Wandering-Off Injuries

Nursing homes are bound by federal and state laws to take precautions to keep residents from wandering off the premises. If these precautions are not taken, residents can wander into unsafe locations and suffer serious injuries. Wandering off can make a nursing home resident vulnerable to pedestrian traffic accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, exposure to the elements, dehydration, and other risks.

Wandering-off injuries can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Failure to monitor residents

  • Failure to install or use alarms and other safety devices
  • Failure to train employees
