Denisenko v. Sentara Hosps.

The court denied Sentara’s claim that it had no duty to protect one emergency-room patient from another’s unprovoked attack. Although the hospital didn’t assume a duty to control the other patient despite his known history of aggression and violence, the plaintiff alleged sufficient facts to establish that the hospital did have a duty to protect him from foreseeable harm.
