Correction: Atascadero State Hospital employee's jaw broken in attack by patient

May 7, 2014 

Atascadero State Hospital employee's jaw broken in attack by patient: ​An earlier version of this story incorrectly said Atascadero State Hospital officials didn't alert the media to the attack until after inquiries were made. Notice of an attack and subsequent patient arrest was previously released to The Tribune, but it contained few details.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point.
