"Your situation got worse and worse during long hours of waiting for a doctor to come to the department. You received insults and threats from a heartless nurse," she stated.
Sheba Medical Center denied the claims, saying that Hurvitz received "humane and professional" care during his time at the hospital, according to the Army Radio report.
