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

yes it is suppose to be about your brother but you have changed the story so many times and made it all about you. You have some pretty serious problems and you do need to seek treatment. People have tried to help you on here and as most mentally ill people, you deny you have a problem. so many posters have told you you need help and you deny it..
no you all know I'm right so you all have tried to change the story and make it about me.yes they are some sick people around bt it ain't me

Just take the time to read back over your posts and you will see where you have changed it several times. The main one being how your brother was hurt. after everyone proved to you there was no way he was thrown threw a window, you changed it to a door. There is several others but this is the main one.

DebbieDeDecandyKay is what is known as a troll. She is looking for any attention she can get and has found these forums to post her crap on hoping someone will feel sorry for her. I agree with the other posters that said if you ignore her long enough she will go away. She already cant keep her story straight. So I am going to ignore her and let her seek attention from somewhere else. If she was receiving all the attention she wanted from her family, she wouldnt be posting on here. Bet they are avoiding her like her brother and sister does. I cant say as I blame them. She is nothing but a drama queen looking for attention.

Yes for people who are telling the truth. Do you know the difference between delusions and reality? From your posts, you dont appear to.

empathy do you even know what it means?Im not delusional,I do know what happen,for a fact,I saw the scars on my brothers face,I saw the bruises on my brothers body,I was wt my brother for a long time after he got out of that place,mentally ill people can talk they can tell you what is wrong with them ,they can tell you what happen,if you listen to them,and learn for your self what is real and is not when you talk to them,I saw wt my own eyes!the proof was on his body,in his mind.before my brother went to that place yes he had problems,because another story bout him he was in Jackson training school three people( other boys)jump him beat him and raped him,he was only 16 years old at the time.would that drive you over the edge?wouldnt you need help getting your self back to reality?Fact honest true story.When my mom died back in 96 ,my bother was in his 50s,my sister took custy of my brother ,she said he would be better off without being around me because my ex was a drunk and she didnt want my brother around that kind of thing .true story,you all can call me what you want,and not beleive me,but it is all the truth.all I want is for there to be a better understanding of the mentally ill and for them to stop being abused!I know that they are abused in broughton hospital to this day it still is happening.I just feel so bad for them. They didnt ask to be sick

The biggest problems with your story is you change it often. And you saw the injuries to your brother and believed what he said happened. He is mentally ill and was in a mental hospital and you believe his story? That right there is not normal. He is most likely telling you something that happened in his mind and not in true life. No one is going to believe that he was sitting around, minding his own business when some staff just picked him up and tossed him threw a glass door or window. Most likely he picked on the wrong patient and it was a patient who did this, not staff.
You have made this all about you by changing the story to get attention,several times.with cameras all over the place at broughton, you should KNOW that the staff is not going to do something like you are saying in fear of loosing their job.

The first part of this does not make sense. You have changed your user names several times and it has been pointed out by various posters that you use many different names. You need to seek treatment and take the prescribed meds. You are becoming as delusional as your brother.
As for your attention seeking behavior, you did manage to stay away for about 3 days. Most of us believe your internet was down. If you really want to prove to everyone that you do not show all the signs of someone with attention seeking behavior disorder, prove it by staying off these forums for at least a week. Seven FULL days. I think we all can agree that this is a good test for DebbieKayDeDecandy. I really doubt you can do it. Your symptoms are to out of control.
