Ms Jago is unable to pick up her five-year-old daughter, and the pain she constantly suffers in her neck, shoulder, wrist and thumb can only be managed with painkillers and steroid injections.
She is taking legal action against Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, and blames staff shortages caused by Government-imposed NHS cutbacks for the incident.Well, of course! What's an ideologically-hidebound NHS worker to do..?
Ms Jago was working on the neurological ward of the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath, when she was attacked after helping a patient to the toilet.
The Uckfield mother, said: "The hospital authorities knew he was dangerous. He had held another nurse up against the wall and threatened to strangle her.
"There was one night he chased me down the ward threatening to kill me. We all submitted incident reports - there were two or three daily. This was going on for weeks, if not months.But despite this, you decided to take him to the toilet on your own..?
"I took him to the toilet and we were chatting. Everything was fine. I was leading him back and he suddenly grabbed my arms and slammed me several times against the door. I was crying out as he lifted me by my arms so my feet were off the floor.
"I called out for help but the only other nurse on duty was on the other side of the ward and she couldn't hear my screams.
"As I was shouting out he was looking at me and repeating back my cries in parrot fashion."It's not 'the cuts' that are at fault here - it's the policy of putting clearly mentally-deranged patients onto normal wards, slack management of risk and people ignoring the genuine threat either out of habit, or some bizarre belief that the severely mentally ill shouldn't be treated as dangerous because it 'infringes their rights', or similar crap.
