Minnesota hospital calls cops and feels the sting
Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 16, 2008
After emergency room staff at Northfield (MN) City Hospital thought an obviously disturbed patient was about to turn violent, they called the police. Officers used a Taser to shock the man, and he was injected with medications and transferred to the psychiatric unit at another hospital. Now federal and state health officials have cited the hospital for violating the patient's rights.
