Deputy Eugene Murphy says he was shocked at the level of abuse and aggression directed at staff in the Emergency Department of a Dublin hospital which he witnessed recently.

The Roscommon / Galway Fianna Fail TD was treated overnight recently in St James’s Hospital in Dublin for a minor health issue and was taken aback by the level of abuse towards doctors, nurses, porters and security staff.

He says he witnessed similar incidents some years ago when his late father was a patient at University Hospital Galway, and he is calling on his Dail colleagues to introduce legislation to address the problem.

Speaking to Midwest News today he said the situation is appalling and is simply not acceptable and must be addressed.
