Nursing Home Wandering and Elopement in Memphis

Though we have a right to expect the highest quality of service and compassion for our loved ones when they are placed in nursing homes, sometimes this is not the level of care they receive. Abuse in nursing homes can take many forms, including physical, sexual, emotional, or financial.

Some of the most serious of these abuses is a lack of attention and security that allows residents to wander or elope. Wandering refers to aimless movement throughout the facility where the resident puts his or her safety at risk. Elopement refers to the resident's ability to leave the facility unsupervised and unnoticed, also putting the resident's wellbeing at risk. Nursing homes and attendants that shirk their expected responsibilities and allow these dangerous events can be held responsible for any injuries that may occur as a result.

Has someone you know been injured due to Memphis nursing home wandering or elopement? If so, you may be able to file a nursing home negligence lawsuit to seek compensation for medical bills and pain and suffering.

  • Memphis Nursing Home Wandering and Elopement

    Most frequently found among residents with degenerative brain disease or mental disorders, wandering and elopement are risks which nursing homes must be proactive in preventing. Each resident is required to be evaluated and offered a level of oversight determined by their condition. When a resident is left unsupervised while mobile, serious dangers ranging from slip-and-fall accidents to exposure to inclement weather, may present themselves. Confused and lost residents may hurt themselves, get helplessly lost and mentally overwhelmed, and not have the medical care on-hand for problems that may occur.

    Memphis nursing home facilities must be equipped with essential security measures and sufficient supervision to prevent wandering and elopement. If a Memphis nursing home fails to prevent wandering or elopement, they may be guilty of nursing home neglect and liable for any resulting injuries or death.
