TALLAGHT University Hospital features in an RTE Investigates feature length documentary due to air on Tuesday night, February 9.

In a statement released, RTE Investigates, which filmed at TUH during the peak of the pandemic in January, said: “Going behind-the-scenes, the documentary reveals patients and staff confronting what is, for many, the greatest challenge of their lives. 

“The increased spread of the virus during December left hospitals facing a massive spike in the number of cases requiring critical care.

“By mid-January ICUs were full with many hospitals forced to use their surge capacity, in Tallaght University Hospital some operating theatres were converted into ICU wards."
