Furious Man Drags Hospital Nurse By Her Hair Along Emergency Area Floor In Spain  S Valencian Community

AN ANGRY man assaulted a nurse at a Valencian hospital last Saturday(October 17) after he was told that a family member had died.

The attack happened at Alzira’s Hospital de la Ribera following the death of the relative in the resuscitation unit.

On hearing the tragic news, the unnamed man went to a nurse in the triage area and grabbed her hair.

He then dragged her for several metres along the floor of the emergency area.

She did not suffer any major injuries and the assailant immediately apologised for what he did.

No details have been released as to whether the man will be prosecuted.

The hospital’s works council said that violent behaviour against health workers is becoming ‘increasingly frequent’ across the La Ribera Health Department.
