LAS VEGAS, Nevada (April 22, 2013) – According to an article from 8NewsNow, The State of Nevada is currently being investigated for allegedly “patient dumping” hundreds of mentally ill patients. Apparently there are busloads of mentally ill people being sent out of Nevada into California and other states. A Sacramento Newspaper reports that at least 1,500 mentally ill patients have been sent from Nevada to the Sacramento area alone. It has been reported that these patients have been illegally shipped out of Nevada without adequate food, medication, housing, or prior arrangements for their care. San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera announced a formal investigation into Nevada busing people into other states. Governor Brian Sandoval has since toured the state’s Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital on Friday and spoke with hospital administrators in order to implement corrective measures as well as disciplinary action.
“This is a shocking and illegal practice that must stop,” states West Seegmiller, founder of The Seegmiller Law Firm in Las Vegas.
