AN INTOXICATED woman who "urinated on the floor" of the South West Acute Hospital (SWAH) has been ordered to comply with Probation.

Dana Crumlish (44), of Killybrack Close, Omagh, appeared before Enniskillen Magistrate's Court yesterday (Wednesday) facing charges of disorderly behaviour, assaulting police and causing criminal damage to a hospital floor.

A prosecutor told the court how on May 5, 2023, police were called to the A&E department at the SWAH to assist the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service with a woman who was acting in a disorderly manner.

Crumlish was observed to be "intoxicated", and was behaving in a "disruptive manner".

Police were told that she had "urinated on the hospital floor", and was "behaving aggressively".

She also had "screamed loudly" while a newborn baby was being attended to around 10 metres away, which caused the baby's care to be "disrupted".

Police warned Crumlish to calm down, to which she replied: "Kiss my ass".

Sentencing for the offences had previously been deferred at an earlier hearing .

However, a prosecutor said that during this time, Crumlish had again come before police attention for intoxication. 

District Judge Alana McSorley said: "The court deferred sentencing to see how well you engaged with Probation. It appears there is still some level of criminal offending."

The judge then asked Crumlish: "If I were to deal with it with Probation, would you work with them, and deal with your addiction issues?"

Crumlish indicated that she would comply with this.  Judge McSorley imposed an 18-month probation order.
