    Sources have told NBC Connecticut Investigates that doctors and administrators have been scrambling to get more information on why a patient at our state psychiatric facility died over the weekend.

    The longtime male patient in his 50’s was living at Battell Hall on the Connecticut Valley Hospital campus in Middletown.

    Our sources have told us the patient had a long history of preventable bowel obstruction issues that may have been overlooked by the medical staff on duty.

    Mary Kate Mason, a spokeswoman from the Department Of Mental Health and Addiction Services, stated she cannot give any details on a possible patient, so she cannot say if a patient died at the state hospital.
