Nurse Stabbed Multiple Times Leaves Hospital to Spend Thanksgiving With Son

Just a week and a half after being stabbed six times, the woman was released from the hospital.

A woman recovering from multiple stab wounds will leave the hospital in time to spend Thanksgiving with her son.

“With her condition, she will probably be in bed,” the woman's son told NBC 7. “But I’ll try to fix her up a good dinner with the limited cooking skills I have.”

The 59-year-old woman is a psychiatric nurse at the North Central Region Outpatient Clinic on Morena Boulevard at Savannah Street, who was randomly and ruthlessly attacked as she was stepping out of her car last week.

Six times the woman was stabbed in the chest, neck and head, San Diego Police (SDPD) said. It happened at about 5:01 a.m. Monday on Nov. 14

She's been a County of San Diego employee for 25 years, working as a mental health specialist, Craig Sturak, Communications Officer Health and Human Services, confirmed to NBC 7.

The man accused of attempted murder in the random stabbing case was held on bail of $2 million in court. At his arraignment, Gregg Taylor, 57, pleaded guilty to an attempted murder charge, according to prosecutors.

He could face a maximum exposure of life in prison with the possibility of parole. Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have more information to call them.
