A female relative of a baby who is a patient at the San Fernando General Hospital was arrested last night after an alleged verbal and physical attack on a doctor.
According to reports, the doctor had indicated that the child in who was being held by the woman, should be placed into the crib since the child suffers from a heart condition which can worsen. It is alleged that the woman began verbally assaulting the doctor and subsequent to that, she is said to have slapped the doctor.
A letter has since been forwarded by the doctor and the San Fernando Doctor’s Association to various health authorities in light of this incident and other security concerns.
The woman meanwhile, is expected to be charged in the matter.
