In a Tyrolean hospital, a long-time nurse was tied to an operating table by four colleagues and tortured for 15 minutes.
Under the pretext of wanting to practice positioning patients, the four operating room nurses, aged between 20 and 50, had lured the woman into the operating room.
Two days after the crime, the management of the hospital was informed about the incident. Just a few hours later, the alleged perpetrators were out of work.
“The behavior of the men is out of the question,” says nursing director of the Tyrolean hospital Stephan Palaver. The nurse concerned has filed a criminal complaint against the men.
In a Tyrolean hospital, four nurses tied up a long-time colleague on the operating table and tormented her for 15 minutes.
Apparently the colleagues wanted to allow themselves a “joke”.
The alleged perpetrators lost their jobs just a few days after the crime.
Tied to the operating table, tortured for 15 minutes and the perpetrators called it a “joke”. These unbelievable scenes happened in a Tyrolean hospital at the end of February. Under the pretext of wanting to practice positioning patients, four operating room nurses lured a long-time colleague into the operating room.
There, the four men between the ages of 20 and 50 attacked their colleague, fixed her on the operating table, held her for minutes and tormented her. According to ORF, the four nurses wanted to make a “joke” on their colleague.
Perpetrators lost their jobs immediately
Two days after the crime, the management of the hospital was informed about the incident. Just a few hours later, the alleged perpetrators were out of work. A small consolation for the employee, because she is still unable to work and is receiving medical treatment.
The nursing director of the Tyrolean hospital Stephan Palaver is more than shocked by the incident and speaks of massive misconduct: “In the nursing sector, more than 80 percent are women and therefore we have to ensure safe and undisturbed work. The behavior of the men is unacceptable.” The nurse concerned has filed a criminal complaint against the men. The police have already started the investigation. The men are presumed innocent until they are convicted.
