Staff Allegedly Failed to Protect Others from Violent Patient

A former Horsham Clinic patient alleges that he was assaulted in an unprovoked attack by another patient. He alleges that while he was talking on the telephone, the violent patient approached, accompanied by a staff member, and “struck [him] in the face multiple times and assaulted and battered him, without the staff member taking any actions to prevent that attack and battery.” He also alleges that the clinic should have taken precautions to protect patients from the regular violent tendencies of this particular patient. The case is ongoing as of May 17, 2014.
