HSE Must Clarify Situation at South Infirmary – O’Leary
Sinn Féin councillor Chris O’Leary has said the HSE must clarify the situation at the South Infirmary Hospital after reports that parts of the building have been without heating for the past four days.
Cllr O’Leary said:
“There are reports that the heating in the male medical ward at the South Infirmary has been failing for the past four days. Extra blankets have been issued to some patients but there have not been sufficient supplies to accommodate them all.”
“This is a very serious situation for patients and the hospital and reflects badly on health service management. It is appalling to contemplate a situation where patients are left without adequate heating in the middle of winter.”
“I am calling on the HSE to clarify what the situation is at the South Infirmary Hospital and to state clearly when it expects the problem to be resolved.”
