Steve Talks To The Executive Ombudsman

Steve Talks To The Executive Ombudsman

Upon calling and getting an uncooperative response from the ombudsman’s office (Office of Patient Experience), Steve asked to talk to a supervisor. He was put in touch with the executive ombudsman Sam Something, who gave the same uncooperative response, acting as if he knew nothing about it, failing to answer questions, acting like Steve was a nobody making a nobody complaint. That was the feel.

When Steve asked for the person’s name who abused him so he could file a report with the police department and take a restraining order out on the person, he was told he didn’t have a right to any of that information. When Steve asked if an incident report was made out as promised, again this Sam Something, acted incredulous saying he knew nothing about any of it and even if he did that would be private information for the department of human resources or some such department regarding employment and would not be available to Steve. 

So it looked by all accounts that the CCF was protecting a person who committed a criminal act against a patient by failing to report it to the police, since the CCF was the only one with the person’s name, and then failing to make out an incident report saying Steve didn’t deserve to see it, after Katherine Cassidy assured me, his wife, that it would be handled. We don’t even know if his assailant was assigned to that floor, since her name was unknown, except maybe Paulette.

Steve had a right to see it as proof that an incident report was indeed made out and to challenge any inconsistencies. The CCF failed on all accounts to make matters right with the victim of this so-called nurse’s rage and military style interrogation of, thus attempted murder against, a civilian patient being transferred from the ICU after aortic valve replacement surgery to a step-down unit. Once Steve knew that the ombudsman’s office was not going to cooperate, the call ended with the executive ombudsman acting as a defense attorney for the assailant. 

We don’t trust the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. The Cleveland Clinic Foundation that claims to treat their patients like family allowed the abuse of a patient, the abuse of a senior citizen, and allowed a nurse to stroke out a heart patient after heart surgery. THAT’S ATTEMPTED MURDER. All they did was let the nurse go home. For all we knew her shift was over anyway. 

When I was able to talk to one of the nurses, Katherine Cassidy, who came onto the scene, it appears, as a diffuser of the situation, agreed that he was being abused – she heard everything, although she wasn’t in the room. She heard everything I said about calling security and filling out an incident report and said, ‘we’re handling it’.

The ombudsman’s office – the executive person Sam Something – implied by refusal to give the person’s name and to release a copy of the incident report, that it was so frivolous that he didn’t even know about it – and further that Steve had no legal right to that information. And even if he did, then he was calling the wrong department. Human resources would be handling it, but they don’t give out any information either, since it would be an employment issue.

So what good does it do to call the ombudsman’s office only to be treated like that? What resolution was there? None. When they called back they didn’t offer any recourse or offer to investigate the assault – their meaningless words rang silent. They were protecting the assailant and the CCF. As it turns out they are not an unbiased independent organization.

Steve was essentially being extorted. He had to pay for that information by getting an attorney that could get it. So it is legal for an attorney, a complete stranger, to have that information regarding the torture of my husband, but the victim has no right to it, and neither do I, his wife. Lawyers cost money, which we don’t have and they know we don’t have, so we’re both being extorted.

Pay or you don’t get your documents or your day in court. I was also tortured by witnessing the torture of my husband, while no one responded to my screams to stop it. They were laughing. Steve told them his wife is on the phone when they asked who he was talking to. They obviously didn’t believe him or they just didn’t care. They were on a mission to destroy and nothing was going to stop that mission.

Steve kept saying the phone doesn’t work, he can’t call out from his phone or the in-room phone and they kept insisting that it did work without ever checking. Somebody turned his phone and the room phone off prior to the torture and left both off at least up until I checked them myself. the cleveland Police do something similar when they go through red lights in while chasing someone – they trigger the light green so they can get through it without accident, but then don’t untrigger it. A civilian has to call the police department to fix it back to normal.

The next obvious questions are who put her up to it and why didn’t anybody know her last name? Steve said at one point that when everybody finally left his room, the nurses were fighting all night long about it. He could hear them from his room at the nurses station, each time he woke up, they were going at it again – about him.

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation is making every attempt to sweep this 42 minute assault under the rug by acting as if they don’t know anything about it. There’s another lie that makes us not trust the Cleveland Clinic nor the Office of Patient Experience. They both have already taken steps to protect the criminal and blame the victim by not acknowledging what happened or taking steps to remedy it.

Steve is in receipt of a letter stating that the ombudsman’s office has power to investigate abuses and to obtain documents, but Sam Something acted as if they did not know anything about it and made no offer to investigate. This is not a work-related grievance. It was witnessed by all those involved and those who came on the scene and even those who came in the next morning claiming that ‘everyone was talking about it’. Plus it was witnessed by his wife (me) via an open line on the telephone. 

That next morning I went to the CCF to intervene with salt to bring my husband out of electrolyte crisis, because the CCF did not provide salt when needed – even when I told them he was being over-medicated with diuretics and needs salt and the nurse basically agreed, but didn’t follow through, claiming there was no salt, only sugar, “I can give him sugar in the water”, and to extract him from the premises – for abuse and negligence. He was still terrified the next morning when I walked in.

Senior abuse, patient abuse, premeditated murder attempt etc. If I had not gone to the clinic to treat him and retrieve him he’d be dead or on a psych ward misdiagnosed, pumped full of psych drugs till death we do part. Someone or some entity was going to be sure he never made it home alive? What’s the point of that? Revenge against me, his activist wife. “blow her fingers off, she’ll never write again, no kill her husband, she loves the dog, it’ll destroy her, yeah two birds”. 


Employees at the CCF from top on down have neuro-pathways instituted in their brains to facilitate the use of torture tactics when ordered. The CIA actively recruits med students from college. People who could murder their own families if called upon. People absent a conscience. The CCF hires CIA and military doctors. They’re government issued. Every military person, even when discharged, can be called back to serve when and if needed.

CIA recruits don’t believe in GOD – The military tortures for GOD and COUNTRY. Even the FBI, an investigative agency, TORTURES people. Torture is in. When have I seen a movie absent torture? It’s everywhere.

The enslavement, torture and slaughter industry has a big stake in continuing the enslavement, torture and slaughter of animals – huge profits. The CCF has a big stake in animal research and ‘she’s a heavy hitter in the animal rights movement. She’s a terrorist.’ There’s a huge military presence at the CCF from the top tier down who are familiar with torture tactics. What happened to my husband was not a mistake; it was ordered. There were onlookers in the room who did nothing to stop it. Laughed even.

I, Sharon Lee Davies-Tight, a victim of observing the torture of my husband, Stephen Davies-Tight being tortured for 42 minutes in the step-down unit for cardiac surgery after an aortic valve replacement demand a complete and totally transparent investigation of the person and the institution that committed egregious assault. I want that person and the CCF held accountable. Their pattern of abuse is staggering. No lawyer that the CCF couldn’t pay off would take this case – because it’s the CCF. Yes, and those same lawyers may need a valve transplant one day. Fear will keep them from it. 

My husband did nothing to deserve this; I did nothing to deserve this. And we don’t have to prove anything. So stop the focus on the victims to assuage your own guilt. I have a right to my views. This is America last I checked. Maybe you all should be in Russia or Ukraine or China and Iran where this behavior is accepted. Your continued silence makes you complicit.

Next…a placeholder

CIA (CI)? alcoholic guy at Tick Tock Tavern out of the blue falteringly/gingerly asks me, “do you and your husband sleep in separate rooms?” A guy who never spoke to me, no one I knew. 

A cop sitting in his cruiser behind My Friends restaurant who plugged into my WiFi in the middle of the night. We have to get into Sharon’s room. __?__ Sharon Davies-Tight.

Andy, the physician assistant to Dr. Yun, his cardiac surgeon, who saw Steve after surgery in my presence asked, “do you two sleep in the same room?” This same person jumped up and started smoothing her hand all over Steve’s back, while holding his shoulders so he couldn’t move, suddenly asking, “what’s this, in an accusatory way, as she zeroed in on something – this bump, what is it? A cyst I said, and she kept circling it to make sure.

Dr. Garvin another CCF doctor abused me in his office with a trainee, questioning me like I was an enemy combatant, accusing me of calling him a jackass (a word I never used in my life) did the same thing, like he was searching for a wire on my back and chest. Somebody must have warned him ahead of time that I was an activist. 

Stop making enemies out of nice people.

The CCF needs to be held accountable. How many peoples’ lives have been destroyed due to negligence or vengeance and for the sake of science and scientists run amok? Countless.

When it happens to me and/or my husband I know it happens to others. This was not an isolated case. Had I not been on the phone, they all would have gotten away with premediated attempted murder – stroking out a patient after cardiac surgery. No one would know that the CCF killed him. While they’re laughing treating you like insignificant pieces of data, it’s happening to loads of others too fearful to step forward.

Yes, they treat all animals the same, whether human or any other animal at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation notorious for their animal research laboratories. It’s their culture of experimentation, approved by the patient or not, that’s responsible for most injuries. Everybody’s got a stake in it. They’re like factory farms for humans – every surgery being an experiment, follow up, same thing, an experiment, continued long term care, also an experiment. They are experiment-happy, forming every action, thought, word into a study to be studied.

The results? Torture. They never improve. They don’t live up to their written standards; that’s all for litigation purposes; they don’t live up to any of it.

How can a hospital who overdoses people on diuretics, because it makes the stats look good, not have SALT?

Their experimental culture that requires an absence of conscience is designed to go awry from the first design that includes enslavement, torture and slaughter. My husband was kidnapped for at least forty-two minutes by terrorists at the CCF and they’ve done nothing to remedy that ugly. They don’t care; to them animal experimentation, including the human animal is required for better health care and if you die, then you died helping the next patient that comes along. But it doesn’t pan out that way, does it?

Torturing for revenge? Now that needs to be looked at by more than a serious eye for change. If torturers are allowed into your healthcare system, they will find a way to torture, to massage that neuropathway in their brain that keeps itching to apply their torture skills. Once activated it’s almost impossible to irradicate.

Torturing humans is the same as any other animal exploitation. There’s a distance set between subject and experimenter. No empathy. So when the CCF hires CIA and military personnel, be assured that the empathy factor has been trained out of them if indeed they ever had it, when referencing CIA recruited doctors specifically. They are however trained to fake empathy. It can be recognized by the discerning eye, but unlikely by the general population.

Keep the military and CIA and their war strategies on how to control enemy combatants out of our healthcare system and out of the lives of private citizens. Steve and I are not the first people whose lives have been breached by requests made from the private sector. I still don’t know what happened during surgery or after surgery when he left the others to finish up to call me.

Steve was scheduled for the first surgery his doctor was doing that day. Dr. Yun. Steve had to arrive at the CCF at 5 AM for a 7 AM surgery that didn’t occur until 8:38 AM.

We know that he knows about the torture, yet remained suspiciously silent, as did this Andy nurse practitioner who was looking for a wire on Steve’s back and front. How stupid do they think people are that they don’t notice? The executive ombudsman also knew but claimed he didn’t. He sent an email telling Steve he called many times after the surgery, yet on the phone he acted like he hadn’t heard anything about it. Steve has a copy of it. Steve replied that no messages were left, so he called and when we didn’t answer letting the answer machine do it, the executive ombudsman didn’t leave a message, not wanting to leave a trail.

Why would the ombudsman’s office be calling repeatedly after Steve left the hospital if nothing of import occurred? Of course they knew, that’s why they were calling, to get Steve on tape while he was still under the influence of medication, general anesthesia, the trauma of surgery (you should see the bruises) and the post surgery trauma of being tortured and stroked out by the CCF while in the step-down cardiac care unit.

So the executive ombudsman lied about everything to protect this interrogator and the CCF from investigation and prosecution, which makes Sam Something an accessory to attempted murder.

I was taking care of my husbands health and security directly out from the hospital and I allowed no calls except from families, and even they were instructed on how to keep him calm after this horror attack on his person and mind at the CCF. I didn’t want him going over and over the incident when asked over and over by various people what happened. He needed to heal. Even the nurse practitioner who discharged him said that he should not think about THAT with a WAVE of the hand – to focus on something happy.

Any medical personnel would know that after a person’s been tortured you don’t go in and start rapid firing questions at him like he’s an enemy combatant. The CCF wanted to trick him with his damaged mind into saying something that would benefit the CCF in a court of law and were tape recording it. Who and why is responsible for instituting torture tactics at the CCF to control the responses and behaviors of patients?

He needed to heal and the CCF was not allowing that to happen. They kept poking at him, so he couldn’t forget. If they were so concerned as this Sam somebody ombudsman claimed, he would have left messages, which he did not do.

The only ones who left message were debt collection agencies.

I recall one instance when Steve answered the phone and was being questioned. His remark was, yes, pause, then, yes…. I agree. He was forced to use their words, to say yes, I agree to something when he was in no state of mind to be answering any questions about anything. They were getting him on tape saying yes I agree to use further down the road to create tapes using his voice. There would be no valid reason why a patient would be demanded by someone at the CCF to say certain words, yes or no, maybe, but not, yes, I agree. That sounds like a legal document signed verbally against his will and knowledge.

The Cleveland Clinic doctors knew the CCF tried to stroke him out, that’s why they ordered a cat scan of his brain. Nobody gave him an aspirin to chew.

That’s their new family strategy – WE TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY. Yes, family tortures family, and they’re okay with it – nobody complains.

Except the Davies-Tight family.
