HIQA probes hospital's A&E

STAFF, patients and their family members will be interviewed by a high-powered investigation team announced yesterday by the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) to examine the emergency department at Tallaght Hospital in Dublin.

The team will investigate the quality of care, safety and management of the department.

HIQA announced the investigation last month following an inquest into the death of a patient treated in the emergency department. The report will then be published.
