A & E Pushed to the Limits

Since December, the A & E department of the Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital has registered a large influx of patients, and today is no exception.

Local newspaper, JM, reported that today had been another incredibly busy day for health professionals as people arrived in droves, all needing health assistance.

The clinical director of SESARAM, Júlio Nóbrega, assured reporters that solutions have already been triggered to ensure the safety and quality of medical care provided within the emergency department.

As already reported on one day alone in December, A & E staff dealt with 500 people in need of treatment.
