Never before seen violence in a patient. Friend became violent at rehab. Just before he was scheduled to come home. He baricaded the door with another patient in it and broke a window. Now he is being transported back to hospital for evaluation. What to expect? He's never done this before. Thanks.

He might be transported to an inpatient psychiatric unit for evaluation and a medication adjustment.

Someone should make sure he doesn't have a Uti which can cause psychiatric symptoms (delusions, hallucinations, paranoia) in elderly patients.
