Twitter 53 patients waiting for beds at UHL University Hospital LimerickTHE University of Limerick Hospitals Group has been unable to fill job vacancies for 24 consultants and 70 nurses, it has been claimed this week.As as its flagship facility at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) again topped the national league for overcrowding, the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has said that a lack of nurses is at the heart of the problem.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Ireland’s emergency departments are at least 216 nurses short of what is needed to care for patients, according to HSE figures obtained by the INMO at the Workplace Relations Commission this week.The HSE confirmed that there are 159 unfilled vacancies and an additional 57 nurses are needed to care for patients admitted from emergency departments for whom there are no available beds.70 of these unfilled nursing posts are in the University of Limerick Hospitals Group which comprises of UHL, St John’s, the Regional Maternity and Croom orthopaedic hospitals in Limerick as well as district hospitals in Ennis and NenaghMeanwhile, Limerick Sinn Fein TD Maurice Quinlivan has raised serious concerns about figures released by the HSE which show there are 349 vacant consultant posts in hospitals across the whole State including 24 at UHL.“The figures released in response to a Parliamentary Question show that in some areas and hospitals, the vacancy rates are beyond worrying,” he said.“There are 24 vacant consultant posts at the University of Limerick Hospital Group, mainly in Dooradoyle, and some of them in extremely important specialities such as Emergency Medicine.“The HSE has tried every way to get around this problem, including employing doctors who are not on the specialist register as consultants and employing locum/agency consultants; but papering over the cracks and short-term solutions are not working”.In response to a query from the Limerick Post, a HSE spokeswoman said: “Each year, staffing requirements form part of the estimates process at UL Hospitals Group and resources allocated are based on the funding provided.“Our 2018 Operational Plan sets out the type and volume of health care services to be provided throughout the year, including staffing, having regard for the available funding.“Since 2016, UL Hospitals Group has employed an additional 15 consultants and we are actively recruiting for consultants to fill open posts. Three consultants are due to start with the group over the coming weeks with 11 posts at various stages of the recruitment process and other posts going through the approval process”.Meanwhile, the INMO says that the figures show that the worst July overcrowding since they started their recording process and University Hospital Limerick topped the table, with 897 patients waiting for beds after being admitted through the emergency department.The union says that “low pay and bad working conditions make it near-impossible to recruit and retain sufficient nurses in emergency departments”.In a separate statement, a hospital spokeswoman said: “The emergency department at UHL is one of the busiest in the country and the numbers presenting continues to increase year on year.“Attendance numbers in 2018 have increased by 8.4 per cent compared to 2017. This represents an additional 3,148 patients who have attended the emergency department so far this year compared to the same period in 2017.“Of those presenting, the numbers requiring admission include many frail elderly patients with complex care needs.“This has added additional pressure for beds across all our sites. We regret that any of our patients have to face long waits in our emergency department during busy periods and any distress or inconvenience this causes to patients and their loved ones”.“While patients still face delays in the new emergency department, it provides for a much-improved patient experience compared to the old department and has improved the privacy, safety and dignity for many of our patients.“Additional nursing resources have been provided to ensure patients receive the appropriate care while in the emergency department,” the spokeswoman concluded.Read more health news here.

Home » News » Tenant fees ban will increase churn in rental market, it is claimed previous nextRegulation & LawTenant fees ban will increase churn in rental market, it is claimedResearch by lettings platform Goodlord points to more activity as the ban releases renters from the financial cost of moving.Nigel Lewis12th April 201901,566 Views The tenant fees ban will lead to more people moving home when it reduces the cost of renting a property by 50%, it has been claimed.Rental platform Goodlord says the ban, along with the rise of tenancy deposit alternatives and the reduction of deposits to five weeks’ rent, will cut the cost of moving home for renters significantly.The proptech firm has analysed 30,000 tenancies processed by its platform and found that the average cost of moving to a rented property is £3,039.This includes the first month’s rent of £1,092, a rent deposit of £1,442 based on six weeks’ rent, fees of £209 and a refundable holding fee of £296.“Capitalising on this potential increase in demand will be vital to survive – or thrive – in what will be a challenging period for agencies,” says Goodlord.“So agencies will need to ensure they’re well-equipped to handle an increase in enquiries and applications to secure the best tenants for their landlords as efficiently as possible.”ARLA President Peter Savage (left) has also said that many agents will find it easier to cope with the ban than they thought.“Those that have taken the time to look at their bottom lines are finding that they are able to make up the loss more easily than they first thought because until now they haven’t had to quantify it,” he has said in a blog.Savage also says that holding or ‘goodwill’ deposits are to become widespread across the industry as agents protect themselves against tenants who may fail referencing. goodlord tenancy deposit alternatives Peter Savage tenant fees ban fees ban April 12, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Until now, achieving information gathering meant entering information via keyboard, voice or video. Now, we are embarking on a world of ‘sensor data’ and it suits consumers.More and more, bank and credit union customers prefer to bank wherever they are, using their smartphones, tablets or wearables as the remote control for their financial management. If consumers are using mobile-connected devices to streamline their to-dos, then what is next for these tiny, mobile computers? Proving their continued benefit for banks and financial institutions.For example, the Apple Watch puts sensors into the wrist of every user – stockbrokers will overlay their heart rate data on top of their trade data. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

“Each state is insisting they are in charge of gaming and betting while the National Lottery Regulatory Commission is also saying that they are the ones in charge. So who do we pay to? Do we pay twice? It’s a major reason why we convened this summit,” observed the ANB chief at the summit.Alabi insisted that by the time these double taxations are added to the company taxes that the operators of sports betting companies pay, the magnitude of the problems being faced can be imagined.“So, it’s strangulating our businesses coupled with forex issues. So we need to be sure who we pay to avoid these double taxations currently killing our business,” Alabi pleaded.“In an industry that is not coordinated and regulated, there are bound to be charlatans all over the place, running away with people’s money. But if it’s regulated, people pay their taxes and there are good financial standings, the public will have confidence in us and want to do business with us,” Alabi added.“It’s a growing industry; we’ve been noticed and we can’t hide again. Everybody knows something is going on there but it’s like we are sitting on a keg of gunpowder. One day if we don’t come together and nurture the industry, things might not go on well,” he warned.Also speaking at the summit, the Managing Director of Surebet247.com, Sheriff Olaniyan, also lamented on the matter of double taxation but remained hopeful that since regulators of the industry were well represented at the summit, solution are likely to be found for the problem.“Double taxation is a critical issue that we must tackle for the industry to move forward. If we do this (summit) every year, it’s going to be a major step forward in the industry. With the way the federal and state officials are tackling the issue of double taxation, I believe we can have a single tax payment solution,” he noted with optimism.While revealing the benefits that are inherent is a well regulated sports betting industry, Olaniyan agreed that the Nigerian experience is a growing one.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Operators of the sports betting companies in the country rose from a stakeholders’ summit in Lagos at the weekend, calling on both the federal and state governments to do something on the double taxation currently strangulating the sector.The summit organised by the Association of Nigerian Bookmakers (ANB) at the Sheraton Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos, had top stakeholders in the gaming and betting industry, which included the operators, players, police, tax experts, Inland Revenue service officials, regulators at state and federal levels and licensed agents within and outside Lagos in attendance.Acting Chairman of ANB, Akin Alabi, who also doubles as the founder of NairaBet.com, insisted that operators of the sports betting industry were in dilemma over whom to pay taxes.

Governor Ron DeSantis is backing Florida lawmakers’ attempts to lift NCAA rules that prevent college athletes from signing endorsement deals and profiting from their athleticism.DeSantis joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers and former Florida State University football players on Thursday to announce his support.The proposed legislation introduced by House Democratic Leader Kionne McGhee is reportedly modeled after California legislation that is set to take effect in 2023.If the bill is signed into Florida law, it is expected to go into effect on July 1.The NCAA opposes the legislation citing it blurs the lines between big-money professional sports and amateur college athletics.It’s unclear at this time how either of the state’s laws would coincide with the current NCAA because it is not a government body and still be able to have its own rules independent of state laws.
