HEALTH MINISTER APOLOGIES TO FAMILIES FOLLOWING BABY DEATHS
The Health Minister is apologising to the families of the four babies who died at the Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise.
James Reilly says he found the television documentary on the cases upsetting, disturbing and shocking.
He says he will take whatever actions need to be taken arising from the report that he has requested into the incidents.
Minister Reilly says people were dealt with in a dehumanising nature and he says given what he’s seen – he won’t find any explanation acceptable.
