WARREN – A City of Jamestown man is charged with aggravated assault after City of Warren Police said he injured a nurse’s shoulder while she was giving him medicine at Warren General Hospital earlier this month.
According to a criminal complaint obtained by WNYNewsNow, George Boyer, 66, allegedly grabbed onto, pulled and twisted the right arm of a registered nurse while she was attempting to administer medicine to him on Sat. Mar. 16.
The alleged assault forced the nurse to seek medical attention in the emergency room of the hospital for a sprained shoulder.
Police said Boyer was arraigned and released on $10,000 bail.
In response to Boyer injuring a nurse at Warren General Hospital, Mr. Boyer suffers from specific illnesses which cause him to hallucinate and lose touch with reality amongst other symptoms. Mr. Boyer did not know what he was doing and this is common knowledge by those who know him as well as several Warren General Staff who have offered to support Mr. Boyer. Mr. Boyer has no prior record and would not have intentionally or knowingly hurt this individual of whom we are all sorry for her experience but now Mr. Boyer is facing a felony charge in addition to terminal illness.
I’m a nurse. Maybe it was the nurse’s fault. I don’t all the details, but if the patient is non-compliant, the caregiver should back off & re-approach. Especially with RN’s. They are always in such a damn hurry.
