Hospital staff questioned over Limerick man’s death

University Hospital Limerick

DETECTIVES have questioned staff at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) as part of an investigation into a patient’s death in 2010.

In 2012, an inquest into the death of Michael Daly (66) of Lee Estate in Limerick City found that he died of cardiac failure due to natural causes.

However his family disputed this and have appealed the verdict. They found that two potentially significant documents were missing from their father’s medical records while he was at UHL.

The UL Hospitals group described this as an ‘oversight’ but Limerick City coroner John McNamara ordered a second inquest into Mr Daly’s death.

The Garda investigation will form part of the evidence that will be presented to the new inquest.
