Default Do I need tamper receptacles here?...

I'm wiring a assisted living facility with only memory care units. All that the units are is a sleeping area and a bathroom. There is NO kitchen or any cooking appliance. Technically, do I need to useTR receptacles.
I've wired buildings like this in the past and have not put them in, but this inspector might be different and if he makes me put them in I want to be able to make a case not to put them in.
I can't find a code ref. that requires it

Why are you still using non-TR receptacles? It's not like they will break the bank..

406.12 deals with TR receptacles.

Also read 517.10(B)(2)....

Call backs because people can't figure out how to plug things to them. They try shoving the cord end with a lot of force and the outlet gets all bent out of shape.
I've actually seen some appliance cords not go into a tr recep. I use p&s.

We just completed an assisted living facility, no TR rec. Per the approved plan.

I only carry TR receptacles.

When installing I plug in my tester... to break them in? Then when I energize I do it again.

So each one twice before I leave. Have found the odd one is a pain and changed it out.

If I was the owner of a commercial garage or a industrial facility I would tell the electrician to take that bullchit out
