Director Hopeful About State Hospital Investigation

Sheridan, Wy – Threats over possible legal action concerning the State Hospital, has Wyoming officials reviewing practices at the Evanston facility. Health Department Director Deb Fleming says a third review team that includes regional and national experts will be the next group to study the facility. While Fleming calls the recent suicide at the State Hospital tragic, she is hoping the review teams will be able to make the hospital better.
Fleming says solutions could range from how the state handles staffing to spreading the duties of the State Hospital throughout the state.
