Woman Attacked CentrePointe Staff Member, Broke Her Collarbone, Deputy Says

A Sheriff's Deputy reported the woman yelled she would return and shoot staff members at the treatment facility.

A woman being treated at CentrePointe Hospital attacked a staff member Dec. 22, jumping on her and breaking her collarbone.

A St. Charles County Sheriff’s deputy said the woman jumped on the staff member, pulling her hair and yelled, “I’m going to kill you, (expletive).”

Patsha Ramsey, 18, of the 1600 block of Olive Street in the city of St. Louis, was charged Wednesday with second-degree assault.

The deputy said Ramsey wrapped her legs around the staff member’s upper body and it took several other hospital employees several minutes to get her off the staff member.

Multiple witnesses told the deputy Ramsey threatened to return to CentrePointe and shoot all the staff. According to the report, Ramsey’s doctor said she is not psychotic, is able-minded and fully aware of her actions.

Ramsey also had outstanding warrants for assault, according to the deputy’s report. Ramsey was transferred to St. Francois County, where she was wanted on three third-degree assault charges in Farmington. She is being held in St. Francois County jail.

Bail was set at $50,000 for the assault in St. Charles County.

Instead of handing out free cell phones in the inner city of Saint Louis, wasted money like this should be reserved to pay for programs that will give some degree of security for those in the line of fire

I came to the conclusion a long time ago that nursing staff isnt important. Nurses get abused daily and nothing happens to the person that is the abuser. go to other countries where if you abuse staff you go directly to jail and get charged to the fullest. The problem is some of these people dont understand that the nurses didnt go to the abuser the abuser came to them for help so why do they have to be so abusive to people trying to help them. It called lack of education

I worked with this violent offender for over a year. She was set free just because she turned 18. We knew she would offend and hurt someone again. I feel for that staff she hurt because the staff probably didn't know what she was capable of. Ramsey is not crazy...she is mean and hateful and violent. Remember her face. If you see her somewhere, run the other way

I had the misfortune of spending 2 days at Centrepoint the week of Christmas. I had went there on my own accord, because I felt like I was heading for a mental breakdown. They checked me in without telling me that they were putting me in a locked ward. To make a very long and traumatic story short, I was threatened (along with all the patients and staff) that, "I'm gonna kill all you mo-fo's tonite". They call code green and staff from all over the place come running to subdue the situation. The next day, a guy came out of his room, walked up to another patient and cold cocked him right in the mouth. Poor guy was bleeding and lost some teeth. Then the final straw was the Paranoid Schitzophrenic/Multiple Personality patient that they thought they were going to put in with me! I was there to get some help and in the meantime, had never felt so threatened, nor have I ever been around the level of anger and violence in my life. A patient pooped in another patients room/shower and although many people reported it, it was 2 days later before they picked it up and cleaned the shower. I can honestly say that I was traumatized so much, that I am in worse condition 17 days later than I was when I went in there. Horrible place.

And you would have these people go where for help? CenterPoint is there to help people, people with real problems. They do the very best job that they can. I know, I have been there, am still being treated there as an out-patient. They do a wonderful, yet, thankless job. The world could use more people like the ones that work there. To them I say Thank You for all you do.
