Minnesota hospital employee badly injured in attack

A staff member in a Minnesota hospital recently suffered serious injuries after being attacked by one of the patients, the St. Peter Herald reported on July 14.

According to reports, St. Peter Police were called at around 7:25 p.m. on July 13 after a female employee was assaulted by a 16-year-old patient inside Minnesota Security Hospital. A statement from a workers’ group revealed that the female staff member, whose identity was not disclosed, sustained serious injuries after the patient struck her head against the wall and kicked her several times. Police officials and the Minnesota Department of Human Services are investigating the incident. A worker union in Minnesota rallied in St. Peter just this past April to express concern about employees in hazardous working environments.
