Emergency meeting called as nurses at ‘breaking point’


An emergency meeting is taking place today, as the country's nurses say they can no longer provide a safe service.

The INMO says hospital staffing is in 'freefall', with over 3,500 nurses out of work due to Covid-19.

It comes as a record 1,043 patients were in hospital at 2pm yesterday with the virus.

Ahead of an emergency meeting of the INMO's executive, general secretary Phil Ní Sheaghdha says nurses are at breaking point.
