San Francisco probes alleged psychiatric-patient dumping
Los Angeles Times

The city attorney Monday announced a formal investigation into allegations that Nevada’s primary state psychiatric hospital had bused hundreds of indigent mentally ill patients out of state with few or no resources.

The allegations of patient-dumping were brought to light by the Sacramento Bee. The paper reported that at least 36 of 1,500 patients discharged by Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas over the last five years had been sent to San Francisco on Greyhound buses.
