“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

Debbie aka Kay, Just one of Debbies many user names.. Know how we can tell this post made by KAY is actually DEBBIE?? The lousy use of the english language. Kays post has DEBBIES name all over it.Nice try Debbie, But it didnt work.
And for those of you who are following Debbies twisted story, hang around for a bit and she will be back here denying she is KAY.
Lets see... So far Debbie has shown symptons of
anger problems,attention seeking behavior and now
multiple personality disorder.And STILL denys there is anything wrong with her but anyone with half sense can read her posts and and see she,along with alot of her family members, has HUGE mental problems.
To recount some of Debbies delusional posts:
Stated brother was thrown threw a window at Broughton Hosp. by staff.
TRUTH: Many many posters have stated there is wire mesh screen on EVERY window at Broughton and some have even stated the DATES they were installed. ALL installed before Debbies brother was a pt there.
Debbie: She KNOWS it happened cause she saw it.
TRUTH: Debbie once again is believing something her mentally ill brother is telling her.IF she was there, why did she not prevent it from happening??
Debbie:Her family loves her and they are always around her.
TRUTH: Debbie stated HERSELF her sister avoids her and so does her brother.
Come on Debbie. At least read you prior posts BEFORE posting something else that is simply not true.
You don't know me and from the looks of the way you text me,You don't know what your talking about.My brother cant have anything to do with me he is handy cap and has no say so.You read my prior post before you post,you seem to be a self center kinda person all about you

Ok, I agree with all the other posters. Mental Illness runs in Debbie aka Kays family.At least her brother did realize it and get help. I am done with Debbie and all her lies and twisted tales.. Treatment would make life better for you DebbieKay but you are just to out there to see it.
So many people have tried to help you but you refuse. One day, Its all gonna come crashing in on you and it will be to late.. Then maybe you will see what everyone has tried to tell you..
Post away and keep adding to your neverending delusion.

stop saying I'm Debbie please.Just because someone agrees with Debbie does not mean that they are the same person.I just as you am intittled to my own opinion .Just because I make an error in my spelling does not mean I have bad garmmar .So Debbie was right you did bash me. Please stop.I think Debbie is right.I am very sorry for her and her brothers pain.She didn't say her brother don't have anything to do with her.She said he has no desision in it

The reason Debbiekay does not give up is she has a mental illness called attention seeking behavior and she is feeding her illness with this forum.

Debbie, Kay will not listen to any reason from anyone due to the type of mental illness she has. She is not going to see that because she believes everyone else is sick and she is the only normal person. Typical mental illness. At some point in the future,someone will have to step up to the plate and commit her before she will get the treatment she needs. I have talked with her about this and basically all she can do it bash me. Other posters have begged her to get the help she needs but she can not/will not see that she has several different mental illnesses. Until she steps over the edge and someone is forced to do something, there really isn't any need to talk to her about it. I really hope the few family members she has left that associates with her will do the right thing. Until then, nothing is going to work. Her issues,anger problems,delusions,attention seeking behaviors are just going to multiply until someone is FORCED to commit her. It's sad to see someone like this and no one caring enough to help them.

I have read all of debbies posts and there is no way debbie and lay are NOT the same poster. They both have horrible grammar, spelling and basically write the same thing. Debbie is trying to boost her self esteem by using the name Kay to pat herself on the back. I have a neighbor who has attention seeking behaviors and this is the same crap she does.. Debbie/Kay are the same person and Debbie is mentally ill.
