Playing precision with 14-16 1NT all seats and vulnerability. West's bid shows 11-15 points and could be as short as 2. What do you bid (if anything) sitting east?

If responder does bid 1, what would you respond holding:

West
10

? All raises imply 4 pieces; 2M=11-13 balanced or 10-11 unbalanced, 3M=12-13; Splinters showing maximum.

West chose 3 Splinter => 4 down 2...the hand only making 2 DD.  

Does Responder need to be more conservative to bid 1 or is our raise structure flawed?
