*It’s unclear from inspection records at which Sundance hospital the violations occurred.

Safety incidents: In 2015, a suicidal woman was found in a shower with a plastic bag over her head and had to be resuscitat­ed. The same year, a 19-year-old woman hanged herself with a bedsheet tied over a door. She survived. In 2016, the hospital failed to document a woman’s report that a staffer sexually assaulted her and a mother’s report that her son was touched inappropri­ately by his roommate. Last year, a man reported being raped by a fellow patient and an aide slammed a patient on the floor and hurt his head. Records show Sundance took steps to correct problems, including by firing some staff or retraining others.
