Often it is assumed that nursing home residents who wander away suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Blame is frequently placed on the mental state of the patient while an underlying issue goes unnoticed — nursing home negligence. Care facilities have a professional and ethical duty to provide necessary care and take reasonable preventive measures to protect patients. When they fail, they should be held accountable.
At Domnitz & Domnitz, S.C., our legal team serves as advocates for nursing home patients in Wisconsin and for their families. We know that many residents have a tendency to wander regardless of whether they suffer from Alzheimer’s or from dementia. We do not accept the excuses of those who were entrusted to care for elderly loved ones; we work to hold them accountable. Contact us for a free consultation to discuss your elder care concerns.
Neglectful supervision and security can be disastrous
When nursing homes do not make patient safety a priority, residents suffer. By failing to provide proper care, the residents suffer health risks, such as bedsores, and safety hazards. By insisting on exceptional supervision and security measures, a care facility can significantly minimize the risk of injury to patients. These measures can include:
- Wandering risk assessment
- Individualized care and supervision plan
- Staffing accountability
- Wander guard alarms on doors and windows
- Cordoning off unsafe areas of the facility
If your loved one suffered injury due to a nursing home’s failure to adequately staff the facility, supervise your loved one or enact safety measures, you may have the right to pursue a legal claim of neglect. To find out, call us. Our lawyers can help you determine whether you have a legitimate case and lay out your legal options.
