No charges in Broughton Hospital patient's death

Oct 14, 2007 Full story: Charlotte.com 1,341

“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

Debbiekaydeedee take her up on her offer.Anyone with half a brain can see that your story has many many holes in it and changes every time you post under your many different user names.
Google attention seeking behavior and you will find you have ALL the symptoms.People with a mental illness dont think they have a problem but their family and friends are the ones who suffer through this. You posted on morganton forum that your sister and brother wont have anything to do with you.. Get treatment before the rest of you family do the same thing.No need in making them suffer when there is help out there for you. And before you just on the "she works at broughton "soap box, I do NOT work at Broughton nor have I ever worked there. I live way to far away from there to work there.

DebbieKayDeeDeeCandy, Mental illness is NOT funny. Because you refuse to face the facts and seek the treatment you need, you have family members who avoid you!!! And you find this funny????? You need to get help before everyone else avoids you. Mental Illness is nothing to laugh at. Act like an adult and get the help you need!!!!!!! Before none of you family will have anything to do with you. Its bad enough already that you have a brother and sister who avoids you like the plague.I can not believe you want to put the rest of your family through hell because you are not woman enough to face the facts and get help. Your attention seeking behavior effects EVERYONE and you are so self centered you will not get help. Bless your family. I feel so sorry for them.

Folks, Leave Debbie, Kay, DeeDeeCandy or whoever she is alone. She is Mentally ill and is not going to get help until her family makes her get help. She will keep on with her attention seeking and spinning stories until the rest of her family gets sick of it and dumps her like her brother and sister did. They sound like the smart ones in this family. She is to caught up in all the attention she is getting from her crazy posts. Just ignore here and she will go else where seeking attention that she wont be getting on this forum. She already has started spinning her story on the newton forum and replying to herself too.So from now on, I aint replying to her crazy posts. She will be posting again very soon claiming I work at broughton like she does anyone who dont agree with her. She should take that poster up on her offer for free treatment.
So Debbie+ your many many other user names, post away. You are good at replying to yourself anyways. Just another sign of your problem. Your poor family must be living in hell on earth with your issues. Hope they dont have to see you every day.

I am going to repeat this once more
No staff members have ever been murdered at Broughton Hospital. I would absolutely have no problem saying it, were it true.
Again, cite one credible source, just one. Or do you think somehow "they" are keeping this a secret from the general public?
I know far more about documented instances of violence and fatalities at that place than you ever will and I am calling you a liar.
ONE source. Only one..........
Injuries? Absolutely and mostly patient against patient, to be fair.
I do not believe for one second than any staff member ever had the intent to take a human life at Broughton.
But I have witnessed more than once and first hand, physical abuse by staff against patients and as I said, I testified in open court. But is Broughton any worse than the average state hospital? I cannot say but apparently the Federal government thinks it is.
Now should you desire to discuss anything of merit, we can do that. But please, get off the shock factor of alleging staff members being murdered. you're full of shit.
If anyone on this forum is a liar, it is you and Debbie. I have read alot about the issue of violence in mental wards. All over the US and Europe workers have been attacked and even killed by patients. Patients also attack each other. I trusted academic over any crap that you are trying to preach here. Haistakaa vittu!

Everyone on this forum has pretty much figured out Debbiekaydeedeecandy. She cant keep her story straight at all. Everytime she posts something, its a little bit off the original story. She really needs help with her mental illness.

your are really twisting my words again!I didn't once say that pts didn't attact staff, I'm sure they do,that's to be expected,that's why they are there because they can not control them selfs,they are there for help,not to get the shit beat out of them because the staff is having a hard day!

Once again, Debbiekaydedecandy has CHANGED her story. Now, after so many people told her there was no way he was thrown through a window because of the wire mesh screens and she called everyone a liar, she has changed it to a door. Lord, this story has more twists than a mt road. DebbieKaydedecandy, you really need to take the time to go over what you have posted, take notes about what you have said. You are catching yourself in many many lies. Now who is the LIAR?
