Patient with cystic fibrosis reveals dissatisfaction with two and a half years of delay in the Beaumont Hospital


A student with cystic fibrosis has expressed dissatisfaction with two and a half years of delay in the construction of a fixed unit.

Matthew Dempsey said the lack of a Hospital for Beaumont Hospital in Dublin has been a major barrier to receiving treatment.

The 20-year-old added, "St. Paul's ward has four or five cystic fibrosis beds, and I know it's hard to isolate, but it's important that people with cystic fibrosis be segregated.

"Because the same care with other people with respiratory diseases is less than ideal."

At present, there are only seven beds in cystic fibrosis patients in a hospital.

European standards stipulate that there should be one person subject to the condition of every 10 places.

But there are currently 160 who access Beaumont Hospital services.

Matthew, from Raheny North Dublin, said: "The staff and people are fantastic, but there is no way.

Matthew Dempsey said that the lack of a special unit for CF patients is a major barrier to receiving treatment.

"Every five minutes air pollution needs to be spread to prevent contamination.

"We have our outpatient unit, but it's very small. A stationary unit is most."

Matthew, who was diagnosed when he was four, followed a rigorous daily drug and treatment plan, I often can not socialize.

He said: "I use three different sprayers, 10 different pills and a permanent antibiotic.

"There are about two hours of physiology, and above, and then an overview of the chest."

Cystic fibrosis Ireland's chief Philip Watt said that blocking a unit unit was "completely unacceptable."

He added: "The reason why these numbers are so important is not only those who need care, but it is also the place where people die.

"This is the last piece of cystic fibrosis in the jigsaw of a service in Ireland."

Ambulances outside the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin,

In the past eight years, this organization has been trying to get a hospital in Beaumont Hospital.

Mr Watt said that the guilty game between the machine and the government was "frustrating."

He added: "This mainly impedes patient care.

"Instead of getting to hospital immediately, their condition deteriorates.

"They have to wait for days and sometimes weeks before they are admitted."
