HSE Response re. Beds at Louth County Hospital

The HSE can confirm that beds recently re-opened in Louth County
Hospital under SDU funding are not closing.

A number of patients in the hospital’s stepdown and rehabilitation
service  are due  to be discharged  over the next few days  to spend
time at home with their families over Christmas.

Patients who are remaining in the hospital are being centralised into
a number of wards to ensure safe and efficient services remain in
place in the hospital over the Christmas period.

Similar to previous years, a number of service curtailments are
scheduled at Louth County Hospital over Christmas.
