Editorial Lauds Nevada’s New Patient Discharge Policy
A Sacramento Bee editorial states that although Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) "still has plenty of explaining to do about his state's cavalier policy of busing mentally ill patients" to California and other states, his administration "deserves credit" for now requiring such patients to have an escort. It concludes that all states "must understand that they have a fundamental obligation to care for people who through no fault of their own cannot care for themselves."
