"Treatment by a staff member."

A staff member who was the team leader on the evening shift, I believe ignored my distressed state and conducted a very loud and in my opinion, very sexist mobile phone conversation in the ward. It seemed this staff member wouldn't let patients have the remote control for the TV and chose what they wanted to watch. I also believe that when this staff member wasn't being rude and abusive to patients, they ignored us. I have been told that this staff member is always like this and has been working (and I believe getting away with this behaviour) for a long time. Why can't this person be sacked? I believe they are doing great harm to us all.
