A California state lawmaker is calling for a federal investigation into the alleged “dumping” of a Nevada mental patient last month in Sacramento.

Hospital and health officials in Nevada, meanwhile, vowed to look into the circumstances surrounding the patient’s release and issue a public report about what happened.

“We don’t take this lightly at all,” said Dr. Tracey Green, Nevada’s state health officer.
