CYFD Visits Sequoyah Adolescent Treatment Center Again and Doles Out More Corrective Actions
LCA found the complaint credible and also found a lack of documentation of other restraints performed that same day. The incident occurred on November 12, 2012. LCA's findings stated that there was a lack of documentation for justification of restraint done on 11/10/12 and other dates. Documentation also lacked the amount of time a restraint should be used. LCA also found that one of the restraints exceeded the two hour maximum.

In the summary of the report it states:
"The findings identified in this November 2012 Complaint Investigative Report demonstrated continued non-compliance with findings identified during the August 27-September 5, 2012 Investigation and Annual Survey."
It would seem a director (Anita Westbrook) and medical director (Dr. Babak Mirin) would have addressed these issues so that they no longer continue. Unless the director and medical director ARE the problem. Dr. Mirin often boasts to staff that he is the medical director and therefore he is ultimately responsible. Sounds like he is correct. Dr. Mirin is responsible for the current deficiencies at Sequoyah.
