Well given the comment was that Patient would die in Ambulance passing the hospital then clearly hospital would not have saved patient as they were already so close to death.

well odie i hope for youre sake you dont visit casualty soon.you should bring youre own bed.youre probably going to blackrock like lenihan and dont care about the peasants.my mother was terminally ill in casualty in the mater in 2006 (boom time?) she was left in a chair in front of an emergency exit for 48 hrs.they couldnt move her,there was simply no room.i can tell you she died at home peacefully and never set foot in a hospital again.i pity the people outside dublin they are going to have to travel for hours for any kind of specialist service.i was on dialysis and people were travelling from all over the country for treatment.i can assure you its no joke travelling after dialysis.this is a third world country for the peasants.

So which would you prefer for dialysis a specialist centre where they know how to deal with patients because they see people every day of the week and understand and know how to spot symptoms or a place that sees 10 patients a week ?

ARA...Odie...
the "Specialist" centres NOW are private clinics..and who knows how many they are seeing...cos they are not part of the alleged "tell all "Health stat figures!!



If you really think that the likes of Drogheda or Beaumont can deal with the appendixes, hernias, gallbladders, you're dreaming!!!

The electives will be done in the Hermitage...cos they are in need of a dig out....Job Done...courtesy of the MInister et all

they have private clinics in some parts of the country,i was in a private clinic,mostly foreign nurses.they were great people but couldnt spot a symptom or answer any questions.another thing is you had a better chance of a transplant because it was costing the hse so much.i often wondered if harneys " husband" had anything to do with the private company.

I had the misfortune to be in Navan A&E twice in the last year. Not a nice experience. I can only imagine the bedlam in the Lourdes Drogheda if all of those people are transferring over there.

Well done to Cllr Tóibín and the rest of the Save Navan Hospital Campaign on last nights meeting. Over 250 people looking to join the campaign organising committee!!

Good luck at tomorrow's protest outside Dempsey's Office at 12.30pm

I don't want to sidetrack the discussion but if the hospital is closed will those employed there be let go or just given "nothing to do" jobs elsewhere?

There's a wild theory in medical circles that says a hospital will have more facilities than an ambulance so you have a better chance of survival in the former.
There is another wild theory that if you transport a person to a hospital with the facilities and PEOPLE there the survival chances are even better.

A small regional hospital is unlikely to have the availability of lots of specialist doctors as a larger one.

It's been quoted often enough but it's so good I have no problem repeating it.
"What use is a centre of excellence if you die in the time it takes to get you there"

Would you prefer to fly the Atlantic in a plane with two perfectly sound engines or one super sound one?

If you don't live to get there then all the high tech in the world wont save you. I speak from direct personal experience of getting to the local A&E in Portlaoise with seconds to spare. If I'd had to go to Tullamore I would have been DOA. Having survived I was transferred to the shiny goodies in Dublin for specialist treatment.

You close hospitals, you kill people. It really is that simple.

My family are in a predicament at the moment. Last Tuesday morning I got a call from my mother to tell me my grandmother was bad and that they were nt sure if she was going to make it. I packed a bag and went home Tuesday night and went to Navan hospital to say goodbye to my grandmother. It was not the easiest of times I can tell you that. She has improved slightly however she has an an aneurysm and needs to be operated on. The surgeoin in Navan said he can operate but is not allowed to in Navan because of cut backs in the hospital with the result that there is a woman for who all intense and purposes is virtually dying. They called other hospitals, Cavan refused because she is so ill and no where seems to have a bed in Dublin....Where is the ************************************ sense in the world.

Wasnt going to post this but saw the thread on Navan hospital....

I have to sit back and watch my father cry and become upset as his mother lays in a hospital bed in Navan hospital on her death bed because they cant find a hospital bed.......
