REM Hennepin Minneapolis Substantiated Complaint After Resident v Resident Incident
According to an article from ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, We define resident-to-resident aggression (RRA) in long-term care facilities as negative and aggressive physical, sexual, or verbal interactions between long term care residents, that in a community setting would likely be construed as unwelcome and have high potential to cause physical or psychological distress in the recipient. We believe that, although contextually different from community elder abuse in many ways, RRA also includes a similar spectrum of phenomena ranging from verbal altercation to physical and sexual violence (Lachs & Pillemer, 2004).
