Editorial: Officials Should Not ‘Gloss Over’ Patient Busing
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that "Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R), [HHS] Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and the agencies that should be overseeing mental health care are whitewashing Nevada's practice of busing" patients with mental illnesses to California and other states. According to the editorial, a state investigation of the practice conducted last month "praised the care provided by" Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas. It states thatÂ such assessments should not "gloss over Nevada's reckless policy."
