Police: Elliot emergency room patient kept punching
“We’re already at capacity,” said hospital Chief-Executive Robert J. MacLeod. He expects pressure will subside once other portions of a $24.7 million mental health improvement program are in place.
Wyman had prevented Kinglocke from leaving the hospital and drawn the patient’s ire, according to police reports. The second victim, Melissa Clermont, discovered Wyman face down on the floor in the secure area, with Kinglocke apparently trying to use Wyman’s employee ID/key card to exit the area. When Kinglocke saw Clermont, he allegedly punched her in the face, which knocked her to the ground, police said.
Kinglocke was arraigned Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on the felony charges. He appeared calm, smiling and waving his hands, despite cuffs, to relatives in the gallery. Court records say he suffered a “boxer’s” fracture to his right hand, an injury that can occur when delivering forceful punches.
Wyman is undergoing treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Hospital security guards and medical staff told police Wyman was face down and unconscious when discovered late Monday morning.
In ER ‘too long’
Dean planned to meet with Wyman’s family later in the day. He said many of the hospital staff appeared traumatized Tuesday.
He said Elliot has eight hospital beds that can handle involuntary commitments, but only the New Hampshire Hospital can treat patients who exhibit assaultive behavior toward others. He applauded the additional beds at New Hampshire Hospital, but said the system still lacks the capacity to address mental health properly.
Dean said hospital workers restrain violent patients according to procedures devised by Elliot staff and Manchester Community Mental Health. He was unable to provide specifics.
Police reports indicate that Wyman was alone with Kinglocke and another patient at the time of the attack.
A timetable provided by the state Department of Health and Human Services calls for several programs to be implemented over the coming 12 months.
