Ill. hospital reviews protocols after nurse hostage incident
Law enforcement authorities and Delnor Community Hospital in Geneva, Ill., are reviewing an incident last weekend in which a jail inmate recovering from surgery disarmed a correctional officer and took two nurses hostage before a Kane County SWAT team member shot the suspect. Delnor spokesman Chris King said the hospital is evaluating whether procedures were followed correctly, noting it's too soon to say whether protocol changes are needed.
