WYFF reported another South Carolina health care provider caught physically abusing a vulnerable adult. The licensed practical nurse works at the Pee Dee Regional Center. Arrest warrants claim Jo Ann Graves hit a resident several times in the face. State authorities arrested her for alleged abuse of a vulnerable adult. Video surveillance corroborated the violent allegations.
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division states Graves allegedly hit a patient several times in the face in April 2021. She was also charged with abuse of a vulnerable adult and third-degree assault and battery in June 2021 after allegedly hitting someone in the face multiple times and shoving their head into a wall.
Why did it take so long?
Once again, I am glad video captured the abuse and assault. How many times does this happen where no video exists?
