Staff levels are key to addressing hospital overcrowding crisis

As a practising nurse of many years' experience, I feel I must comment on the recent article by Dr Brendan O' Shea (Irish Independent, January 11).
I was appalled at his suggestion that patients on trolleys in emergency departments should be moved to wards to alleviate overcrowding.
He further suggests that zero tolerance for moving these patients by nursing staff is akin to "playing silly industrial relations games".
