Taipei, Nov. 10 (CNA) The president of the Puzi Hospital, Tsai Chung-jun (蔡宗龍), apologized Tuesday for an act of self-defense against a drunken patient who tried to attack health care workers.
The incident occurred when the drunken man showed up at the emergency room of the hospital in Chiayi County seeking treatment.
The patient suddenly lost his temper when he was asked about his condition and then initiated a brawl with health workers and the police, said Tsai.
Tsai said he tried to stop the alleged attacker by knocking him down and medical staff quickly reported the incident to the police. The patient was later given treatment and left with friends, according to Tsai. [FULL STORY]
