I remember when I was practicing in Massachusetts, it was considered a health crisis when hospital bed occupancy rose to more than 85 percent. That was considered insufficient capacity to respond to any disaster situation. And when we are at around 120 percent capacity here for mental health beds, what does that mean about care in Vermont?
