A New Jersey woman has reportedly had her nursing license revoked after she was seen stabbing an autistic boy with a syringe.
Health officials, in a release, say that they have revoked the license of Naomi Derrick because of a 2016 episode at an Atlantic City hospital’s psychiatric unit. In the incident, Derrick reportedly stabbed an autistic teenager multiple times with a syringe after he refused to comply with her instructions. The incident was caught on surveillance camera.
She had been charged in 2017 with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, child endangerment and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. Atlantic County prosecutors allowed her to enter a pretrial program in January.
