Is it teething time for your little one?


Earlier this week it was revealed that there were over 600 people waiting on beds in Irish hospitals.


Ireland has been left stunned by the trolley crisis, which has seen hundreds of people left waiting on beds in hospitals around Ireland.


Today, the Health Service Executive shared that there are 12 children on trolleys in the three children's hospitals in Dublin.


According to reports, there are eight children waiting for beds at Our Lady's Children's Hospital Crumlin. There are two children waiting on beds in Temple Street Children’s Hospital and two at Tallaght Hospital.



There have been two children waiting on beds over nine hours at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.


However, it seems that the numbers are beginning to decrease as nurses have released that there are currently 592 people waiting for beds.


Midland Regional Hospital, University Hospital Limerick and St. Lukes in Kilkenny are among some of the worst affected hospitals.



Today, Minister for Health Simon Harris stated that he is determined to fix the overcrowding issue and has apologised to the hundreds of people waiting on beds nationwide.


The HSE is set to release an update on the Australian flu later today, which is one of the main reasons for the increase in hospital admissions.
