The Irish Nurses Organisation says that the number of patients on trolleys at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda has reached a record high.
The INO claims that 40 people are waiting for in-patient beds, 15 of whom have been on trolleys since Friday night.
The patients are being cared for in the Emergency Department, Out-patients Department and in corridors.
The INO also says that ambulances are being delayed at the hospital due to a shortage of trolleys.
