Karen Coughlin on the Evaporation of Mental Health Services | Taunton State Hospital Closure | National Nurses United Sponsored Segment | April 7, 2012 | Show 443
More on the decline (evaporation) of mental health services. We are joined by RN and Vice President of theMassachusetts Nurses Association, Karen Coughlin. Karen works at Taunton State Hospital which is on the chopping block. Closure would mean no place for the 147 patients they now serve, and no short-term mental health facility within a 150 miles for the community. This, unfortunately, is happening all across the country.
