PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A nurse at The Miriam Hospital was arrested Sunday for bringing a gun to work with her, according to Providence Police Major David Lapatin.
Lalayna Grilley, 38, was taken into custody after Lapatin said a security guard found the firearm in the emergency room.
Grilley wasn’t present when the gun was found, according to Lapatin. She’s since been charged with possession of a firearm without a license.
Lifespan confirmed that “a non-security professional” brought into one of their hospitals while on duty, however, she did not identify the employee.
The spokesperson said that employee was terminated for violating Lifespan policy.
