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

Debbie is what is known as a troll on these boards. Basically she is seeking attention, any type she can get. She is just like a child and will do whatever it takes to get attention. If no one replies to her bogus posts, she will get tired of not getting the attention she is seeking and move on.

I agree with the posters who stated Debbie is adding ALOT to the story and leaving out key info. One of the biggies is this MIGHT have happened to her brother 30+ yrs ago. Its really hard to believe anything she posts since her story seems to keep changing and I dont think she really KNOWS what happened if anything really did happen. Also, People are not put in a mental hospital because they can not sleep. That is not a mental illness. They dont even do sleep studies at mental hospitals. Debbie has posted so much stuff that she can no longer keep her stories straight. There is nothing that can be done about something that MAY have happened 30+ yrs ago and she really needs to move on. Telling the truth dont seem to be an option for Debbie.Attention seeking behavior seems to be a problem for Debbie.

Debbie:

There is a huge chance all posts form "Sims" are from the same loser. The internet is supposed to be fun and informative. Unfortunately, being able to remain anonymous allows certain twisted and and otherwise unimportant people a stage where they can act out their failure onto others.

You are are better than this. these people operate out of fear. fear that others will discover how insignificant they truly are.

Piss on them and don't give them the small satisfaction.

Happy new year and keep the faith

I work in the mental health field as well. I also have a step son diagnoss with mental illness and behaviors. We are actually thinking this might be just what he needs. Im tired of the behavior and know one does want him living in their homes because of the behaviors. His mother and father both can not handle it. He has been kicked out of every group home and assisted living because of the behavior. He absolutely knows right from wrong and knows the behaviors are unacceptable. I absolutely dont want him beat on or hurt. I couldnt imagine having his mental illness and if i could would take it away. But at what point do you say enough is enough. I agree with you Jessie. I thank you for helping people like my step son. I love working in this field but i dont have the guts to do Broughton.

There is several group homes in the western nc that house people with behavior issues. If your step son is under the legal age, there are more homes for them. You really need to research them and find the best one for his illness. You should also go back through all the above posts and read each and every one. Debbie is not really someone you should take advice from.Her story changes with about every post she makes. Do your own research and find the group home that handles his behaviors. There are quite a few and each one deals with different types of mental illness.

When did you get your discharge papers? SIMS is quite a big town. Guess you have not figured out to search that out. duh!Also, MOST people know that the area it states you are from is NOT where you ACTUALLY live. It is where the main office of whoever you use as a net provider is located..Now old smart one.. Can we say who flunked out of the class of 1991??? YOU!

Well, it was nice while it lasted. If everyone will take notice, Debbie dropped all her drama crap when she no longer got the attention she was seeking. Then someone had to come along and reply to her off the wall posts and in less than a day, Debbie is right back on here.. PEOPLE SHE IS A TROLL!!!!!!!!!! It has been proven! Leave this post alone and she will leave again. She can not survive without attention and she will go somewhere else and spew her long drawn out story that could not possibly be true.
Leave the troll aka Debbie to starve for attention and seek it elsewhere.

Kendell what do you know about the net provider Merck Link. We have Dept with them for ten years now. Think we might be getting somewhere. His mom found a group home in Gastonia with ACCT services. It sounds promising.
