Kansas City Nursing Home Negligence Law Firm

Wasn't Anybody Watching the Door?

Elderly and infirm residents of nursing homes often suffer from conditions of Alzheimer's or dementia that can lead to confusion and frustration. In a nursing home, family may not be immediately available. Initial feelings of abandonment are common. It is no wonder many residents wander off the nursing home grounds and suffer injuries or become sick when they are unable to figure out where they are.

Nursing home owners are required by law to have policies in place that are designed to prevent wandering off, often called elopement. Staff members are supposed to be trained to supervise residents and watch for telltale signs of dementia that may lead to erratic or unpredictable behavior. Simply watching the door or not leaving an at-risk resident alone is often enough to prevent the problem.
