State Health Care Plan in Action

As most of us know, the State of Wisconsin runs a mental hospital called "Winnebago."

Here are some of Jim Doyle's healthcare results from Winnebago:

Three patients died and a fourth was raped at Winnebago Mental Health Institute during a two-year time period.

The cases prompted state citations for neglect and inattention.

State inspection reports showed how poor supervision, questionable medical care, inadequate staffing and bad judgment had put patients in jeopardy.

A follow-up report, published Sunday, found that Winnebago did not immediately inform the state of three other deaths, despite questionable circumstances.

Can't wait to see how Jim does with all the OTHER hospitals in the State, can you?
