64 patients waiting for beds in UHL Joint Easter message on Covid 19 from Limerick City and County Council, HSE, UL Hospitals and An Garda Síochána Advertisement Call for Government action as 81 patients wait for beds in UHL Facebook Twitter WhatsApp MANAGEMENT at St John’s Hospital have formally requested that the hospital be upgraded in order to reinstate its Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit.The move comes as the University Hospital in Dooradoyle recorded a massive increase in the numbers of patients left on trolleys.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up St Johns was downgraded as part of a plan to centralise health services in the Mid West.However, hospital management have now written to the HSE requesting to be upgraded to Class 3 status to relieve some of the pressure on the University Hospital Limerick in Dooradoyle.Anti-Austerity Alliance Councillor Cian Prendiville, who is on the hospital’s board of management, explained: “What the hospital management have done is formally asked to be included in any review of services in the Mid West about the possibly upgrading of one of the Class 2 hospitals to a Class 3. They have confirmed to me that in any such review, they would be seeking to be upgraded back to a Class 3 hospital, restoring the A&E and ICU”.He added: “St John’s, Ennis and Nenagh should all be put back to their previous status, and the experiment in centralisation abandoned.”A HSE spokesperson told the Limerick Post they were currently unable to comment on the matter.Cllr Prendiville also voiced his support for the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation’s call for an extra 70 beds to be made available at University Hospital Limerick.“When St John’s, Ennis and Nenagh hospitals were downgraded, the government promised an extra 70 beds to help the Regional cope, but we are still waiting. They simply cut the services and ran. Now we are seeing the result of this, with a 20-fold increase in the number of patients on trolleys this July compared to 2007,” commented Cllr Prendiville.He is also calling on staff and patients to build a campaign “to demand the extra funding and staff needed to address this crisis”.

Mayor Jay Gillian The weather forecast looks great for the weekend, and the beaches, boardwalk and streets will be busy. As I have a couple of times already this summer, I want to remind everybody to respect the laws that keep everybody safe.Drivers must stop for pedestrians at crosswalks, and pedestrians should never walk out into traffic without first making eye contact with drivers. Bicyclists should heed all stop signs and red lights, and follow the same rules as cars. Drinking alcohol on the beach or anywhere in public is prohibited. This law will be strictly enforced. Dogs are not allowed on the beach at any time of day between May 1 and Sept. 30.Because some towns have outlawed them, many people have asked if the 10 x10 canopies that you see more and more on the beach are legal in Ocean City. The city does not yet have an ordinance governing them, but with so many people sharing limited space, please be respectful of other beachgoers. If it’s windy, do not set up a canopy. They can easily become a hazard to others.Please respect the power of the ocean and swim only at beaches protected by the Ocean City Beach Patrol. The patrol has started its extended evening hours at beaches throughout the island. You can see the locations and hours here.The city will hold its annual Bicycle Auction 10 a.m. to noon Monday (July 17) at the Shelter Road Recycling Center. Anybody can bid on bicycles that the police have determined to be abandoned or unclaimed, and it’s a chance to get some pretty great bargains. The auction is always popular, so get there early. Registration opens at 9 a.m. See more information here.Night in Venice is next weekend, and we’re expecting another great night for our 63rd annual boat parade. This year’s theme is “Rockin’ Through the Decades,” and the weekend celebration will include a Friday night (July 21) concert by the 2000s boy band O-Town with Ryan Cabrera and a Sunday night (July 23) performance by 1970s icon Gloria Gaynor. Tickets are available for both shows at oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice.I hope you all have a great weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayor
