LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Nevada's state health officer says the state does not engage in patient dumping but they're going to fix whatever deficiencies were found.
This all comes after James Brown, a former patient at Rawson-Neal claimed he was the victim of improper discharge.
Nevada's state health officer defended the hospital to News 3's Marissa Mike.
Dr. Tracey Green is defending the staff at the hospital following accusations the facility was sending patients out of state with no help waiting for them.
Dr. Greene, Nevada's state health officer says any allegations Rawson-Neal psychiatric hospital practices greyhound therapy are false.
Patients were properly discharged, according to Greene, and they were not sent on a bus to random destinations and left to fend for themselves.
The denial comes after a former Rawson-Neal patient, James Brown, claimed staffers gave him a one way bus ticket to Sacramento, a place, he says, he never wanted to go, where there was no support system and no help waiting for him.
