Hospital love tryst leads to merciless assault

By Dyan Pathiravithana
All hell broke loose in a female ward of the Ragama Hospital last Sunday when a male permanent minor employee hit another temporary male worker in front of doctors, nurses and patients, even after flooring the victim with blows.
The male worker who had been the victim of the attack later complained to authorities explaining why he got attacked. According to the written statement, he was sent by the ward nurse in the morning to find the hospital employee who attacked him as he was missing from the ward and he had found the man having a tryst with a female attendant in a closet and he reported the incident to the nurse.
On Monday morning when the Director of the Ragama Hospital was informed of what had happened he had the permanent staffer removed from the ward to the Mortuary. The Director had advised the overseer, if the permanent worker was unhappy with the transfer, he was to be sent to another location. The worker is now attached to the Mortuary, according to the overseer.
The female attendant too had allegedly confessed to having an affair with the male minor employee to a female nurse of the ward when questioned following the incident. The nurse had sent the temporary worker to call the missing employee and the female attendant to take a patient to the X-ray room and there had been a delay of half hour. The temporary attendant who had gone with the message had reported to the nurse that the permanent worker was making love to the female attendant inside a closet. (SN)
