THERE has been another case of an emergency room doctor being threatened and intimidated. 

In the latest of a series of incidents the doctor was only saved from being physically assaulted at Malaga’s Hospital Clinical by the rapid action of a security guard. 

The health worker has reported the incident, which involved a psychiatric patient, to hospital authorities and the National Police.

Health workers’ union CSIF has expressed its concern about the high rate of aggressive incidents against public health workers in Malaga. 

It has denounced a lack of adequate facilities, arguing that “these deficiencies, coupled with a chronic lack of staff in the emergency room, complicate actions that can be taken in violent situations such as that experienced this Monday.” 

In a statement the union added that the health service should adapt its Plan of Aggressions to take into account individual health centre architecture so that workers can be quickly evacuated to a place of safety when needed.
