Judge grants bond for woman accused of neglect at facility

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The director of a North Charleston assisted-living facility accused of neglecting a resident was released on bond Monday, four days after she was jailed last week.

Andrea Magwood, 68, was released on a $250,000 bond on the charged of neglect of a vulnerable adult, according to Charleston County Detention Center officials.

North Charleston Police Department officers arrested Magwood at Fair Havens Manor at 1917 Cosgrove Avenue on Thursday morning.

According to an incident report, an official with the South Carolina Governor's Office of Ombudsman contacted police on Apr. 5 in regards to the neglect. That official told police that one of the residents at the facility was in such poor health when she found him, he was taken to the hospital for treatment.

At the hospital, medical staff informed authorities the man was severely dehydrated and suffering from malnutrition, along with having a subdural hematoma on the back of his head that may need surgery.

The home was shut down by noon on Thursday. The Department of Health and Human Services says 13 people who were living at the facility were transported to MUSC to receive a full medical screening.

It is not the first time Magwood has been charged with this crime. According to records, she was arrested in 2004 on the same charge at that same facility. At the time, the facility was called Genesis Community Center.
