Has anyone heard about the news reports of abuse at Rescare? It supposedly involved duct taping a resident and leaving her in a car. I was told it was on CNN. Please tell me this is just a rumor. Anyone know anything about it?

It was just one guy that did it in Charleston. I'm not condoning the terrible behavior, just hoping people don't blame Rescare for one idiot's behavior.

So it really happened? It makes me sick. A friend of mine has family in Rescare and it upset me just thinking about it. I just hope the workers and management at Sville aren't like that. They have such a high turnover there.

HA! when a 20 year woman or man with no more qulifactions than a high school diploma or GED and a drivers license is given lord and reign over elderly men and women, when they can scream at a 50+ woman about a cup of coffee or yell at a 50+ year old man that's half crippled because they have some mobility and neurological issues. THAT is abuse. The fact the people that work there still don't understand that speaks volumes about the culture the permeates that place.
When you're out about in the community and you see that big white van full of staff and consumers just sitting in a parking lot for 30 minutes at the park without purpose while staff smoke. THAT is abuse.

I completely agree, BFK. I worked at summersville rescare for years. The way upper management expects the staff to treat the clients is ridiculous and considered abuse in my eyes. I loved all of the clients very much and constantly got write ups because I would sneak the clients extra food...the meals they get there aren't big enough to feed a bird. Those clients are way too special to be treated the way they are. They became my best friends, and they deserve to live a happy life, not be controlled and basically starved to death. It's a shame.
