According to the incident report to which G1 had access and reports from a person who was at the scene, the woman would have been irritated by the waiting time for an appointment and invaded the room of one of the nurses – who was caring for a six-year-old baby. months. After explaining that the patient would be the next to be called, the nurse was reportedly pushed twice.

Then, while trying to contain the patient, the nurse was allegedly hit with a punch to the face and a bite to the hand, as well as kicks and slaps. Afterwards, the incident report reports that another employee of the health center was called a “creole” by the patient.

In a note, the Municipal Health Department (SMS) states that it has registered a notification of work-related accidents and violence, as well as a police report. The employee was referred for follow-up at the Municipal Server Health Management (GSSM), which takes care of the health of City Hall employees.

Note from the Regional Nursing Council of RS (Coren-RS)

This May 12th, Nurses’ Day, instead of just celebrating, the Regional Nursing Council of Rio Grande do Sul (Coren-RS) has to go public to express its absolute repudiation of aggressions committed against two nurses at the Basic Health Unit (UBS) Santa Marta, in Porto Alegre, by a user, on May 9th. According to a complaint by one of the nurses to the municipality’s Ombudsman, the user threw “slaps, punches, kicks, kicks, bites and scratches” against her and committed a racial slur against her colleague. The user, who was arrested in the act and released, would be dissatisfied with the waiting time for care.

Coren-RS will request urgent measures from the Municipal Health Department (SMS) of the Capital, demanding the adoption of safety measures so that Nursing professionals can fully act in the Primary Health Care (PHC) network of Porto Alegre.

It is unacceptable that episodes like this still occur against Nursing! Coren-RS represents more than 140 thousand professionals and will continue to fight for them!
