This case takes place in Mississippi and involves a psychiatric hospital staff member who was attacked by a patient. The attacker had a diagnosis of schizophrenia with a long a history of violence, but there were allegedly no policies or procedures in place to restrict or otherwise monitor his access to common areas. He was previously on Risperdal a few years ago, but stopped due to the development of gynecomastia. He was then placed on Abilify and other medication, but was not responding well to any them. The patient had previously demonstrated a fixation on this member of the hospital staff, following her around the common areas and, on occasion, had made threats of violence against her. Despite reporting this behavior to her supervisors, nothing was done to restrict the patient’s movement or otherwise protect the staff member.
