Man held over hospital staff attack


My thoughts and best wishes go to all staff members affected by this attack. I am a community psychiatric nurse and during an assessment a few days ago I was threatend with a knife and the threat to kill me by a person who was upset that they were not getting the service they hoped for. This person was not psychotic and has full capacity to know what they were doing. I have 33 years psychiatric nursing experience and now feel very confused about continuing to stay in this job. I am still waiting for the police to charge this person as Why should people get away with behaving in such a manner. My situation could have read so differntly had the knife stuck me. Plus I feel I have a responsibility to highlight this to stop this happening to anyone else.
