More questionable deaths uncovered at Wisconsin psychiatric hospital

Using police and coroner records, Mary Zahn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found three more deaths at a state psychiatric hospital involving questionable medical decisions. One woman complained she was paralyzed after a fall, but doctors and nurses at Winnebago Mental Health Institute didn't believe her. They waited six days to take her to a hospital where she was diagnosed as a quadriplegic; she died 15 months later. State officials didn't know about the case until two years after the fall and spent just one day investigating.
