The INMO say it's an ongoing problem.

Nurses are having sleepless nights worrying about the standard of care being provided at a local hospital.

That's according to Neal Donohue from the INMO who was responding to concerns of overcrowding at Sligo University Hospital.

41 patients are currently waiting on a bed at the Northwest facility down from 50 yesterday and the nurses and midwives representative believes something drastic must be done to relief pressure on staff.

He claims the conditions nurses are facing is worrying with the local hospital finding it difficult to retain nurses.

Speaking to Let's Talk earlier Neal says there are serious issues being raised at the hospital

''We've been sounding the alarm in Sligo University Hospital and in other areas but we're desperately concerned for the conditions that our members are working in. We're very concerned about the standards of care because they're reporting potential delayed care, potential miscare, potential adverse outcomes for the patients. And this isn't just an ED issue this is reflected right across the hospital, the figures that we see in the emergency department are just a symptom of a greater problem but we're hearing reports right across the hospital that words are overcrowded.''
