THE HSE is establishing a temporary storage facility and has allayed fears over the supply of vital personal protective equipment in Letterkenny.
A fire raged through a HSE storage unit at Lisnennan after a blaze broke out at the neighbouring Watson Hire.
Large numbers of of wheelchairs, hospital beds, nebulisers and the county’s supply of PPE were lost.
“Letterkenny University Hospital currently has an adequate supply of PPE and continues to receive deliveries to the hospital directly a number of times a week,” a HSE statement said.
“Sligo stores will dispatch all Community PPE this week to Donegal. There is no lack of supply of PPE to either Donegal Community Services or Letterkenny University Hospital. All deliveries will continue as normal, as contingency plans have been put in place.”
A temporary storage facility is to be established at The Vestry building in the grounds of St Conal’s Hospital.
The HSE is carrying out its own assessment of the situation.Tags:
