My father lives in an assisted living community in Michigan. His window is barred shut. When I asked about opening the window, I was informed that windows are not allowed to be open due to the fact that some residents could escape. Does anyone know if this is a policy across the nation, or is it specific only to this community? I also wondered if it’s possible to contest this, or request that the window could at least be opened a few inches to allow for fresh air flow.
