In Spain, a patient nearly stabbed his dentist Xavier Corretger to death for causing pain during dental work.
The patient, whose name is not to be revealed, waited for his doctor right by the clinic and began hitting him with an umbrella accusing Corretger in malpractice. Apparently, Corretger has pained him when trying to pull out one of the man's teeth. The 65-year-old dentist did not report the incident to the local police.
Three days later, however, the patient once again followed Corretger to his clinic, this time with a knife. According to doctors, the dentist lost a lot of blood but now his condition can be characterized as stable, reports “Pais”.
All medical institutions in Spain display the following warning: “Any signs of physical or verbal aggression” against medical personnel will be persecuted, reports RIA “Novosti”.
