INMO slams 'hazardous' staffing levels at St Finbarr's Hospital in Cork

Staffing levels at St Finbarr's Hospital in Cork have been described as "hazardous".

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation says a HSE directive has forced management to cut agency staff, and patient care will suffer.

The union says around 11 more nurses are needed to maintain safe care and dignity for residents at the hospital.
