A patient with cystic fibrosis reveals frustration in two and a half commandments at the opening of the Beaumont Hospital


A student with cystic fibrosis told about frustration at the age of two and a half years in the hospital unit building.

Matthew Dempsey said that the lack of a special facility for patients at the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin is a major barrier to treatment.

Twenty years old, he added, "There are four or five placental cystic fibrosis in St Paul's department and I know it's difficult to separate, but people with cystic fibrosis should be separated.

"It's why it's less than ideal in the same compartment with other people with respiratory illnesses."

At the hospital, there are currently only seven beds for patients with cystic fibrosis.

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

However, currently 160 patients have access to services at the Beaumont Hospital.

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

Matthew Dempsey said that the lack of a dedicated unit for patients with CF is a major barrier to treatment.

"At least five minutes must be air circulation to prevent infections, but nothing is.

"We have our outpatient unit, but it's very small. The hospital unit is the largest part."

Matthew, who was diagnosed when he was four years old, followed a rigorous daily plan of medicine and treatment that often can not be socialized.

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

"There are about two hours of treatment as well as at the top, and then a check of the chest as well."

Cystic fibrosis, Ireland, head of Philip Watt, said that the hospital unit's delay was "completely unacceptable".

He added, "The reason why these rooms are so important is not only that they are needed for care but also the place where people are dying.

"This is the last part of the puzzle of cystic fibrosis in terms of services in Ireland."

Mr Watt said that the fault between the facility and the government was "frustrating."

He added: "In fact, the concern for patients is delayed.

"So instead of going to the hospital immediately, the situation worsened.

"They have to wait days and sometimes weeks before they take them."
