BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A private psychiatric hospital that houses patients for the state of Vermont says the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has accepted its plan to fix some problems or risk losing federal funding.

Brattleboro Retreat was required to submit its plan after it failed a survey conducted earlier this month.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1bI41RH) the plan, accepted Friday, includes administrative changes, such as the creation of a vice president of quality and clinical services, who will review current practices and determine a course of improvement.

One immediate change following the last inspection was the removal from the hospital of a type of bandage after a patient was seen wrapping the bandage around his or her neck.
