Six state employees fired after Lubbock death

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Last month NewsChannel 11 reported that police had been summoned to the Lubbock State School after the death of a 46-year-old resident.  Now, six state workers have been fired in connection with that June 6th death.

The workers were terminated after an investigation by Adult Protective Services confirmed abuse and neglect involving the 46-year-old resident. Sources told us last month that the patient was out of bed, running away from employees, fell, and died shortly thereafter.  An autopsy revealed the death was not caused by trauma.

The Texas legislature just passed new laws designed to overhaul the state school system. As part of the law, the new name for the facility is the Lubbock State Supported Living Center.
