CONCORD — Gov. Chris Sununu said he thinks hospitals have a lot of explaining to do when it comes to helping communities find mental health solutions and should be part of the all-hands-on-deck approach rather than going to court to fight to keep those patients out of their emergency rooms.

At a meeting with reporters after the Executive Council meeting Wednesday, Sununu was critical of the federal lawsuit filed against the state Department of Health and Human Services to stop boarding psychiatric patients in hospital emergency rooms who are waiting for a bed at the New Hampshire Hospital and other psychiatric hospitals.
