Tragedy in North Carolina Nursing Home

March 30, 2009

Regarding the tragic shooting deaths of 11 people in a North Carolina nursing home on Sunday, March 29th, there is little that can be said.  

We offer our grief.  And, our prayers.  

We are in the business of solace and healing.  Let us hope the families of the victims will find both.

    If people want to help:

    To assist with recovery from this tragic event, the North Carolina Health Care Facilities Association has set up a charity for the victims and their families. The Carthage Crisis Assistance Fund will provide coordination and a focal point for the already overwhelming outpouring of support from the public, according to the NCHCFA.

    Donations to the relief effort may be sent payable to:

    Carthage Crisis Assistance Fund
    North Carolina Health Care Facilities Association
    5109 Bur Oak Circle
    Raleigh, NC 27612

    Contributions may also be taken to any branch of Capital Bank.


  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people at Pinelake Health & Rehab and the friends and family members of those who died. It appears that this horrible incident is a case of domestic violence.

    Because this is such an important issue, we want to help educate health care workers about domestic violence–and how it can spill over into the workplace.

    If you would like a copy of our CNA inservice, Understanding Domestic Violence, please call us at 877.809.5515. We will forward the inservice to you, free of charge.

    This is IN NO WAY a “sales pitch”. We do this in an effort to spread the word about domestic abuse, in the hope that a similar tragedy can be avoided in the future.

    Sincerely,
    The Team at In the Know
