MENTAL HEALTH
Judge finds West Virginia agency in contempt of orders regarding state's psychiatric hospitals

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


A judge has ordered two West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources officials to appear in court later this month after finding the agency in contempt of court orders regarding the state's psychiatric hospitals.

The DHHR also must immediately reduce the number of patients at William R. Sharpe Jr. Hospital in Weston and at Mildred-Mitchell Bateman Hospital in Huntington to ease understaffing.

The Charleston Gazette reports that Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Duke Bloom issued the order on Tuesday.

Bloom directed Health and Human Resources Secretary Karen Bowling and Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities commissioner Victoria Jones to appear at a show-cause hearing on July 15.

Jones told the newspaper in a statement that none of the bureau's actions warrants a contempt order.
