A psychiatric technician was assaulted Friday, said hospital officials, and another incident the following day involved a patient attacking a nursing employee and another psychiatric technician. Identities of the victims or a description of their injuries has not been provided by authorities, but a spokesman told reporters the injured employees were treated at the hospital’s medical area.
An investigation into the incidents at the high-security state hospital is being conducted.
