If they were prosecuted, what happened to them? We, the public, want to know justice was served for the individuals at GDC.
People say these were just some "bad" staff members at GDC.....but those TPWs would not have done such a thing if the place was so wonderful. It's a "bad" place that allows for the abuse and neglect of the individuals. The reason why things happen at GDC and other centers is because people do NOTHING about it....not even the administration..."cover it up" and collect their check.
I will not leave this alone....we, the advocates for those for people with I/DD will not leave this alone (and that includes Ohio Legal Rights and they are investigating this case).
Don't forget you work for the "public" and it's our tax-dollars paying your check to care for the vulnerable citizens in Ohio.

Apparently, you don't know anything about being a "public" employee. I do-- I work for the State of Ohio.
I know what really happens at GDC....one of the reasons I thank God every day my brother is not living in that hell-hole.

Oh, by the way, here's an idea for you and your fellow Union "brotherhood"> >> Treat the individuals at GDC with dignity, kindness and compassion. Jesus is watching.

Why the sudden interest? This took place months ago. The employee was arrested months ago. It was in the paper months ago. If you are such a concerned citizen, look it up. It's public knowledge. Ohio Legal Rights investigated this months ago. To group every employee at GDC into the same "bad employee" category is nothing more then stereo-typing. As with any large employer, you will have bad employees. You will also have many good employees. Employees that pride themselves in doing a good job. GDC employees do not work for the public. They work for the State of Ohio. They also pay a great deal of taxes. More than the average Ohio citizen. Unless you are a family member of a resident of GDC, you are not entitled to be involved in any investigation. That's why they created HIPPA laws. To protect the residents. There are many great people that work at GDC. It's a great place to work.

GDC employees are public employees. Anyone can make a public records request for an employee's personnel file.
I'm concerned because I did not see anything in the paper about the taser incident. I've been watching since it happened. It wasn't until this forum that the taser incident was made public. Why do you think Kevin Davis was fired?

hippa was created to protect all ppl, sounds like the clients need protection from all you good employees. who got set up to take the fall? they didnt fire the one with the taser huh? gdc has always been a necessary evil. families that didnt want there relatives off they went. there has always been some form of abuse, when it was OHE patients were kept in chains etc. etc. you have to see it for what it is.

There's alot of really good people that work there. I am one if them. I love my job. An the peoe I take care of. It sounds like your just trying to make the place out to be all bad an that's absolutely not true. The people that abuse are caught an dealt with. You act like people allow that stuff to go on for the fun of it. Well your wrong. When an if it should happen it is stopped immediately. Those clients are very well taken care of. You can't control every person that walks in the door but you can make these peoples enviroment the best it can be an that's what we do. So form your own opinion I don't care. I work there I think I would know.

The person who did this was arrested look on the gallia sheriff site. She was fired and if you knew so much you would know that. Other individuals were fired also. You all are ignorant including you Carly. There are good people at GDC who love and care for those individuals.

That's what I am trying to find out, crisp. I didn't read or see anything on the news about it. I want to know who the people were that were fired and if they were really prosecuted.
DODD claims to place these people on an abuser registery.
So many times people that abuse and nelgect those with intellectual/developmental disabilities are rarely prosecuted or receive a lesser sentence.....most don't have family to fight for their rights and it's sure not going to be the state. They "cover-up".

Evidently nobody thought it was your business to know the names of the people involved. If you've been watching from the beginning as you stated, you would have seen this in the paper. They no longer work there. The states investigation is done. Why is it so important to know the names? Other than just being nosey.

Ohio Legal Rights is a state agency that protects the rights of people with I/DD. As soon as they are done with their investigation, it will be public record. It's not being "nosy"-- I'm an advocate. I welcome you to check it out at "Community Now" or view some clips on Youtube from the film Forgotten Lives.
God bless you.

This will be the last comment I post. Nothing anybody says is going to change people's mind about GDC. It is a wonderful job. And for the most part, the employees are good people. They take good care of the residents that live there. These same residents consider most employees their family. As in any job, you have your occasional bad employee. These employees are dealt with accordingly. It irritates me when people start posting stuff that isn't true. Or factual. The person that brought the taser on grounds was the person prosecuted. Nobody was set up to take the fall. That statement was untrue. Why would somebody bother posting when they don't know the facts. It shows how ignorant some people are. Kevin Davis was fired because he failed to do his job. Not on just one occasion. On many occasions. If it is so easy to obtain a state employees personnel file, then you should know this. He made many, many mistakes. Ohio Legal Rights has already investigated this matter. If the person responsible has already been arrested, I don't understand the urgency in obtaining their name. They no longer work at GDC. Their name is not important. GDC is one of the biggest employees in Gallia county. For all the people that have and continue to post negative comments about GDC, I hope the day never comes when they shut this facility down. Because you will then learn what an impact it will have on Gallia county. From the schools to the businesses. There are good people that work there. People with families to feed. The employees pay a tremendous amount of taxes. Without these taxes, a lot of programs suffer. It seems to be a bit hypocritical for you to make the statement Jesus is watching, and God bless you. Right after you have posted several comments judging and stereo-typing the employees at GDC. Just because there are a couple bad employees, not every employee that works there is bad. It's not your place to judge. There is a higher power that will judge, and there are appropriate agencies to prosecute. Yet you continue to want names, because you missed it in the papers. If you were truly an advocate you would have tried to find out what you needed to know at the appropriate places and not post it on a trashy site like topix.
