Public asked to stay away from Mullingar ED

Mullingar Hospital.

Members of the public have been asked to stay away from the Emergency Department (ED) at Midlands Regional Hospital Mullingar unless they are seriously injured or are worried that their life is at risk.

In a statment issued this morning, the HSE said that the ED in Mullingar is currently under “severe pressure with very ill patients presenting with a variety of complex illnesses and the flu”.

“We are asking people to think about all their care and treatment options and keep our ED services for the patients who need them most. We are asking patients with a less serious illness to contact their GP in the first instance where possible. 

“However, if you are seriously injured or ill or are worried that your life is at risk the ED will assess and treat you as a priority. 

“The care and safety of patients are in all circumstances the hospital’s most important priority.

Regional Hospital Mullingar thanks the public for their cooperation at this time.”
