Her actions were videoed and the clip posted on social media, where it had more than 7 million views.

Deputy director Dr Wisit Satienwantanee and acting nursing chief Siriporn Siriwatanapaisal expressed their regrets at a media conference held yesterday night (Sept 26).

They apologised for the sorrow they caused the family of the patient, who suffers from emphysema.

They also said the videoed nurse was mentally weak and unready for an interview for the time being. She faces a disciplinary investigation and would be reassigned to another department where she would not have to deal with patients.

The hospital management attributed her violent handling of the old man to personal tension.

Buddhachinnaraj Phitsanulok Hospital is the third biggest public hospital and treated thousands of patients a day.

Its nurses were well trained about professional ethics and the management hoped such an incident would not occur again, they said.

The hospital director, Dr Suchart Porncharoenpong, today (Sept 26) proposed the transfer of the nurse to another area, and the provincial governor approved it.
