Dear Social Service Staff,
I have a concern about a patient in room 832, John smith (fake # rm & name). This patient always bother me and I feel like he's harassing me. He said things to me which makes me feel uncomfortable to mention it all out here. He touching me a few times before which make me feel uncomfortable. I had patients that touching me before but I have no problem with that it's just that I don't feel uneasy with this patient's behaviors at all. Before he came to me and asked me that "Can we have a private talk when you done?" I told him that I'm always busy until the last-minute. Then he asked me "Can I have your number?" I said "I'm sorry, we are not allowed to give our number to the patient." Then another time he asked me for my number again and asked me out to eat with him. I just declined and walked away. With his behaviors I told him that I'm going to report him, I said that to him many times before but he still doesn't stop. The nurse didn't assign him to me anymore but he still bother me. Usually when he bother me I just ignore him and walk away but when I do that he still followed after me and trying to talk to me. Last week when he was bothering me so I just ignore him and walked away and he said to me "You make me feel disgusting." And just recently on May 10 he came up to me and said "You have a mind of a ten years old. Do you know that?" He said that to me because I'm always ignore him when he trying to talk to me. So I told him "Don't bother me again." And he said to me "**** you". This thing has going on for a long times ago but I didn't inform you about this patient's behaviors yet because I thought he would stop when I ignore and don't talk to him but he still bother me. The other coworkers told me to report him because they said "If you don't report him then how do they know that his behavior is like that." And they said "What if he do something to you later." That's why I decided to inform you about this patient behaviors now. I was told to stay away from him because they don't want me to get in trouble. And I always did because I'm scare of him but he still doesn't leave me alone. I just want to inform you about this resident behaviors so that it wouldn't happen to others later too. I'm very appreciated for spending your time reading about my concern. Thanks so much!
This has a thousand and one errors. I will suggest you summarize what you've written in a sentence or two so as not to end up being retrenched from your place of work. No pun intended.
You can summarize it by hitting the nail on the head. Example:
The patient in room x has been sexually harassing me for a while now, and I feel it's about time the organization interfered because the harrassment is getting out of hand. However, I will be glad to provide more details if the board of authorities choose to contact me for further explanation as regards to this issue.
(Dear ... should come first and the above should stand as the body of the letter)
Leave a paragraph and write your conclusion.
Thanks for using your good office in looking into this matter.
Your name and surname.
This is just a model and it doesn't have to be written word for word. I am not perfect either, but I think making a summary is better than what you wrote up there because the more you write, the more you tend to make mistakes. It's advisable to use clear, concise, and simple words in order to avoid ambiguity and also for clarity purposes.
Hope this helps?
