Just how dangerous is it to work at Napa State Hospital?

Several months ago we spoke with Dr. Stephen Seager, who has worked as a psychiatrist at Napa State Hospital for more than four years.  While he applauds the care that’s given to the patients, he argues that Napa State is a very violent place.  A place where psychotic and  dangerous criminals are mixed with the staff and the general hospital population.  Dr. Seager has written about his experiences in “Behind the Gates of Gomorrah: A Year with the Criminally Insane.”  Here is our conversation with Dr. Seager.
