Two emergency department staffers at Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera were attacked on Tuesday by a patient who insisted that he be treated in a specific bed. A complaint was filed against him with the police. The Hadera resident underwent an x-ray and demanded to return to the same cubicle in the emergency department where his examination began, but it was occupied by another patient who couldn't be moved. He threatened the person in charge of the emergency room and then pushed and cursed two other staffers who tried to intervene.
