Cutbacks, pressure, stress . . . no family deserves excuses
I WAS really upset this week when I heard about the ESBL contamination in Crumlin Hospital – both professionally as a doctor, but also personally as a mother.
I have trained and worked in hospitals in Ireland and abroad in France, the USA, and Australia, and I can hand on heart say that I believe we produce some of the best frontline healthcare staff anywhere in the world.
It was instilled in us as students and Non-Consultant Hospital Doctors that a thorough system of checks and balances was essential in providing expert healthcare.
