The woman was waiting for the results of a blood analysis in a room in the triage section. The doctor told her everything was fine and she could go home. The patient then asked to be put on a drip, but the doctor told her it was unnecessary.

As the doctor went to remove the tube connected to the patient, without saying a word the woman whacked her in the face with a bag at the same time as pinching the doctor so hard on her left arm she caused bruising.

The 42-year old was the 10th person police have detained in Almeria for violent attacks on medical staff since September last year.
