Covid Response: Deirdre Gleeson. Emergency RANP. University of Limerick Hospitals Group. IAANMP Secretary.

“There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet” William Fredrick Halsey.

In response to the Covid19 Crisis and in preparation for surge capacity management within the ED , the Emergency RANP Team in ULHG have relocated and are providing full ANP cover throughout the three Injury Units within the Emergency Care Network. This allows for effective streaming of injuries and conditions suitable to be managed by ANPs away from the ED.This has allowed me to continue to offer high quality, safe and efficient care for this cohort of Patients in an environment that instills confidence and encourages attendance for treatment.
