    Rotorua Hospital is at capacity today and people are being asked to go to the Emergency Department only if it is a real emergency


    The hospital's not expecting to have many discharges, and patients are already waiting in ED until a hospital bed is available.

    The situation is not expected to improve quickly.

    Many of the hospital admissions are for winter type illnesses, including asthma and influenza.
