No charges in Broughton Hospital patient's death

“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

<quoted text>It s true I do not know where it happen but it did.The only reason ,that the people on here dont believe me is because most of the people on here who reply to me are the stinking people that work there!I did visit my brother there.I cant stand that place,I just wish they would do a REAL investigation there!When nobody knew it was coming,then you all who don't work there would know im telling the truth.I feel sorry for anyone who is in that place and comes across theses monsters that does these awful things to these people.one day you all will see!Don't these of you who have seen or is the the ones that were abused don't be scared they cant hurt you on here speak your mind ,and I will back you all the way,I care I'm here please do share.Don't mater what these people on here who has no clue say They don't know.
Debbie, just because people dont believe you dont mean they work there! Thats the dumbest crap I have ever heard!The truth is the truth and it DIDNT HAPPEN THE WAY YOUR BROTHER SAYS IT DID! Thats all there is to it. Now you need to stop your "drama" and get on with your life. Take that posters advice,GET SOME HELP! You are dealing with something you cant control and there is help for you and the rest of your family. Lord God woman! I am so glad I dont have to deal with your attention seeking behavior in person!no wonder your sister dont have anything to do with you. YOU ARE A KNOW IT ALL and dont know anything and wont believe what is RIGHT IN YOUR FREAKIN FACE!

There is no need to try to explain anything to Debbie. Her illness prevents her from believing anything except what she wants to believe. If you will notice, there has been a handful of posters who believe Debbies delusional story and well over 700 who has tried to show her why her brothers story is a delusion and she still will not believe anyone. She is going to blame everyone except who is the cause and there is nothing anyone can say to convince her it could not have happened the way he thinks it did. This is just another symptom of her illness and until someone in her family steps up and commits her, she will never seek the treatment she needs. Debbie believes there is nothing wrong with her but everyone else has problems. She herself has stated her sister has nothing to do with her and if she dont seek treatment, the rest of her family will be doing the same thing. Her drama and attention seeking behavior will sooner or later wear her family down and they will also avoid her like her sister does. You can only deal with so much before you just avoid the problem. In Debbies eyes, everything she says is true even if it has been proven to her many times that it is IMPOSSIBLE.Her anger issues seem to increase with each post and her defense is all the posters are employees at Broughton which is not true but you will not convince her of this either. In her mind, she is the only one who is normal and everyone else has mental issues. Its sad to see someone dealing with this illness when there is treatment and they will not seek it. Her family has to deal with her daily and it has to be really hard for them to see her acting like this and not willing to get help.
Sooner or later, they will all avoid her and she will be alone in her delusions.

Debbie, I guess someone needs to draw you a map! The reason everyone keeps talking about the wire mesh is IT COVERS EVERY FREAKING WINDOW IN THE WHOLE HOSPITAL! There is NO WAY POSSIBLE that a staff member threw your brother through a window because this wire mesh is on THE INSIDE OF THE WINDOWS!!!!!!!!!!Everyone is telling you this cause your brother is lying to you and you are believing him!!!!!!!And it is highly unlikely you visited your brother in '78 or you would have seen the wire mesh screen!
You have been proven wrong by so many,even by someone who works there and looked it up to see when they were installed. Now, since it is very much apparent that he is lying, DROP IT DEBBIE! No one has believed you since you started with this crap and now there is plenty of proof, so shut up about it and move on!
for one thing if you must get down to it it was door dummy not a freckling window,I may have said window I ment door since you all have to nick pick my words!gosh What the hell!Why are you all trying so hard to prove me wrong?Another thing I said most of the people on here work there not all,because they do,a lot of them even said they did,so u move on if u don't like what I post, then don't read it

Debbie, once again, you are getting your story confused.This is also a symptom of your illness.You are spiraling down and really need to seek the treatment you need.No one is picking your words apart,you story changes with your posts. This is treatable Debbie.Your family would be more relaxed around you if you were treated for your illness.You claim to love them very much,I can not understand why you wouldn't want to make life easier for them.
You have been proven wrong by many many posters because you are wrong.This did not happen as you say it did. No one believes you because it could not happen this way. It is part of your illness to be dramatic about everything and as I have stated many many times, your illness is treatable. Seek the medication you need Debbie and you will be surprised at the difference it makes in your life.

Debbie, your illness prevents you from seeing what everyone else sees. You do need help and I am only trying to help you.A real professional knows the cries for help and reaches out to assist the person. They will not turn their backs on someone who is mentally ill and needs treatment. That is all I am trying to do, Assist someone who needs treatment.I have not bashed you nor abandoned you as your sister has done. I would like to assist you with your treatment. It is not an expensive treatment. As a professional, I see your needs and am more than willing to help you get the treatment you need. Lashing out as you do at others only shows the level of anger you have. I am not bashing you nor making fun of you. I am trying to assist you with the help you need.

Debbie, It isn't I that needs the assistance. I am a trained professional who helps others who are in denial about their problems see that they need treatment.I have only been trying to assist you with your problems and help you with the treatment you need. You would enjoy life so much more if you were treated for your anger problems and attention seeking problems. There is medications for these illnesses that would greatly decrease your behaviors so you could live a normal life. It is only going to get worse without these meds. Your life is already crumbling.Please seek help before it is to late.
