A Cranston state representative is expressing concern about psychiatric patients being transferred out of the Eleanor Slater Hospital to the Roosevelt Benton Center, both in Cranston.  The latter, a former training school, is being renovated ahead of the move, which was authorized because a state commission found there were too many suicide risks at the hospital.  But the Benton center was the site of violence and vandalism incidents involving juvenile offenders last year.  Republican Robert Lancia says there are a lot of unanswered questions from the state regarding security measures and he's scheduling a public forum.
