TWO police officers who were guarding an inmate were forced to intervene when the relative of a patient admitted to the Virgen de la Victoria Hospital in Malaga began threatening and insulting four health care workers.
CSIF Union expressed its ‘condemnation and maximum rejection’ of the incident in which two nurses and two nursing assistants who were working on a night shift ‘suffered constant harassment from the alleged aggressor’.
The man reportedly went as far as following the members of staff around the hospital shouting insults and being abusive.
After trying, unsuccessfully, to calm the alleged offender, and fearing for their safety, they contacted security. Two officers who were already on site assisted in getting the man to leave and took his details to begin legal proceedings.
CSIF has demanded that ‘the administrations act with force in the courts’.
