CHI Says Elective Procedures Are Being Postponed At Children's Hospitals

The country's three main children's hospitals have begun postponing elective procedures ahead of the peak winter months.

Children's Health Ireland which oversees services at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Temple Street Hospital, and the National Children’s Hospital at Tallaght says its due to the number of children and infants presenting for admission.

CHI says Crumlin and Temple Street are likely to see the greatest impact.

Yesterday morning, there were 22 patients waiting for admission to an inpatient bed in the three children’s Emergency Departmentss, compared to 11 for the same period last week.
