Nurse Attacked by "Mentally Ill" Patient

A 39yr old male nurse, at Abbotsford Regional Hospital, British Columbia, was attacked by a 23 year old male patient over the weekend.

The patient was receiving medical and mental health treatment when he repeatedly hit the nurse in the emergency room leaving him with cuts that required seven stitches above and below his left eye.

Although the patient is currently receiving psychiatric care, the police are recommending charges of assault causing bodily harm.

The BC Nurses' Union has reproved the lack of safety for nurses and guaranteed members that legal action would be taken against anyone that hurts a nurse.
