Its certification at risk, Larned State Hospital seeks $2 million from Kansas Legislature

The Kansas Legislature is being asked to appropriate about $2 million to Larned State Hospital, which is threatened with losing federal certification because of chronic problems with staffing. Losing the certification from the Joint Commission, a national organization that accredits hospitals, would cost the state $14.5 million in federal funds each year.
