Hospital overcrowding reached record levels last month, with over 10,200 patients waiting on a bed.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation says it's an 8 per cent increase on this time last year and a 125 percent increase on the same month in 2006 when records began.

The worst hit hospital was University Hospital Limerick where more than a thousand people were waiting for a bed.

Also worst hit was Cork University Hospital with 826 patients on trolleys, University Hospital Galway had 638 people, South Tipperary General had 623 and Tallaght University Hospital had 566 patients waiting on a bed.

The INMO says it has no confidence in the Health Minister or the HSE to tackle hospital overcrowding.
