More patients mutilated

`A nurse’s assistant who admitted to ripping out a patient’s fingernails at a hospital here told the police she also mutilated the fingers or toes of four other patients.

Akemi Sato, 30, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of inflicting bodily injury. She worked at the Jujo Hospital via a temp agency. She told the police she used tweezers to rip out patients’ fingernails and toenails to alleviate stress brought on by not getting along with her co-workers.’
