Special Committee on Covid-19 Response

Examination of HIQA Report on the Impact of Covid-19 on Nursing Homes in Ireland

Ms Mary Dunnion:

In our regulatory world, we are engaging with nursing homes all the time. That engagement is not only determined by an inspection but also occurs through information that nursing homes are mandated to report to us. At all times, we worked in line with public health guidance that had been issued and all our actions were aligned to that.
