LITTLE ROCK, AR - An advocacy group for the mentally ill said this morning that workers at the Arkansas State Hospital for mental patients could have prevented the death of a schizophrenic man last year.

 

The man, whose name was not released, was transferred to the hospital at Little Rock from a facility in the Jonesboro area. The Disability Rights Center said he died in September while choking on hot dogs.

 

The man's death touched off a center investigation that the group said uncovered numerous other violations. Those were announced at a news conference earlier this month.

 

The group is urging legislators to support recommendations for more stingent assessment, training and accountability to improve care at Arkansas' only mental hospital.
