Officers said they spoke with the nurse, Isaac Mosiori, who was in the emergency room getting a laceration on his head stapled and bandaged up, the complaint said. 

Mosiori told police he was in the northeast wing of the hospital and was tending to Jones, who became agitated and slapped him in the face because she was not receiving the medication she wanted.
