Police say she hit and punched staff members, yelled “I’m one of those bad people!”
Talk about a rude awakening. Police say a patient at a Connecticut surgery center became “verbally combative” and later began “hitting and punching staff” and threatened to return with a gun after she emerged from anesthesia last week. Was it emergence delirium or a credible threat?
Because of her suicide threat, police had her taken by ambulance to Middlesex Hospital for treatment.
Citing patient privacy laws, a spokesperson for the surgery center declined to comment or provide further information.
