They attack mainly verbally and, unfortunately, there are also cases of physical attack.
Doctors and nurses in Slovak hospitals are doing what they can to save as many lives as possible in an unfavorable epidemiological situation. Nevertheless, there are also ungrateful people who found themselves in a difficult hospital after being infected with covidom. Police of the Slovak Republic on its profile on the social network Facebook published several cases in which patients verbally and physically attacked medical staff.
This is not a hoax! Already in the beginning, the police warn the public. According to information from the staff of St. Cyril and Methodius on Antolská Street in Bratislava’s Petržalka, there are incidents that make the work of already exhausted nurses and doctors uncomfortable. There are verbal and physical attacks on unvaccinated patients whose condition is critical in the covid wards.
Police have released specific cases
1. The man threatened the doctor that he would kill him. For a long time, he refused pulmonary ventilation, to which he was connected in a state where he was suffocating uncontrollably. He was eventually intubated or he would die.
2. In the second case, another patient physically attacked the nurses. This person is also on artificial lung ventilation.
3. In the third case, the nurses were at risk with a knife patient.
Patients who can’t breathe, but have found strength for attacks on people who help them. In such cases, the police advised the medical staff to call 158 immediately.
“Since all aggressive and unvaccinated patients are already on artificial lung ventilation, there is currently no need to take measures in relation to them to prevent possible further attacks on healthcare professionals,” police said on Facebook.
