Assault claims at Huashan Hospital

A YOUNG man was allegedly assaulted by five security guards at Huashan Hospital yesterday morning, after he tried to enter a ward before visiting hours to deliver breakfast to his father, who is being treated there for diabetes.

The 27-year-old victim Hu Ye told Shanghai Daily that he is now suffering headaches and several bruises to his body after the five security guards punched and kicked him for about five minutes in front of many witnesses.

"A group of seven security guards surrounded me and pushed me into a corner," said Hu, "Then five of them started punching me."

Hu is waiting for a medical report and his father, Hu Jiongming, a local lawyer, said they would sue the hospital once the report comes out.

The hospital's security department officials denied they had punched the man and claimed "the monitoring camera facilities were broken."

"Relatives are not allowed to enter wards before 10am, but the man kept trying to get in," said a manager surnamed Tao from the hospital's property management company.

Tao said the conflict began after the young man started a dispute with the security guards by trying to snatch one of the guard's ID card.

He insisted that the guards didn't punch Hu, but merely tried to "block" him from getting into the ward. He said, however, that they were willing to -apologize to Hu.

Hu claimed a guard told him and his mother not to enter the ward again, after they were found walking through a side door on Tuesday morning, and threatened them by saying, "I'll remember your faces."

The following day, Hu was -allegedly assaulted.

Jing'an District police are now looking into the case.
