That is not the end of the story for the family of the elderly gentleman. They had the trial date moved up because it interfered with a scheduled family cruise.
Life certainly went on as normal for them. It pays to have connections I guess. As for Hugh, the sentencing guidelines were probation but Emily Laube-Haughton and the incompetent Sherri Bevan Walsh chose to ignore the guidelines and sent a young man to jail.

I have worked hands on care for many residentsin the past 17years. I always said that when I get to the point that I would ever mistreat SOMEONE I would never do this job again!!!! I'm not saying this man HIvely Did or didn't do it.... But I was TRAINED Back in 1989......When they made it law!! that Patients or Residents are to be treated with RESPECT What ever happened to peoples morals and values.....?? IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE RESIDENTS ILLNESS WAS HE SHOULD STILL BE TREATED WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY!!!! AND THE NURSE NEEDS TO REMEMBER AT ALL TIMES THAT THEY ARE TO BE PROFESSIONAL!!!!!!!!!!

You are a moron who probably lets her pets roam the neighborhood too and bite innocent victims and then claim the animal has rights. When a person loses their minds they become mentally like a child or worse an animal and can react as such and nurses while providers have a right to defend themselves as well from harm whether they are paid or not you idiot.

Of course there was a trial after this because the blood sucking hospital sucked up all the money and the family wanted some back so they scapegoated the attendant who was trying to help and he should have just let the old idiot fall on his face somewhere and then call the doctor. Steve

You are a sick heartless excuse for a human being.I bet you would change your way of thinking if something like this actually happened to someone you cared about, not that thats possible making a comment like you did. I hope and pray noone ever trusts you to be around anyone they care about. I would'nt trust you with an animal.

I guess "Concerned In Akron Ohio" doesn't feel that lifting someone off of their feet by their neck is abuse? I've been following this story and I can sum it all up in one sentence:
Hugh Hively pleaded guilty to 2 felony counts.
That pretty much says it all for me! If he's so innocent, why did he plead guilty????
Why would they have a trial if he already pleaded guilty? Someone doesn't have the story straight here.

I pray that you are not a caregiver, never have to care for anyone, you sound like a totally heartless individual. My father has Alzheimers and I was very offended by your comment. I am unfortunately also aware that people like you are out there being trusted to take care of our loved ones. NOT MY FAMILY!! I hope you pray you don't ever have to rely on someone to care of you. You reap what you sow.
My father was a humble,gentle,loving,COMPASSIO NATE, hardworking man who did'nt do anything to cause this terrible disease. SHAME ON YOU!!! I hope to forward this message of yours to as many people as I can. Maybe someone should find out if you are taking care of people and could possibly put your thoughts into action.
remark.
My grandmother got it and became very mean (according to my Mom and aunt), which was a 180° to how she was in real life. It affects different people differently. I've been looking into this for a long time and have learned that she could've been a victim of one of two things (perhaps both). I know that Alzheimers can develop from drinking fluoridated water (which was introduced in Chicago) and from getting flu shots (with thimerosal added AKA mercury), which she did every year. It's sad to think that things she was told to do (as being healthy) eventually led to her demise.

Please cite the prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded clinical trial that proves this conspiracy nonsense about fluoridated water and thimerosol. Conspiracy theories are just "Medicine by Hypothesis."

I have been in the nursing field for almost 11 years now and i have worked at that stow facility 8 years ago and i know how it is i am a 5 ft 105 pound female and everyday i would get the tar beat out of me and they never train you on how to deal with that type of behavior they always told us in class to walk away and to give the resident time to calm down but what if that resident is a danger to him or herself and the others around them? how are you not supposed to restrain them without hurting them or yourself? if the family doesnt want their family member to be sedated it doesnt matter if they send him or her to another place or hospital because the family is going to refuse there as well. so there is no point in trying to move the resident to another place. It is all about gettingthe family to understand what the nurse and the assistance have to deal with everyday in the fear of getting hurt because you are trying to take care of said resident and if you dont then that is also neglect and we still get into trouble so what do you do you try and approach resident and explain what you are doing but most time it doesnt matter because unfort some residents need to be sedated. So more so the family needs to take a step back and try to take the nursing staff point of view and try and do what we do everyday and deal with it everyday and then maybe they will understand that we arnt medicating them for the fun of it but for their saftey as well as ours.I feel for the family and the patient but i can also understand the nurses as well.
