The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) has revealed the most overcrowded hospitals in Ireland throughout the month of April.
At the top of the list was Cork University Hospital which had 658 people on trolleys, followed by University Hospital Limerick with 649.
Completing the top five were South Tipperary General Hospital (493), the Mater Hospital in Dublin (437) and University Hospital Galway (410).
In total, 7,199 patients spent time on trolleys awaiting inpatient beds throughout April which is a 12% decrease compared with the same month in 2016.
In contrast, 36,043 patients waited on trolleys from January to March 2017, which is 1% for the same period last year.
The new figures have been released ahead of the annual INMO conference, which begins in Wexford today.
