“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

I am happy you are back Debbie! I hope you are ok. I honestly was worried about you. Today in Turku Finland they held a mad pride march. I really wanted to go, but I have to work today. Oh well.

Just to let you know, I do not have no kind of disorder except anxiety disorder,Im not a liar ,these who know me know this as well,I'm really a fun person to be around,I love people,im not always right,but I am right about what happen to my brother in Broughton hospital ,I truly love my brother,he is a good person ,just because a person has mental disorders don't make them bad people .Nor does it give anyone a right to abuse them in anyway .I just want the truth to be out so someone else loved one or anybody else for all that goes to go threw the same bs my brother went threw.Ever thing I put on here is true,people just twisted everything said around to discredit me,specifically those people who wrote on here ,the sick staff at broughton hospital ,I am not on medication nor have i ever been on any,except for my diabetics.Believe what ever you want to,karma is a *****!it will come back on these who do wrong to other people,and yes mentally ill people are real people they have feelings too

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 family's sake. She has to be realllllly hard to deal with in real life.
haha your sure do have some mental problems hun.Go get help please,I dont know you at all nor does any of my family,bless you have a great day

And what about my uncle who was killed by 2 male pts in the elevator at broughton? He worked there to care for the mentally ill people that were dumped there by their family members instead of taking care of them and seeing that they received the treatment they needed to remain at home. Instead of taking them to mental health, they dump them at broughton and the staff there has to care for them. Do you think the family of these 2 men who killed my uncle helped care for his children after he was murdered by them? NO.. Did the state take care of these children that lost their dad to the hands of 2 mentally ill people in broughton?? NO.
From all the reports I have seen about this case, Anthony Lowery was fighting staff and other residents and until you have worked the ward at broughton and had to fight for you life, you dont have a clue what it is like when a mentally ill person decided they are gonna kill you. They have way more strength than a normal person and if its my life or theirs? You can bet your bottom dollar I am going to do what I HAVE to do to save myself. Yes, my uncle was murdered at broughton by 2 pts and yes I also work at broughton..
People like you, on the outside looking in, should keep their mouths shut until they have walked in the staff's shoes. When we walk on the wards each day, we dont know if we will come back out alive or on a stretcher like my uncle did. silat pencak, you have NO IDEA how dangerous working at broughton is. And until you come work high control or on the admit ward for awhile, you need to back off with your 2 cents worth,
I truly am sorry for your lost,I do know what im talking about,with all the anger you have inside of you,maybe you should not work there anymore,oh thats right ,if you didn't there you wouldn't have nobody to take anger out on.They dont have to be beat give them a shot of that crap you all call medication, and knock them out when they get out of hand,you guys dont have to kill or almost kill the pts there.Its not the rest of there fault that your uncle was killed they didnt do it.

Debbie, you seem to have forgotten your posts where you told us your other user names. DeeDeecandy is one of them and by searching your ISP, we also found that you are Kay at times and several other names. Maybe we should add split personality to your ever growing mental illness list.

I agree here, I am sorry too to here this but two wrongs don't make a right. What did Anthony Lowery have to do with the past incidents? He tossed a trash can not a human. They did not follow NCI which forbids sitting on a ptient's torso.
