Laurel Regional Hospital Security

In the wake of the two recent violent inmate escapes from Laurel Regional Hospital -- only two months apart -- i am compiling representative news items as i find them about Laurel Regional Hospital Security in the NEWS FILE section of this South Laurel Blog for community reference now and in future.

Those news items will be listed in the order i post them, not chronologically by date of publication -- the most recently posted items will be at the top of the list. So some earlier published articles will appear at the top of the list followed by some items with more current publication dates.. In any case, each item shows the publication date.
