.”
