A patient with cystic fibrosis detects frustration at a delay of two and a half years in the opening of the Beaumont Hospital


A student with cystic fibrosis said about frustration in the discharge of two and a half years in the hospital building.

Matthews Dempsei said that the lack of a dedicated facility for sick people at the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin was a major barrier to treatment.

The twenty-year-old added: "There are four or five crystalline fibrosis at St. Paul's Department, and I know it's difficult to separate, but the thing is that people with cystic fibrosis must be separated.

"So, being in the same department with other people with respiratory illness is less than ideal."

There are currently only seven beds for patients with cystic fibrosis in the hospital.

European standards dictate that there should be one person with a condition for every 10 beds.

But there are currently 160 access to services at the Beaumont Hospital.

Matthev, from Rahney, North Dublin, said: "Staff and people are fantastic, but objects are not.

Matthews Dempsey said that the lack of a dedicated unit for CF patients was a major obstacle to the application of treatment.

"The air should be circulated every five minutes to prevent the infection of any of it.

"We have our clinic, but that's very little. The hospital unit is the largest part."

Matej, who was diagnosed when he was four, followed a strict daily plan of drugs and treatments, often unable to socialize.

He said: "I take three different nebulizers, 10 different tablets and a permanent antibiotic.

"There's also about two hours of a physiotherapist, and then an examination of the chest."

Ciscic Fibrosis, chief of Ireland Philip Vatt, said the delay in the hospital's unit was "completely unacceptable".

He added: "The reason why these rooms are so important not only are needed for care, but also where people die.

"It's the last piece of puzzle with cystic fibrosis in terms of service in Ireland."

The organization is trying to get a hospital in Beaumont Hospital over the past eight years,

Mr Watts said that the crime between the facility and the government was "frustrating."

He added: "It basically postpones patient care.

"Instead of going to the hospital immediately, their condition worsens.

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