O'Berry Center Death Investigation Continues

A state-run medical center in Goldsboro says it will implement policies that create closer supervision and increased monitoring, after a patient's death.

O'Berry Neuro-Medical Center in Goldsboro is under investigation after one of its residents died last week.

Federal surveyors found that O'Berry Center did not meet a federal standard. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services did not elaborate on where the center fell short of standards.

Four workers at the center are on leave as the resident's death is investigated.

According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, about 430 clients are treated at O'Berry Center.

Today, approximately 430 clients from the South Central Region are treated. The treatment philosophy is to assist clients with mental disabilities with independence in self-help skills with vocational programs.
