    A hospital employee is accused of poisoning a co-worker at the Gifford Medical Center in Vermont.

    The Orange County Sheriff's Department described an isolated incident between two workers that did not put patients in danger. Police announced Friday that 63-year-old Wayne Parezo, of Braintree, has been charged with aggravated assault.

    The sheriff's department said Parezo is accused of putting a "foreign substance" into a coworker's drink. The coworker ended up in the emergency room.

    Parezo, who's due in court in September, didn't immediately return a message left at his home.

    The hospital said he's no longer employed there. A hospital website indicates he'd worked as an environmental services worker for several years.
