A male patient allegedly assaulted three staff members at Hants Community Hospital in Windsor, N.S., Tuesday evening, RCMP say.
The man faces charges of assault and causing a disturbance, RCMP spokesman Const. Mark Skinner said Wednesday evening.
Around 8 p.m on Nov. 10, Windsor district RCMP responded to a 40-year-old man "causing disturbance to other individuals that were in the emergency department," Skinner said.
The patient assaulted a nurse and two security guards, he said.
"I don't think there were any injuries — or very minor if any — in that respect," Skinner said.
Police and hospital staff determined the patient was medically fit to leave care and was taken into custody, he said. The man spent the day in a holding cell because Wednesday was Remembrance Day, Skinner said.
The man will likely appear in Kentville provincial court later this week, Skinner said.
