Video: Hospital violence again - Nurse attacked by Thai man angry at having to wait

Caption: What's my queue number?

 

A video being widely viewed on Thai social media showed a Thai man attacking a nurse and other patients who came to her aid. He engaged in a foul mouthed rant with staff. 

 

He was angry at being made to wait to have a dressing done. 

 

Dr Thasanathep Yimyaem of Pluak Daeng Hospital in Rayong said that the attack happened on Tuesday.

 

The man had previously been in for dressing but this time there were a lot of people and he wanted to know how long he would have to wait. The nurse asked him to be patient. 

 

The nurse was injured along with other people.

 

Dr Thasanathep said the video did not come from anyone at the hospital and was damaging to their reputation.

 

A police report has been filed and Sanook reported that the local police know the identity of the man. 

 

This is the latest in a long list of filmed altercations at Thai hospitals in recent months.

Understaffed and not enough of them, hospitals; unfortunately spending millions of dollars on submarines was more important

No; lock him up and throw the key away until the nurse or other injured parties decide he's been there long enough !

Kind of missing the point isn't he? 🤔

The 'Point' in Thailand is always the 'Face' of the Institution; other than that nothing matters as the staff are mere cannonfodder !

I'll get in before all the western commenters who hate Thais (but inexplicably still live here) come in and pretend this is a Thai only problem - the comments on the TVF facebook page suggest that it's only a matter of time.

 

Go talk to any ED nurse in any Western country and ask them if they've been subject to violence or threats from patrons - they absolutely will have been. Not excusing this idiots behaviour in the slightest, but assaults on medical staff isn't a problem unique to Thailand. 

 

I have experience of two large hospitals in the UK. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights were not good times to have to visit casualty.

 

They all have security guards now.

New Zealand had a hospital security guard beaten near to death last month and in Australia last year, a surgeon was killed after telling some loser to stop smoking next to the entry doors. It's a shame the hospitals even have to treat these ungrateful losers.

Hey Sammy,

 

we didn’t allow any fragile Thai males in our ERs so never happened in our hospitals....

A nurse friend of mine in Brooklyn got beaten up by a patient and shot at by a fired doctor trying to find his colleague... before setting a floor of hospital on fire.

 

Nutcases are everywhere. What's most amazing is that when such a nutcase walks into hospital and beats people up or even shoots at them, but gets injured him/herself, these same assaulted nurses offer him medical care... I could not be in this profession. They have a different kind of a heart.
