So your mum attacked a woman into submission who spent her time assisting her and listening to screaming and abuse all day long?
Erm no she wasn't the nurse assisting her at all, she was from another ward and was speaking to the nurses at the nursing station. I think my mum was exhausted, frustrated and in pain, so to hear a nurse being spiteful just caused her to lash out, besides it was her first child and she had very little support in making me comfortable and quiet.
It was just one square punch in the mouth though. Its weird as she is usually so hard to piss off.
The nurse then went on to make a full apology (as well as my mum), apparently she was new to the job and was given a disciplinary. That's what I was told anyway.
I know attacking a nurse/doctor HCA is unacceptable but if she had given her a hand rather than saying a snide comment the incident would have been avoided.
