The Hospital is affiliated with the Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Police said that the attacker is a middle aged person whose identity is not confirmed yet. The police caught him when he jumped out of the building to flee after the attack.

The police have begun the investigations into the attack. According to reports, The Doctor treated her patients well and was known to be a nice person. It is said that the man who attacked her was perhaps angry with the hospital as they had stopped treating him when he did not pay up the medical bills.   

There is a growing difference between doctors and patients, faced with huge medical bills and are dissatisfied with brief consultations. This incident might further spoil relations between doctors and patients in China.
