RPA patient attacks nurses with scissors
Australia, Four people, including three nurses have been injured after a female patient allegedly wrested scissors from one worker at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.
A nurse caring for the patient before 8.30pm on Saturday called for help when the woman became agitated, police say.
It’s alleged the patient grabbed hold of the nurse and took her scissors from her before stabbing her twice in the back after she had fallen to the ground.
Two other nurses came to her aid and sustained minor injuries.
The 29-year-old patient then entered a neighbouring room where she allegedly assaulted another patient, aged 75, stabbing her in the face.
The woman was finally restrained by hospital security and other medical staff and sedated..
