Doctors at Ziv Hospital Strike Over Violence


Doctors at Ziv Hospital in Tzefat will strike Sunday afternoon, in protest over an attack by a patient against a doctor over the weekend. Instead of attending to their rounds, the doctors will attend an “informational meeting” on the subject of violence in the hospitals.

In the incident Saturday night, a doctor at Ziv summoned police after he was attacked. Police arrested the attacker, only to return him to the hospital later – for a psychiatric evaluation.
