    BRATTLEBORO — Members of a Vermont House committee say they’re not pleased with the information they’re getting from the Brattleboro Retreat about the care of state patients there.

    Committee members Tuesday criticized the Retreat for slowness to keep the state informed about recent incidents at the facility, including one in which a patient reported improper sexual contact to a staff member, and the staff member failed to report the issue.

    Hospital vice president Peter Albert agreed that the report should have gone immediately to the state’s adult protective division.

    In another case, an adolescent patient was improperly placed in seclusion.

    And in another, a patient with both medical and mental health issues was reported to have been subjected to an emergency medical intervention too soon.
