Clarification: Patient Dumping-Lawsuit story

LAS VEGAS (AP) - In a story Feb. 13, The Associated Press reported that a Las Vegas psychiatric hospital treated an average of more than 6,000 patients a year since 2008, and that 1,473 of them had been bused out of state. The story should have specified that the 1,473 patients were bused out of Nevada over the same five-year period, or an average of 295 per year.
