    Reaching for a new low, Rob Simpson, CEO and president of the Brattleboro Retreat, has taken the heinous and vindictive act of removing security personnel from the patient units. We now have security personnel to guard our cars and buildings at the Retreat, but they are no longer in the patient areas to help maintain safety for patients and staff.

    With increased census and acuity, the direct care staff have made it clear that safety is our highest priority. Now this. The administrationís implication is that it is the unionís fault that patients and workers are less safe because of demands being made for wage consessions.

    Draw your own conclusions.
