Wandering Off and Elopement

Nursing Home Resident Wandering Off and Elopement Attorneys in Cleveland

Elder Eloping and Nursing Home Care

We trust nursing home facilities and their staff members to keep our loved ones safe. Sometimes, because of age, dementia, or other medical conditions, our loved ones require additional observation to keep them from wandering away — or “eloping" — from the facility or its staff members. These residents are the most vulnerable to dangers outside the facility.

Unfortunately, residents of nursing home facilities don't always receive the observation they require. You need to know your rights. Our firm is knowledgeable, caring, and dedicated to pursuing the rights of our clients. We can advise you and help you through this difficult time. As we are very experienced in these cases involving negligence and abuse in nursing homes, you can have confidence in our assessment of your case and our ability to represent you.

Why Do Nursing Home Residents Wander Off?

There are different reasons why a nursing home patient might leave the facility without the knowledge of the staff.

For example:

  • Sometimes, this is the result of inadequate training of nursing home staff.
  • Other times, it occurs when an inadequate number of properly trained staff members are assigned to care for the residents.

Regardless of the cause, when a nursing home fails to prevent a resident from wandering away from the facility, that resident can suffer serious injuries or even death as a result.

Some potential types of harm that could befall the resident include:

  • Falls
  • Assaults
  • Exposure to cold or harsh weather
  • Other dangerous situations
