HEAL's concerns include the apparent high staff turnover rate implied by the above.  We update the staff information on programs at least annually and the turnover rate at Bancroft NeuroHealth is a serious concern.  It is also a concern that they allowed someone convicted of drunk driving to drive residents of the program and hired that person specifically to perform the job of driving for the Bancroft programs.  It is also a concern that their accreditation comes from CARF, which has and continues to "accredit" abusive programs throughout the country.  See www.heal-online.org/accreditation.htm for additional information and concerns.

EEOC Brings Suit Against Bancroft

Source: NJ.com
Date: September 17, 2003

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against Bancroft Brain Injury Services, claiming a 47-year-old man was denied a promotion by the Mullica Hill agency due to his age and race. Kolma Tobey, of Woodlyn, Pa., was employed by Bancroft since 1995. Since 2000, Tobey, who is African-American, applied three times for promotion to program manager and each time the position was given to a younger, white employee, according to the suit.

Thank Goodness Bancroft is being sold.. It gives families with special needs loved ones, especially those who's loved ones who were beated, sexually assaulted, neglected and some have died due to the carelessness of their "untrained" staff and "untrained" administrators, away out.. No respect and no regard for the persons whom they serve.. I guess with all the lawsuits against Bancroft, especially the most recent one after a family's struggle to deal with all the abuse, bruises, stitches to his head after a staff beat his head... and then following his death when an uncapable staff neglected to keep his eyes on him, this poor young man - non verbal,. choked on a wrapped bagel, got into van "by himself" and choked to death. Shame on the legislatures in Bancrofts district for not protecting our most vulnerable.... It is time Haddonfield residents knew the truth.  Source: http://haddon.patch.com/articles/have-your-say-on-the-bancroft-purchase-tonight  (Special Note: Bancroft may have been sold in 2012, but, it has the same leadership including Rose Dougherty.)
