Nevada Mental Health Facility Waives Right To Appeal Loss of Accreditation
Last week, officials at Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas said the facility would waive its right to appeal a preliminary denial of accreditation by a Joint Commission panel. The decision means that the facility and its affiliated programs are no longer accredited. The Joint Commission issued the denial after investigating the facility for busing patients with mental illnesses to California and other states.
