Re-opening of Libraries’
Following the Covid-19 closures and redeployments of library staff we are pleased to be starting the phased reopening of some of our library sites.
For the safety of staff and library users and to comply with government recommendations and HSE guidelines there will be some changes to the way we operate. Here are the main points you need to know:
- Maximum capacity: numbers of people occupying the library will be capped (details will be displayed at library entrances)
- Physical distancing : will be strictly observed and 2m distance must be maintained, so desk and face to face services will be limited
- Maximum time (2 hours): To comply with confined space safeguards for staff and library users after any two hours of occupancy the library must close and/or all staff and users must vacate
- Hygiene: Hand hygiene, cough and sneeze etiquette and sanitation practices will be strictly observed
- Book Borrowing : There will no open access to library shelves in most library sites. ‘Click & collect’ service only. Library users will be expected to place a hold on items they want to borrow using the library catalogue and will be notified by email when they are available to collect from their local library. It will only be possible to place requests on items in your home library (the library your account is based at) and only where your site is indicated as open and available for click & collect service (as below). Books should be returned in book return boxes only and returned items will be quarantined on return.
- Computers / Photocopiers: Library users are encouraged to use their own devices where possible. Access to computers and photocopiers may be restricted and library users are expected to wipe machines with disinfectant wipes provided after use
- Entry/ Exit : One-way systems will be in operation at some sites and library users are asked to be observant of signage
Virtual Library Services
Library users are encouraged to use virtual services where possible and make in-person library visits only when necessary.
To supplement the physical libraries and accommodate reduced onsite capacity new virtual services have been introduced.
- LiBot, the chatbot virtual assistant: Is active on all pages of the HSE Library website providing 24/7 response. LiBot provides quick answers to standard questions and directs to resources. Use the chat button on the bottom of the page to open LiBot
- Virtual Desk – Live sessions: The live Virtual Desk is open for assigned hours Monday – Friday and staffed by HSE Library staff. Live enquiry and chat sessions with library staff are facilitated. Virtual Desk staff respond or resolve queries in real time or refer the query on to another member of the NHLKS team via a ticketing function. Visit the virtual desk HERE (or use the tab on the side of the page).
- FAQ Answers / Submit a query: When the Virtual Desk is not available, a detailed FAQ knowledge base is available or questions can be submitted online which will be added as tickets in the LibAnswers system and assigned to a member of library staff to resolve
Healthcare workers Flu vaccinations
The HSE will actively encourage all healthcare staff to get the flu vaccinations to support a higher uptake and increased resistance to the flu amongst healthcare workers.
Update on Screening Programmes
Screening pause background. The National Screening Service (NSS) is planning a phased restart of its screening programmes in July 2020. The programmes will restart as follows:
- CervicalCheck will begin sending invites and reminders to participants in its cervical screening programme on July 06.
- Diabetic RetinaScreen will also resume screening in July.
- BreastCheck will resume screening in September/October.
- BowelScreen will resume in September/October.
Programme restart plans
The programmes were paused in March 2020 on Public Health advice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, people who were in the screening system at time of pause have continued to be assessed and treated as resources allow. Invitations and reminders for people who are now overdue screening will be sent on a phased basis, in line with programme prioritisation. In the case of cervical screening, this means that invitations and reminders will be first sent to people who are overdue a non-routine repeat screening. The recommencement of screening is underpinned by the assumption that there will be no worsening of the COVID-19 situation & restrictions will continue to ease. Provided all key conditions remain safe for participants and staff, on a monthly basis invitation will be sent to individuals overdue a routine screening. Existing appointments and invitations. Screening will look different when we restart. In order to ensure a safe restart, we will be taking measures to protect both participants and staff and monitoring the restart to ensure their continuing safety. For this reason, we will be unable to screen people at the same level as pre-COVID-19. We will continue to follow Public Health guidelines and will adapt our planning accordingly. The health and safety of our participants continues to be our top priority at this time. We will also be ensuring all parts of the system have sufficient capacity to process the volume of tests during the restart period, as blockages could result in delayed test results for participants. The BreastCheck static units are continuing to assist the symptomatic service delivery for their host hospitals, and prioritising patients with a known high grade/aggressive cancer. BresatCheck mobile units are being reconditioned to meet infection control and physical distancing standards ahead of breast screening restarting. BowelScreen is continuing to investigate options to ensure capacity is available for treatment when issuing of screening kits recommences. Follow -up clinics are still being held where it is possible to do so and hospital resources allow. If your appointment changes, the clinic will contact you.
What you can do
For those people worried about symptoms during the pause, we continue to advise that screening is not for people with symptoms. We would encourage those who are between screening appointments or waiting for rescheduled appointments; to be aware of, and act upon, any symptoms associated with the conditions for which they are being screened. We ask that those people contact their GP, who will arrange appropriate follow-up care. For more information, please contact the Freephone line on 1800 45 45 55 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Pandemic unemployment payment (PUP) Update
ANNE-MARIE WALSH INDUSTRY CORRESPONDENT
People claiming the Covid-19 unemployment benefit are risking the prospect of big repayments if they work even a couple of hours a week. Concerns have been raised that some recipients may not realise they must close their claim, even if not working full-time. This may apply to part-time or self-employed workers who return to work on reduced hours or are contracted to carry out individual projects.
Unlike standard jobseeker benefits, those on the pandemic payment cannot work part-time and collect benefits for the days they do not work.
There are almost half a million people on the pandemic payment – although the number fell from a peak of almost 600,000 in May.” The pandemic unemployment payment is only payable if an employee has lost their job and is fully unemployed,” said a spokesperson at the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. “People who return to work but on reduced hours may be eligible for other income supports depending on the individual’s circumstances.”

HIQA Inspection Report
HIQA published the inspection report on Tuesday 16th of June . a milestone day for all Diagnostic and Radiation Therapy departments nationally.
Medical exposure to ionising radiation is when radiation is used as part of diagnosis such as a dental X-ray or CT scan or the use of radiotherapy as part of cancer treatment at a hospital. It also includes radiation received for medical research purposes and radiation received by carers and comforters while attending a patient.
These inspections are HIQA’s first to be carried out within private sector healthcare facilities to ensure compliance with new regulations signed in 2019. The new regulations provide HIQA with enforcement powers in public and private healthcare for the first time in respect of medical exposures.
John Tuffy, Regional Manager for Ionising Radiation, said “Radiation is used widely in healthcare and new regulations set the minimum standards for the protection of patients when they are being exposed to ionising radiation. These inspections have given us insights into the ionising radiation regulations in practice and while we have seen several areas of good practice, we also identified some areas for improvement which we will be working with services on.”

HSE HPSC cautions to be aware and prepare to prevent Legionnaires’ Disease
Published: May 18, 2020
The HSE Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) has urged people to be aware of Legionnaires’ Disease, a type of pneumonia which causes serious illness in people aged over 50 years, smokers, and those with underlying health conditions. Legionnaires’ Disease and the milder form, Pontiac fever, a flu-like illness, are caused by the growth of Legionella bacteria in water systems which are not adequately managed.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many buildings have been closed, or their use restricted. This can increase the risk of Legionella growth in the water systems and associated equipment including evaporative air conditioning systems, water fountains, showers, spa pools, and other equipment if the water systems have not been managed adequately.
The illness is acquired by the inhalation of aerosolised water contaminated with Legionella bacteria. The case fatality rate (rate of deaths associated with Legionnaires’ disease) is about 10%. The incubation period for Legionnaires’ Disease is usually about 2-10 days with symptoms appearing 5-6 days after infection but may take longer. The illness usually starts with flu-like symptoms including fever, tiredness, headache, and muscle pains. This is followed by a dry cough and breathing difficulties that may progress to a severe pneumonia.
It is very important that during this pandemic and in particular, before reopening occurs that all water systems are kept safe for the future health and safety of guests, visitors and staff

Use of Gloves when shopping
There is no need to use gloves when shopping or outdoors to protect against Covid-19, the Health Service Executive has advised. Although the use of disposable and other types of gloves has become a common sight during the pandemic, the HSE is recommending against their use.
“We do not recommend using gloves while doing your shopping or when you are out and about,” says Prof Martin Cormican, HSE national lead for infection control.
“If there are bugs on your gloves those bugs often end up on your hands when you take the gloves off and from there, they can very easily end up in your mouth, nose and eyes
The Faculty of Radiologists Statement on COVID-19 Management in Radiology Departments
The purpose of this statement is to provide advice to the Irish radiology community regarding the management of COVID-19 patients in their departments. The recommendations included in this document are subject to change given the rapid evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic presents significant challenges for the delivery of health services; both in terms of the continuity of standard care, and in the provision of services specifically tailored to address the pandemic. Given the emphasis placed on ensuring social distancing where possible in the community, and as part of efforts to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus to healthcare workers, solutions to allow clinical consultations take place remotely using videoconferencing are required.

HSCP Share Blog from Kate Murphy, Radiographer St Luke’s Hospital Kilkenny
I can distinctly recall the date of the first Covid-19 patient that was admitted to St. Luke’s Hospital in Kilkenny. Ironically, it was on Friday, the 13th March 2020. It was so rehearsed, systematic, an ideal scenario in fact – the patient was calmly examined in a dedicated isolation room. ‘Recent travel from China’ read the clinical indications on the X-ray order.
We have come a long way since then. Now we are led by daily algorithms and HPSC updates have dictated new work-flow operational practices for Primary Care centres, ED staff and in turn, radiographers. Referral criteria for chest X-rays and CT scans have been modified in line with best international practise. Operational workflow arrangements to deal with both COVID and non-COVID work streams have been organised so that the care streams never meet, in order to minimise infection crossover risk.
Digital mobile radiography is the new standard to reduce the transfer of infection. Strict infection control measures are adhered to – “donning and doffing” are the new buzz words for radiographers. We have also introduced a Buddy system to minimise cross infection whilst X-raying COVID patients. Many patients, either intubated or on admission to the Medical Assessment Unit, appear agitated as the infection takes hold. This makes the whole event of performing a mobile X-ray tense as conversation with the patient is limited. These conditions make it difficult to empathise with the patient.
I am a well-seasoned radiographer and I have found it heart-breaking to work in these circumstances, only to find that, in some cases, the patient has unfortunately passed some days later. I’m now an expert in PPE. I can discern the quality of good PPE from a mile off. I spend much of my day in a whole white body suit that was not so long ago commonplace on media images we saw from Italy and Spain. Where initially there was one patient, now there are often four to five portables to be performed in a COVID ward. The suits are hot and difficult to move in but a necessary evil. I keep telling myself that I will never take another free dessert from the canteen again, but my willpower is shocking.
It has been six life-changing weeks since the crisis took hold and there is no sign of it abating any time soon. My physical and mental well-being is tested on every shift. Equally though, valuable lessons have been learned and strong work friendships formed in the face of hourly adversity and crisis.
There have been many days and nights since this crisis started that I have questioned why I ever become a Radiographer. I lost a good friend just last week and discovered this awful news by casually looking up RIP.ie whilst I was on call. I was able to not attend her funeral or pass my condolences to her family. There is no longer a vent to express the normal phases of grief. I have lost work colleagues and the realisation that I too may succumb to COVID 19 is never far from my mind.
I am not a great cook or champion organiser but since the crisis has begun, Nigella, Kevin Dundun and Nevin Maguire are strewn across the kitchen table. Blobs of flour and egg shells mark my attempts at becoming the next Nigella.
My teenage children can sleep for Ireland, but they have, on a couple of occasions, acknowledged what I do for them on the frontline … and that has brought a tear to my eye. I realise I am a radiographer because I worked hard to be one and that example is what I want to impart onto them.
The weeks do pass, and I have a diary noting the dates that Occupational Health have phoned to say I was either a close or casual contact. Little else goes into it. My social diary is clear. However, the weather outside is getting better and with that brings hope …

Reproduction Number Update
Thankfully the R number has fallen again this week . Professor Nolan, Chair of NPHET Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group said there were four separate methods to estimate this number, and that all four confirm “with a high level of confidence” that it is now between 0.5 and 0.8. It also means that on average, if half the population gets the virus, they are not spreading it to anybody else.
Professor Nolan did advise though if some restrictions are relaxed on 5 May, people maintain very strong physical distancing, and the number climbs just over 1, the number of cases will rise slowly

Shopping Safely during Corona Virus HSE
I included this advice that may help your families when shopping . I am sure you are all well aware of the precautions to take when shopping.
Try to limit shopping trips to once a week. This reduces your risk of getting coronavirus or spreading it to others. No reported cases of coronavirus have been linked to contaminated food. Animals or animal products legally imported into the EU are not a health risk from coronavirus.
Follow these steps to reduce your risk of getting coronavirus or spreading it to others.
- Use the sanitiser provided for your hands and trolley or basket.
- Remember to avoid touching your face.
- If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve.
- Follow social distancing guidelines – keep 2 metres distance between yourself and others in queues and while shopping.
- Pay by card instead of cash and use contactless payment if possible.

Examples of how Irish tech and MedTech are joining the global fightback against Covid-19.
Ireland has risen to the battle against Covid-19 with what can only be described as dignity and aplomb. Adherence to social distancing rules by the general public and the stoic and courageous response by frontline workers from shops and banks to the bravery of medical workers in hospitals and nursing homes have all played a part. There are more than 100 different projects from PPE and contact tracing to ventilators and vaccination are currently under way across the entire island of Ireland. Read More:
Covid-19 has brought us to a serious time, whether we are front-line workers, small businesses adjusting to social distancing, or balancing working from home with looking after children. As this situation becomes the new normal, we are all adapting to new routines and ways of co-existing. Everyone’s situation is different but setting up a home routine will help put structure on your day. Set times around meals, breaks, snacks, getting outdoors, time for schoolwork, managing workload and so on.
There’s no perfect solution or ‘best practice’ but here’s some advice that might help everyone keep healthy in mind and body over the weeks ahead. And remember, we can only do our best. Read More:
