A union representing state employees is criticizing working conditions at William R. Sharpe Jr. Hospital in Weston.
Thompson says the state Office of Safety and Health Administration has failed to examine the complaints.
Department of Health and Human Resources spokeswoman Allison C. Adler tells the newspaper that the agency takes employee and patient safety seriously.
She says employee training focuses on practices to minimize risk. She says the training also focuses on implementing mechanisms to identify areas to improve care in a safe and caring environment.
