Abusing the Disabled

There is a special place in hell for people who abuse children, the disabled, and the vulnerable. The State had a crazy story of abuse and poor training at Thrive Upstate, a facility in Fountain Inn, S.C.

Police arrested Pebble Artrevious Hill, a caregiver at the residential care facility. Police accuse the caregiver of abusing a disabled patient. South Carolina Attorney General’s office charged Pebble Artrevious Hill with abuse of a vulnerable adult.

On Jan. 3, Hill sprayed the body and face of a patient with a disability with disinfectant to “restrict” her movements inside the Facility.

Obviously that is abuse, and against any reasonable training. What is going on at Thrive Upstate?
