Nevada Hospital Giving Patients One-Way Bus Tickets
From the Sacramento Bee:
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera on Monday opened a formal investigation into whether the state of Nevada improperly “dumped” psychiatric patients in his city and throughout California.
The move comes after an ongoing investigation by the Sacramento Bee uncovered data showing that since July 2008, Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital has transported more than 1,500 mentally ill patients out of southern Nevada by Greyhound bus, sending a third of those patients to California. The majority of those ended up in Los Angeles, but bus tickets show 31 cases sent to San Francisco.
