Videos from the fights emerged which shows residents yelling and involving in aggressive physical duels.
As per the report, workers in the facility can be heard saying– “Punch her in the face” and “Stop screaming” in the undisclosed video. Another worker was heard asking for the video to be sent to her later. In another one of the clips, one elderly woman choked the other, causing one of the workers to say, “You’re making her turn red.” All this had been going on and the workers never bothered to intervene and take control of the situation.
