Stay classy, Vegas.

In his first official reaction to an ongoing investigation into whether the psychiatric hospital in Las Vegas is routinely busing mentally ill patients out of state, Gov. Brian Sandoval said his administration took immediate action to address the situation, but downplayed any suggestion his administration has a systemic problem on its hands.

“Let me be clear, improperly discharging one patient is one patient too many," Sandoval said in a written statement. "I take the concerns regarding Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital very seriously and it is not the policy of the state of Nevada to engage in ‘patient dumping’ as been alleged."

The state Department of Health and Human Services launched multiple investigations after a mentally ill man from Las Vegas turned up on a Greyhound bus in Sacramento disoriented and lacking his proper medication. At least one internal probe resulted in the discipline of multiple employees at Rawson-Neal involved in the patient's discharge. The hospital also changed its policies to include more oversight of discharge procedures.


Is it bad that having lived in Vegas my first thought was "there aren't enough buses".

So was he actually mentally ill, or just a chronic gambler?

Nope.

I guess it works out. We send them bus loads of manic, elderly people to be fleeced and tranquilized via over-stimulation, and they send us the occasional unmedicated mental patient. The miracle is that he stood out enough in the state capitol to be noticed.

He was the only one mooning the capital building without a camera around his neck.

I would have expected Nevada's economy to produce really high tax revenues relative to its population, thus enabling them to easily pay for such services as psychiatric hospitals. But apparently that's not really the case.

It's just like a low budget sci-fi film.
