The director of maintenance for some nursing homes in NYC sent me this photo and asked how to avoid this problem in future installations.  The staff bumps into the locked door hard enough to flex the door and get it to unlatch, eventually wearing the latchbolt, loosening screws in the face plate and strike, and damaging the door.  Any constructive suggestions?
