Just 16 percent of patients over the age of 75 attending Sligo Emergency Department last month were admitted in under 6 hours.
New figures from the Saolta Hospital Group show the length of the patient experience time on attending the historically busy ED.
The figures were released to Sligo Councillor Donal Gilroy at a meeting of the Western Health Forum yesterday.
According to the Saolta Hospital group 12 percent of elderly patients were left on trolleys or waiting elsewhere in wards at SUH for over 24 hours in April.
16 percent of patients in that age range were seen within 6 hours, with 32 percent admitted in 9 hours.
On the other side of the age spectrum, 67 percent of under 15s were admitted to the hospital in 6 hours, with only point five of a percent waiting over a day for a bed.
Overall patient experience figures show that the majority of those attending the Sligo ED were seen within the first day with 9 percent waiting on trolleys or in the ward over 24 hours.
