San Francisco sues Nevada over alleged patient dumping
Modern Healthcare

In a class-action lawsuit, the city of San Francisco claims Nevada state-hospital officials secretly bused hundreds of homeless patients from a psychiatric hospital to California, sometimes with little more than a few days’ worth of pills and instructions to call 911 on arrival. The lawsuit, filed in superior court in San Francisco, says officials at Nevada’s Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas bused more than 1,500 patients to hospitals around the country, including 500 who were sent to California even though they were not California residents.
