Most patients could have avoided emergency department

first_imgUniversity Hospital Limerick in Dooradoyle. Pic Emma Jervis / Press 22UP TO 83 per cent of patients who presented to the emergency department at University Hospital Limerick on one day in September could have been dealt with at other assessment units within the hospital group.A study carried out on September 11 by the University Hospital Limerick Group (ULHG) found that the majority of the 171 patients who came to the emergency department could have been seen at another assessment unit or clinic if these had all been operating at peak efficiency.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Prof Paul Finucane, chief academic officer at the ULHG said: “We looked at patients admitted over a 24-hour period on that day. We had 171 patients who came to the emergency department over that period. Of those we estimated that 17 per cent needed to be there and the other 83 per cent in theory could have been sorted out elsewhere if the facilities were available.“For example if all three medical assessment units — the acute assessment unit, the surgical assessment unit, the local injuries unit — and the rapid access and outpatient clinics, if all these were operating at peak efficiency, then theoretically 83 per cent of all those who presented at the emergency department  that day could have been seen elsewhere.”Prof Finucane revealed that plans are in place to develop the assessment units further to help ease the burden on the emergency department.Meanwhile, the hospital group launched its Winter Resilience Plan this week.UL Hospitals Group chief executive Prof Colette Cowan, revealed that 54 additional beds are due to be made available at the hospital by November.A ward that had been closed for refurbishments will be reopened, freeing up 24 beds, while a further 30 new beds will come on stream.In addition, a new stroke/neurological unit and a dedicated unit for patients with Cystic Fibrosis are also set to open next month.The units are located at the new Leben Building and have been funded by the JP McManus Pro-Am Committee and voluntary organisations TLC4CF, the Mid West branch of the Parkinson’s Association of Ireland and the Mid-Western Hospitals Development Trust.“Our winter resilience plan, which covers October to March, is about better proofing our organisation against the surges in activity we typically see over the winter period,” commented Prof Cowan.She added that the plan sets out a defined set of actions to be taken by all staff according to a colour-coded alert and escalation system.“It provides a clear understanding for our staff of what to do in every department and service area. It goes further than simply consolidating existing plans and includes a number of important initiatives and specific measures to cope with the increasing number of frail, elderly patients in need of care at this time of year,” she explained.The HSE is also advising patients to visit the emergency department only when necessary and go to their GP or Shannondoc in the first instance.

The matter will be listed after Christmas vacations.The development comes after a High Court Division Bench led by Justice Rakesh Kumar rejected an application filed by the State Government seeking recall of the said order.The State of Andhra Pradesh approached the top court challenging the order passed by the High Court on December 14 refusing to recall the October 1 order passed by the bench to examine the breakdown of constitutional machinery in the state.Background”I’m not allowing anyone to challenge my order in front of me…one may go to Supreme Court,” the Justice Rakesh Kumar had remarked during the course of hearing of the State’s recall application.The Advocate General, Subrahmanyam Sriram, complained that the bench had proceeded to reject the application without providing him adequate opportunity to present the case. He submitted that he wanted to cite certain precedents that allows a Judge to recall his own order but the Court did not allow him to complete his submissions.The AG had raised objection regarding the jurisdiction of the Court to deal with the question of “constitutional breakdown” and urged the bench to treat it as a preliminary issue.On October 1, the bench, also including Justice Uma Devi, had converted the hearing on a batch of habeas corpus petitions and petitions alleging police excesses as a hearing on the issue whether there is a “constitutional breakdown” in the State of Andhra Pradesh.It had directed the government counsel to make submissions on whether the court can record a finding that there is Constitutional breakdown “in the light of the circumstances which are prevailing in the State of AP.”Responding to this, the State had filed an application for recall, while highlighting that in the absence of any pleadings in the writ petition, the court may not examine the issue regarding failure of constitutional breakdown in the state.Rejecting the application on Monday, the bench observed :”On 1/10/2020 when the present PIL was taken up with other 16 cases the Court noted that on a number of occasions there was “illegal picking up of persons by police” and after filing habeas corpus either they were being remanded or released.The Court had summoned the DGP who gave assurance that instructions will be given to the Police personnel to follow all the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in DK Basu case and other amendments that followed the pronouncement.Though assurance was given by the DGP, rampantly such excesses by police were going on and this court also noticed that after passing the judicial order, the High Court was attacked on social media by number of persons including one member of Parliament belonging to the party in power…This court had asked that State counsel may come prepared on the point as too whether in the circumstances which are prevailing, court can record a finding whether there is Constitutional breakdown.The State counsel participated on number of days in present proceedings, even thereafter no objection was raised and now the present IA is filed with prayer to recall the earlier order (dated October 1).This Court is of the view that if a party is aggrieved by an order of the court, it cannot be allowed to question the same before the same court. There was no embargo on the State to approach the superior court, but they continued to appear before us only with a view to drag the matter. Therefore, we reject the present application for recall.”At this juncture, Government Pleader, Senior Advocate SS Prasad pointed out that it was wrong to say that he dragged the matter for several days as on each of the hearing, the Court had recorded that proceedings were subject to hearing on the question of constitutional breakdown.SS Prasad argued that correct facts and docket proceedings are not being recorded.Govt contests court’s power to suo moto examine constitutional breakdownGovt Pleader SS Prasad submitted that the Court lacks jurisdiction to consider the suo moto question regarding constitutional breakdown of the State machinery. He submitted that the term ‘constitutional breakdown of State machinery’ used in Article 356 is not defined and as per previous judgments, the same occurs when there is political turmoil, judicial anarchy or legislative failure in the State.Prasad also submitted that the present petition does not raise any question regarding breakdown of state machinery and the Court should refrain from expanding the scope of hearings. Reliance was placed on AIR 1988 SC 1883, Kehar Singh v. State of Delhi, where it was held as under:”This Court has frequently emphasized that the decision of the Court should be confined to the narrow points directly raised before it. There should not be any exposition of the law at large and outside the range of facts of the case. There should not be even obiter observations in regard to questions not directly involved in the case. These principles are more relevant particularly when we are dealing with constitutional questions. I should not transgress these limits.”Justice Rakesh Kumar was transferred from Patna High Court to Andhra Pradesh High Court last year. Shortly before his transfer to AP High Court, Justice Rakesh Kumar had created a furore in the Patna High Court by passing a direction for CBI investigation into alleged corruption in the subordinate judiciary. In that order, Justice Rakesh Kumar had made startling observations such as “corruption in this High Court is an open secret” and that “judges were more interested in enjoying privileges than administering justice”.Soon after that order, a 11-judge bench assembled to suspend it after observing that Justice Kumar’s observations as “judicial and administrative overreach”. The High Court and the State Government are seemingly on a collision course. Last month, the Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had shot off a letter to the Chief Justice of India alleging that few judges of the High Court were trying to destabilize the government by passing adverse orders against it on petitions filed by the TPD, the political opposition.The High Court has ordered a status quo on the three-capital decision and has stayed the SIT inquiry announced by the government into Amaravati land scam.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

He was 76.Okerlund stood next to the likes of Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Andre the Giant, the Ultimate Warrior and many others from the mid- to late-1980s and teed up the stars of that era to deliver some of their most memorable promos. In the mid-1990s, Okerlund moved to rival WCW and stood in the ring as garbage rained down upon Hogan as he formed the nWo.“A voice and soundtrack to an entire era of our industry. He was the star of some of WWE’s most memorable segments,” WWE executive vice president Paul “Triple H” Levesque said on Twitter on Wednesday. “‘Mean Gene’ was beloved by all who got to work with him.
