Protection And Advocacy Wants Mediation

Cheyenne, Wy – During an investigation of the state hospital, a Wyoming advocacy organization says they have uncovered several problems. Protection and Advocacy Director Jeanie Thobro says they have uncovered a number of problems at the State Hospital that go beyond the recent suicide. They range from staffing numbers to treatment of staff. Thobro has asked the Wyoming attorney generals office for formal mediation. The state had settled with Protection and Advocacy during a previous lawsuit and Thobro is hoping they can avoid going to court. Thobro adds that because they have uncovered a number of new issues, their investigation will continue.
