Honestly, I believe IOI cares about the individual's within this community with developmental disability. It takes a certain type of person to be in the field and deal with all of the paperwork! But, in the end your making a difference in people's lives and seeing them grow as individuals and that makes it all worth the headache.

Well i think ioi sucks. Since ioi has took over 3 years ago i have seen first hand how the health of the individuals has changed. Ive seen patiants that were healthy and now are either overweight or on drugs to sedate them. The people that run things at the center are all in it for the money, and most of them are on drugs. IOI NEEDS TO BE RUN OUT OF THE COUNTY ABD SOME OTHER COMPANY RUN IT THAT CARES FOR THE INDIVIDUALS.

You should be careful, that's character defamation (aka slander)! And I'm also sure that the corporation at IOI has the monetary funds to have your ip address traced, which is a possibility when they find out about you're statement.. just so that you can state your claim/accusations properly to them face to face. Your statement makes reference to a place of business not a person or a group of people.
The company of IOI is evaluated and held accountable to state and federal regulated policies and standards. I'm positive that if things were as you say that they are, IOI would not be allowed to continuing caring for individuals in the community. IOI is a company that operates these type of agencies across the US, not just in lil 'ol Jamestown.
Honestly, you sound like a disgruntled employee who was probably fired.

I definitely think you are an old employee...that was probably fired!(was it for abuse, neglect or exploitation..or due to a positive drug screening?)And Challengers was taken out for good reason. If you would read the Fentress Courier..you would know why because they made it ALL public knowledge. And your details concerning the individual's and there staffing, you are definitely confused on the issue and should have your facts straight before making all the allegations, it's evident you don't know what you are talking about. You should also consider the hippa violations if you are discussing someone you used to work with. And as far as the office staff using drugs, alcohol and having sex on company time..I think your confused on that as well...that sounds more like the company before IOI. And atleast IOI does random drug screenings on all employees ...including office personal!

Well,I dont know if either of you know what you are talking about or not,but ya'll is funny any way.But about the drug screening that IOI does,it is apparently NOT your normal screening.For example,my sister-in-law worked(past-tense)there and was "tested" for drugs and passed.Two days eariler she failed one that was court ordered for mary-jane.Now any body that knows anything about pot knows that it stays in your system for 27-33 days.She admitted to smoking 1 week eariler before the IOI screening.And yes,pot was one one of the drugs tested for.Bad test?Good boss?iah,just lucky i guess!!And sure,she dosent work there now,but it was her doing,she quit.And buy the way,pot wasnt the only thing tested for buy the court,and she failed them to.And I'm not badmouthing IOI,I'm just stating the truth as SHE told it to me.Not upholding for her,but damn sure not upholding for them either!!YA'LL HAVE A NICE DAY!!!!!

Take it from someone that works at the hospital, with this company the drug screenings are very thorough and in no way can be tampered with. If your sister in law is only a causal "smoker" of pot it wouldn't stay in her system for the specified time period. I would probably call it luck on her behalf!

I see the patients and the staff that work with them out in the community all the time. And they always seem so happy! I say this company is doing a great job!

At this time how the community feels is totally irrelevant. For the simple fact that I.O.I. and all such agencies in Tn.are presently struggling to provide services for our friends and family members under ridiculously under funded state and federal mandates. At present we are looking at a 6% to a 6.1% cut this year alone. I can speak from first hand knowledge that most if not all of the individuals we serve are at present living a life-style that is as good if not better than many of their immediate famlies. Lest we forget what the alternatives are for these same individuals we are discussing, Warehousing them either in Mental Hospitals or TDOC. Trust me I've worked in both and as far as I'm concerned neither of these places are an option!
Yeah!Yeah! I work for an Agency I'm just saying if you want the straight 411 contact Mr. Norris @ DMRS or Gov. Bredesen. Any other questions just reply and ask "K"

Very good point! I think the patients are living their lives as best they can. And like I said before, they do seem happy when you see them out. That tells me, this company (IOI) is doing things right!

I can't comment on the management of IOI but I will comment on some of the employees. Some are/were doing drugs and doing so at the clients home. This came from my son who worked for them. That was many months ago and they might possibly be weeded out by now but it did go on.

Actually,yes it CAN stay in her system that long.According to http://www.concept420.com it depends on the ammount of pot you smoke,the THC half life,and how your metabolism is.It can stay in your system for up to a month if your an avid smoker(which she was).I am buy no means badmouthing IOI but as I said their drug screening aren't always legit!!

Well I have never worked for IOI, however, my husband did. Let me tell you that most of the workers are on drugs. I have seen with my own eyes employees doing and selling drugs in clients homes. I witnessed one client being left on a workers front porch while the 2 workers went into the house and got high and got a tattoo. It is unreal that people are being taken care of this way. I also know several that have bragged about having sex in the clients home. Come on!!!!
