And finally, we hasten to point out that we were most pleased with the outcome of our sharing our concerns with Bassett. Our hope would be that as a result of our efforts, what happened to us will be less likely to happen to someone else. We also would hope that no one will think that our pointing out concerns about inpatient care means that we are not supportive of Bassett Healthcare. In fact, according to the letter we received following our meeting, we were told we are “... an advocate for Bassett.” And we fully intend to remain so.
