Death At Md. Hospital Is 2nd Homicide In A Week

BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland health officials are adding more monitoring staff and re-assessing all patients at the state's forensic mental hospital while investigators probe two slayings at the hospital in a week.

Health Secretary Joshua Sharfstein said Friday that officials have been taking steps to improve safety at Clifton T. Perkins Hospital, but more must be done.

"Given this very unusual and very serious situation, there are going to be some immediate steps, some of which were set in motion earlier this week and some of which are taking effect now," he said.
