RE: Covenant Health Villa Caritas – cold room – 16515 88 Avenue, Edmonton, AB. -Unit # 2 A – Room 2117 –
Again the heat in Room 2117, has been turned down. The resident determined that some other rooms had appropriate heat.
Who are the abusers who directed maintenance staff to turn down the thermostat @ Room #2117?
It is difficult to comprehend how allegedly compassionate people in a Catholic care facility would direct the turning down of thermostats to unacceptable environmental levels at this time of year, especially on a geriatric ward.
It is known that the building is poorly constructed and when the rooms are cold, the bathroom and shower areas are even more uninhabitable.
