"We're trying to determine what chemical the person was sprayed with," said Albritton.
The Polk County Hazardous Materials Team assisted. The hospital has not released the site of the original decontamination. Albritton also said at 3 p.m. that the patient, who was brought to the hospital sometime before 1 p.m., was in "good condition."
