Injuries Caused by Wandering or Elopement
Nursing homes owe a duty of care and responsibility to the residents. Nursing homes are expected to provide safety to the residents including taking steps to prevent wandering and elopement. Elopement is the act of wandering away from the nursing home and not returning. If a resident wanders into unsafe areas, it can result in serious injuries to the resident.
Due to their age, health and physical conditions, certain areas of the nursing home like the kitchen, pharmacy, laundry or loading dock can be dangerous for the residents. The nursing home must secure such areas.
