A DISRUPTIVE hospital patient attacked nurses in two violent rampages.

Alexander Fisher, 22, assaulted seven different women in the incidents at Dunfermline’s Lynebank Hospital.

He was described as “elated and excitable”, making comments about aliens and the sexual activity of hospital staff before one of the offences.

He bit one woman repeatedly and punched another while another staff nurse was seized by the neck, kicked and had a piece of glass pushed against her.

The police were called and Fisher was put in handcuffs, leg restraints and a spit-hood.

Fisher appeared from custody having been jailed earlier this month for two years for similar violence at a clinic in Ayr.

Fisher admitted that on April 7, 2017, at Lynebank Hospital, Halbeath Road, Dunfermline, he assaulted a staff nurse by punching her on the head.

He assaulted another staff nurse by attempted to bite her.

He assaulted another staff nurse by seizing her neck, kicking her and pressing a piece of glass on her body.

He also admitted offences that took place on June 10, 2017, at Lynebank Hospital.

He assaulted a support worker by kicking her.

He assaulted a staff nurse by biting her repeatedly and pushing her.

He assaulted another staff nurse by pushing her and spat on her head repeatedly.

And he assaulted another woman by spitting on her.

Defence solicitor Alan Davie said his client was taken into hospital because it was thought he had a learning difficulty but it turned out to be a condition known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder.

Sheriff Charles MacNair jailed Fisher for 160 days to run consecutively to his current sentence.
