A 34-year-old woman accused of stabbing a nurse at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre multiple times faced attempted murder charges in court on Tuesday.
Police responded to a report of a stabbing at the hospital around noon on Friday.
A female nurse was treated for non-life-threatening injuries after being stabbed multiple times.

She faces additional charges of possession of stolen property related to the day of her arrest.
The woman will appear in court again on Thursday to face charges in regard to incidents related to breaching a no-contact order and resisting arrest on Jan. 3 and Feb. 25.
Those charges include failure to comply with an order, four counts of mischief under $5,000, dangerous operation of motor vehicle, assault on a police officer, resisting or obstructing a peace officer, two counts of stolen property, failure to stop or remain at a scene and driving while unauthorized.
For the attempted murder charge, Dion is scheduled to return to Red Deer provincial court on March 18.
