Physician Assaulted by Patient & Moderately Injured

Kaplan Hospital in Rechovot on Thursday will hold a one-day strike, treating only emergency cases and operating on a Shabbos schedule.

The extreme move was prompted by an assault against a physician on Wednesday, the deputy director of the hospitals department of urology, who was stabbed a number of times with a screwdriver by a patient, who officials report has a history of mental disorders.

The doctor was listed in moderate condition with at least one stab wound to the chest and internal abdominal bleeding.

  1. why the work stoppage at the hospital? if the attacker was mentally off-balance they should have better security watching over such a patient . if it was a fluk ,how did he get a hold of a screwdriver to attack. obviously there is a security problem at the hospital.if it was malicious ,arrest him and put him in solitare with gaurds untill the hosiptal is thru with that nut-case.
