(WA Governor) Jay Inslee wants more oversight over Private Psychiatric Hospitals

He does, does he?  It seems that the Seattle Times did a story about all the “incidents” at private psychiatric institutions in Washington. Sorry, no link here due to paywall at the Times web site.  How quickly they forget.  Just recently, there were many stories of the horrific conditions at the State of Washington psychiatric institution, Western State Hospital.

That institution lost its Federal accreditation, due to less-than-stellar conditions there.  There have been inmate escapes, staffing shortages, and lawsuits due to mistreatment of patients.

Maybe, Jay Inslee should try getting his own house in order, before going after the private institutions.
