This upswing has continued to impact on patient flow in UHL at a time when significant numbers of unwell patients are attending the hospital’s Emergency Department. “We are sorry that any patient admitted to our hospitals faces a long wait time for a bed. We work to ensure that all patients continue to receive expert medical care while they wait, Between 8am last Wednesday, and 8am this Wednesday, August 8, there was a daily average attendance of 184 patients at the ED. Attendances fell over the weekend (134 on Saturday, 151 on Sunday and 145 on Bank Holiday Monday), but this was preceded by a daily attendance rate in excess of 200 last Wednesday (207), Thursday (204) and Friday (214). Following the significant reduction in emergency presentations during the Covid-19 pandemic (levels for March and April 2020 were 144 and 154 respectively), current weekday attendances at the ED frequently surpass 200. Average daily ED presentations for 2019 were 195. “Patients were waiting in individual bays, on beds or trolleys. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been no patients on trolleys on corridors in the hospital’s general wards.“Having created capacity for the anticipated Covid-19 surge during March by deferring almost all elective activity, we are now gradually and carefully resuming scheduled care, prioritising care for the sickest patients first. Where patients can safely be seen virtually, this is being facilitated.As part of the Covid precautions, non-Covid patients were diverted to the Acute Surgical Assessment Unit or Acute Medical Unit, “meaning we have effectively been operating three EDs in recent months,” the spokesman said.As part of the drive to bring down the numbers waiting for trauma surgery, the hospital has called in theatre nurses from Ennis and other hospitals in the group so that more theatre time can be offered to patients. As well as identifying patients who can are discharged and treated in the community by specialist teams, the hospital is using the Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) at the University of Limerick. As as of Tuesday morning there were 28 patients being cared for in the facility. Capacity can be further increased in line with demand.center_img Previous articleMunster confirm academy player has tested positive for COVID-19Next articleLimerick Senior Football Championship Preview Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

Sale and Consumption of Liquor is a Privilege Granted By The State For Which Special Fee Can Be Imposed: Delhi Govt Informs Delhi HC [Read Affidavit]

The information has been given under an affidavit in a PIL filed by Praveen Gulati challenging the decision of the Delhi Government to impose a Special Corona fee of 70% on the sale of liquor. ‘There’s an element of privilege vis-a-vis the sale/dealing in liquor or for that matter the consumption of liquor, which the State is free to accord or regulate as per the State Excise law. Accordingly, State is also free to impose and recover a price for grant of such privilege’, the affidavit states. Such grant of privilege for the sale/consumption/regulation of liquor, the affidavit submits, can be done through subordinate legislation or administrative orders. The Special Corona fee, which has been imposed during the unprecedented circumstances posed by the COVID19, is nothing but a combination of price towards the grant of privilege and the cost of regulation/supervision. The affidavit also highlights that apart from Delhi, 10 other States have also imposed a similar levy on alcohol. While highlighting that sections 26 and 28 of the Delhi Excise Act do not apply to the present case, the affidavit submits that the MRP of liquor is not being raised and the same is only being used as the basis for calculating the amount of the present Special Corona fee. In the present PIL, the Petitioner has argued that the bare reading of the said Section 26 does not contemplate generating revenue under a new category of ‘Special Corona Fee’. It is further submitted by the Petitioner that the government wrongfully invoked section 81 of the Delhi Excise Act to charge this new fee. It is claimed that section 81(2)(g) is merely a procedural and regulatory provision which derives its powers from the other substantive provisions of the Act. Since neither section 26 nor Rules 152 and 154 provide for any such category, the Petitioner submits, the Delhi Government cannot invoke section 81 to generate revenue under the head of ‘Special Corona Fee.’Click Here To Download Affidavit[Read Affidavit] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Moustapha Diagne, former Class of 2015 signee, has not had eligibility ruled on by the NCAA

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Class of 2015 signee Moustapha Diagne has not had his eligibility confirmed on by the NCAA, per a report by the New Jersey Herald, and he accepted a visa from a junior college on Thursday, his deadline to be enrolled in a college.“He needed to accept a visa from a junior college (Thursday),” Diagne’s basketball coach at Pope John XXIII Regional (New Jersey) High School, Jason Hasson, said to the New Jersey Herald. “So, that was the way we went.”Diagne’s eligibility is in question because of a class he took in Senegal, where he’s from, before coming to the United States in 2012. Hasson would not release the name of the school Diagne enrolled in for this fall to the New Jersey Herald but said Diagne will be going to the junior college on a full scholarship.Diagne was part of a class Jim Boeheim reportedly said would be the best recruiting class Syracuse has ever had. The rest of the class includes forward Tyler Lydon and guards Malachi Richardson and Frank Howard, ranked 69th, 29th and 86th by Scout.com, respectively, in the Class of 2015. Diagne, a power forward, was ranked 82nd in the Class of 2015.Diagne had been visiting his family in Senegal for the first time since 2012, David Wilder, his host father, told Scout.com in early July. At the time, Wilder also added that Diagne fully expected to be on campus.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It had nothing to do with his Pope John transcript; he did very well at Pope John, he was a very good student,” Hasson said to the New Jersey Herald. “It was just a question about a class he took over there (in Senegal). One single class.” Comments Related Stories Moustapha Diagne, Class of 2015 signee, will not enroll at Syracusecenter_img Published on August 23, 2015 at 9:29 am Contact Chris: cjlibona@syr.edu | @ChrisLibonatilast_img read more
