The Ontario Nurses Association is angry after one of their own was assaulted at Guelph General Hospital.

The nurse was injured recently when a patient grabbed her wrist, hit her in the face with a full bottle of urine, then bit, punched and kicked her.

Union President Linda Haslam-Stroud says the nurse was treated for a cut and deep bite, underwent tests for HIV and Hepatitis and is taking antiobiotics.

She says the union has filed a grievance to force the Guelph hospital to implement immediate violence-prevention training, a system for flagging violent patients and panic buttons for all nurses.

A heavy tow truck was brought into to remove the rig and clean up the damage.
