The investigators reviewed a three-page Grievance Letter dated December 25, 2017, documenting that “the resident had concerns with another resident in the room next to hers.” The other resident “yell, scream, use vulgar language, and was abused by the staff” on four occasions between December 10, 2016, and December 14, 2016. The abusive resident “had issues with the loudness of his television and was asked several times to turn [it] down and at night when others slept.”
The reporting incident wrote that “she should not have to be subjected to [the other resident’s] abusive behavior, the environment felt hostile and uncomfortable for her; and she was asking for the facility’s help.”
