A Maywood woman picking up her mother from a Near West Side nursing home for a Saturday afternoon visit became enraged with a registered nurse and stabbed him in the head, prosecutors say.
Brandy N. Campbell, 31, was upset with the way her mother’s medication was labeled when she came to the fourth floor of the Monroe Pavilion Health and Treatment Center at 1400 W. Monroe, Cook County prosecutors said at a Sunday bond hearing.
The nurse, a 56-year-old Grand Crossing man, explained the labels and then told Campbell to sign paperwork to check her mother out for a day visit, prosecutors said.
Campbell got upset and shouted, “I will kill you,” as she took out a black folding knife and stabbed him in the head, face and hands, prosecutors said. He suffered a 4 centimeter gash to his left temple that had to be stapled, and he remained hospitalized on Sunday, prosecutors said.
Officers responding to the 911 call bumped into Campbell as she walked out of the first-floor elevator covered in blood, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said the stabbing was captured on surveillance footage.
Campbell, of the 500 block of West Lake Street in Maywood, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery.Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered her held on $350,000 bail. She is next due in court on May 8.
