Emergency room nurses at Cyprus’ state hospitals will on Wednesday carry out a two-hour work stoppage from noon to 2pm in protest to a lack of state action to ensure their safety.

The nurses participating in the strike belong to the PASYNO union. It on Monday remained unclear if they colleagues belonging to the nursing branch of civil servant union PASIDY will also be taking part.

The decision to strike came after two nurses were attacked at Nicosia General Hospital on Saturday night. The two women, one of whom suffered injuries to her arm and another who was knocked to the ground, were attacked by a man who did not think enough attention was being paid to the person they had  brought to the hospital.

The man began to shout and swear and throw things around before turning on the two nurses.
