Patient abuse in a CT-run facility? Join me in speaking out.

November 7, 2017

One case of patient abuse is one too many.

I have joined the call for a full investigation into the patient abuse scandal at Whiting Forensics Division at Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown.

On Monday, Nov. 13, the Public Health Committee will hold a 1 P.M. Public Hearing on the issue in Room 2C of the Legislative Office Building.

Here’s how you can speak out:

  • Email comments to phtestimony@cga.ct.gov no later than 4:00 P.M. on Wednesday, November 8
  • Include your name and town.
  • Your comments may be as brief as you like.
  • Copy me on the email at Len.Suzio@cga.ct.gov
  • Share this information with others.

All public hearing testimony is public information.

There is an anonymous tip line at the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services to report any issues of concern: the phone number is 877-277-9471.

Thank you.
