Last week two nurses lost their lives while driving home from work.
Kerrie Browne, a 26-year-old nurse working at University Hospital Kerry in Tralee, died in a road traffic collision Wednesday morning. It is understood she was on her way home after finishing her night shift when the accident occurred on the N21 at Meenleitrim, Castleisland.
The news comes only hours after the death of another young nurse, Laurie Jones, from Wales.
Tributes to both the young nurses have filled social media alongside calls for health services to take urgent action to ensure there are no more deaths. One registered nurse said; “Sometimes I am so tired I don’t remember how I get home”.
