CHARLESTON – A nurse at William R. Sharpe Jr. Hospital in Weston alleges she was attacked by a patient and has been unable to work.
Amy Clemons filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against SHC Services Inc., Jane Doe, et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Doe is an incompetent person that was under the care of the state and was confined to William R.

The plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 10, 2016, she was attacked by defendant Jane Doe and sustained physical injuries that have prevented her from working since.
