You have my family's full support. We experienced an almost identical loss under the leadership of Stan Butkus. CMS investigated and found understaffing, poorly trained staff and a failure to properly investigate. No one should have to suffer these loses when the State of SC and DDSN are failing to use tremendous funds as allocated to provide care in DDSN residences.

If we the citizens do not protect our citizens in the care of these agencies there is no hope.

Too many cases of abuse and death have occurred in our state's residential facilities. It is the word of the staff versus the individual with a disability as to what happened. Cameras in common areas, especially in cases where the individual is non-verbal and there have been reoccurring incidences of wandering and/or alleged abuse, would help those investigating and prosecuting those responsible.

These homes that are " supposed" to look after our loved ones are not doing what they need to be doing. The staff needs to know about each person living there before they care for them. There needs to be more security. These people, our loved ones, are in your hands! Someone needs to be responsible!
