“And everyone should have access to health care.”

No criminal action will be taken in the February death of a Broughton Hospital patient who died of asphyxia after a staff member sat on his torso.The death of 27-year-old Anthony Lowery, a patient at the mental health hospital in Morganton, was one of the incidents that led the federal government to stop Medicaid and Medicare payments in August.

On Monday, the district attorney's office that serves Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties said in a letter to the State Bureau of Investigation that it will not charge the staff member who restrained Lowery in the death. Read more

Debbiekaydeedeecandy,ALOT of your problems would vanish if you would just get the treatment you need. But you, just like every other mentally ill person in the world do not think there is anything wrong with you even with everyone telling you you have problems.. You think you are the only sane person around and the rest of the world has problems.. This is NOT TRUE!

I dont know if you all have noticed or not but DebbieKay Deedeecandy hasnt posted in quite some time. I was told that her family finally had all they could handle of her attention seeking behavior and she was committed to broughton to get some help. The family member that told me this said it wasnt just attention seeking problems but she also couldnt tell the truth and told so many lies on her family that basically no one would have anything to do with her. Its sad it took her really going over the deep end before anyone would step up and do something about her problems. At least she is finally getting the help she needs. Hopefully she will keep taking her meds this time and stay normal. From what I was told, this is a huge on going problem with her and she will stop taking her meds after being out for awhile. Maybe this time it will sink in and she will take her meds. Hoping so for her familys sake. She has to be realllllly hard to deal with in real life.

I have also suspected that she was locked up. I don't understand however, how someone who lives in Newbern NC which is nowhere near charlotte or Morganton would know some random person*s personal problems. the only way you could possibly know these things is that you have some kind of connection ie. friends working there. I know the law in NC and the rest of the US concerning these matters. It is absolutely illegal for anyone working with mentally ill people to go outside the hospital or treatment center and tell information about patients to other people not connected to the particular patient. This is called confidientiality. Each worker is supposed sign a contract that they will not under any circustances expose patients in their care to the general public.
Second, freedom of speech is protected in the US. Afterall the US is supposed to be a democratic country unlike communist russia. I don't think being critical of some snake pit state hospital is grounds for being committed. Second, attentions seeking behaviour is not psychosis or suicide or murder it is an annoying personality behavioural disorder. I think there are more people in WNC that are more ill than Debbie and they need commitment more than her. They are more dangerous to themselves and to others than someone who is just sometimes annoying.
You lot, talk a lot about meds. Well, meds are not always helpful and therapeutic. If you love and want to so much about them, well, take them yourselves. You will see why there is so much noncompliance. People are often overdosed and there is really debilitating side effects. I encourage all of you to try them yourselves. Mentally ill don't just need meds shoved down the thoats, they need caring and supportive peole around them. None of you have ever offered any support. You all have picked on her with rude and offensive comments like teenagers in high school. I honestly hope none of you actually work with mentally ill people. New bern is btw in cherry hospital's jurisdiction. I know there are better people working there that actually care and want to make a difference. Sorry this is long but I just had to get if off my chest.

Anifta, My location listed does not necessarily mean that is where I am located. It means it is where my ISP is located. You act as if you know alot but in fact, I cant understand how you would even know where Broughton Hospital is located since you are not even in the same country as Broughton. And you can not just be using a ISP located in finland because I happen to work for a ISP and it is not legal for you to use one out of the country you live in.
Boughton deals with ALL types of mental illness. It is not just for the criminally insane.They deal with attention seeking behavior when it gets to the point that the family has to step in and do something about it. According to your ISP, you are in Finland and your laws are totally different there. I dont know why you think you know so much about Broughton since you are not even in the same country!
Debbie has been on these forums using so many different user names and she has been banned several times because of her behavior. She is rude to others, has begged for people to come clean her house or mow her yard and them when someone agrees to help her she blasts them and accuses them of wanting to sleep with her. This is just a few of her posts subjects on these forums. She has a huge problem and has made her problem everyone in her families problem. Her sister is at the end of her rope because of Debbies behaviors. Other family members have put a stop to her coming to their homes whinning that no one will do anything for her when in fact she can do anything she wants. She just dont want to do anything, would rather guilt others in to doing what needs to be done for her .
I am close to the family and have seen how her behavior has effected the rest of the family. She ruins everyone elses birthday parties and such cause she feels everything should be about her.
I do not work at Broughton nor have I ever worked there so you can stop with your patient confidientiality crap. You do not know this family nor the hell debbie has put on them with her refusal to get help with her problem. Now the family has stepped up to the plate and placed her to get her some help.She has much more serious mental problems beside the attention seeking behavior. Thats just a bit of the problem. You have NO CLUE what all she has down to her family and then blame it on someone else.. She is now getting the help she needs and her family can get a break from her drama for awhile.
