Nurse Braved A Man in Amok To Keep Her Patients Safe

Sharing is caring!

Thriller movie happening in real life. “It was like a horror film,” these were the words of Leicester Royal Infirmary nurse Caroline Clayton-Barker when asked about the horrifying ordeal she had to go through. She is a living testament of how nurses are heroes, without the capes.

Before the wee hours of 16 January, Clayton-Barker’s shift was nothing out of the ordinary. She was attending to patients…until 22-year-old Yusuf Aka came into the emergency department of the Leicester Royal Infirmary after wielding knife outside the area. What happened next was surreal, as Clayton-Barker began ushering everyone to safety while Aka was throwing computers across the room. Good thing is that it all ended well. The police swiftly mitigated the situation, thanks to our everyday hero’s efforts. According to her, it was all just part of the job: Nurse who protected patients from knife-wielding man in A&E insists she was just doing her job.
