Further Work Stoppages By Nurses In Limerick Tomorrow – September 28

Members of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation in the ED, Mid Western Regional Hospital, Limerick will hold a further 4 hour work stoppage tomorrow Wednesday 28th September between 8. 30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m. This is due to the inability to date of the Minister for Health and the HSE to address the patient safety concerns of members.

Nurses at the hospital continue to voice their concerns regarding gross overcrowding and the consequent negative effect this is having on delivery of a satisfactory standard of nursing care in the ED and throughout the hospital.

According to Mary Fogarty, INMO Industrial Relations Officer: “We have now accepted an invitation by the Labour Relations Commission to attend a conciliation hearing later today.  At present the industrial action is still scheduled to go ahead commencing at 8.30a.m. tomorrow morning.”

The INMO is calling on members of the public, community groups and politicians to attend the picket tomorrow to support this action for a “safe” Emergency Department and hospital for all the people of the Mid West region.
