Hospital lifts ER quarantine after 5 develop hallucinations

COOS BAY, Ore. – A hospital in Coos Bay has lifted a quarantine of its emergency room after a 78-year-old patient, her caregiver, two sheriff's deputies and a hospital employee all developed hallucinations.

The Coos Bay World reported Wednesday that authorities have not yet pinpointed what caused the episodes, but they believe it was something spread by direct contact. The sheriff's department says one possibility is a medicated patch.
