The Council for the Order of Doctors wants to black list violent patients, so they can be refused access to medical cabinets. This was reported by Le Soir on Saturday. This comes just after a violent attack on a Doctor in Forest on Thursday.
“We won’t stop anyone getting treatment when they need it, but patients who are known to be violent will receive it under increased security”, explained Benoît Dejemeppe, the President of the Order.
A recent poll involving 218 doctors showed 63% have already been attacked. A fifth of these attacks involved physical violence.
