Nagapattinam (TN): About 165 trainee nurses at
Nagpattinam Government Hospital resorted to a strike on Friday,
condemning the attack on their colleague by one of the
in-patients, police said.
According to the trainees, one Saravanan (33) receiving
treatment in the neuro ward attacked a trainee nurse Ramya on
Thursday complaining that he was not being accorded proper
care in the hospital.
Ramya immediately informed the Resident Medical Officer
Kasiraman, who in turn lodged a complaint with police.

The trainees, condemning the attack and seeking stern
action on Saravanan, boycotted duty today.
