The family of a man who assaulted an emergency room doctor in Detroit Lakes says they're sorry that he was hurt, but they wish the hospital had handled things differently prior to the assault.

Val Rusness said her brother, Greg Rusness, has been struggling with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia since he was 17 years old. He is now 46.
