Limerick Sinn Féin TD Maurice QuinlivanSinn Féin’s Maurice Quinlivan TD today said that this government has failed our nurses and midwives and they are not addressing the pay, recruitment and retention crisis in our health service. Deputy Quinlivan was speaking on a Sinn Féin motion that was debated in the Dáil on Wednesday afternoon.Speaking in the Dáil, Teachta Quinlivan said:“Every one of us will rely on nurses and medical staff when we are sick and at our weakest and most vulnerable during some stage of our lives.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The work these people do on a daily basis is incredible and to provide good pay and working conditions should not even be up for debate.“I always hear stories from constituents in Limerick, as to how impressive and hardworking nurses and health service staff in University Hospital Limerick are.“Staff in UHL are under severe pressure due to lack of staff, beds and investment, and they try their very best to ensure patients get the best treatment each day.“They need help from their government, and Fine Gael is absolutely not providing this.“Just last week, an 85 year old woman, Anastasia Coonan, was left on a trolley in the brand new A&E department in UHL for four days, after being admitted with a suspected stroke.“That is a horrific way to treat a woman of that age, with a serious medical condition.“It is left to the nurses to try and squeeze patients onto corridors, in a chronically overcrowded hospital, and left to the nurses to apologise to the patients and their families, when it couldn’t be further from their fault.“I often speak about the dreadful overcrowding in UHL, it’s the worst in the country, and I’ve called on Minister Harris to step in and address the chaos. Nothing has been done to alleviate the problems there. Nothing. Today 54 people are lying on trollies in UHL. Minister you’ve actually normalised this trolley crisis.“The HSE is struggling to attract home Irish nurses who have emigrated. That’s not surprising. There is a chasm to be bridged in making our system more attractive to work in, compared to other health systems abroad, and I’ve no confidence in this government doing that.“Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael have consistently looked after bankers and big business whenever called on, yet left essential frontline staff such as nurses, begging for adequate treatment. It’s a disgrace.“Sinn Féin would not allow this scandal in our health service to continue. ” Mr. Quinlivan concluded.More about politics here.

In a 2019 overview and 2020 preview, Covius tracks the trends in each states, identifying the six most common areas within default servicing and foreclosure that state lawmakers are addressing, and how they are tackling issues unique to their state.Six of the most common areas addressed by legislators, Covius notes, are judicial foreclosure, government shutdown relief, foreclosure mediation, foreclosure moratoriums, mandatory forbearance, and zombie properties.Several states this year introduced new legislation which would eliminate non-judicial residential foreclosures, requiring lenders to file a lawsuit against borrowers in order to foreclose. For example, New Hampshire introduced a bill that would repeal the section of New Hampshire law governing non-judicial foreclosure and would replace it with a section requiring lenders to proceed with foreclosure through a civil lawsuit. New Mexico and Massachusetts proposed similar bills, requiring judicial foreclosure for all residential mortgages on 1- to 6-family, owner-occupied properties. However, the bills failed in New Mexico and New Hampshire, while Massachusetts’ bill is now eligible for consideration in an Executive Session.Additionally, despite low volumes of default and foreclosures nationwide, and a dwindling number of zombie homes, some states are still putting focus on foreclosure mediation practices while combating neighborhood blight in their communities. For example, in Connecticut, legislators introduced multiple bills to extend their state’s mediation program several more years or indefinitely. The bill is still pending.States with high rates of foreclosures are still looking to combat zombie homes. A special team in New York, for example, identified over 3,000 zombie homes in the Big Apple, most of which are based in areas that are still recovering from the economic distress caused during the Great Recession. On a statewide basis, New York SB 5079, the “Zombie Property Remediation Act”, would give New York cities, villages, and towns the right to sue lenders in order to move foreclosures on abandoned properties more quickly.
