Pressure continues to effect ED times at LUH

Highland Radio, Donegal, Letterkenny, Hospital, Trolleys

Letterkenny University Hospital has again been very busy after a failure in its Laboratory IT System for much of yesterday, which required a return to manual ordering and reporting of blood tests.

This resulted in a backlog in the Emergency Department.

The hospital is repeating its plea to people not to present at the Emergency Department except in cases of real emergency.
