Nurses strike over attack

PAPHOS GeneralHospital emergency department nursing staff held a half hour strike on Monday between 1pm and 1.30pm in protest after a colleague of theirs was attacked on Saturday night.

Two men aged 25 and 30 had attacked the nurse on Saturday after they believed he had insulted their sister who had visited the department earlier that day, police said.

Nurse representative Ioakim Agathangelou called for more protection for nursing staff so they can do their jobs without any threat of violence against them.

He added that even if a nurse made a mistake there were other ways that a patient could seek justice without resorting to violence.
