Without proper supervision or safeguards, nursing home residents can become confused, wander away from the facility, and get hurt. Nursing home operators have reason to expect this may occur as many patients or residents suffer from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. If your loved one has been hurt after walking away from such a facility, you deserve an experienced attorney to help protect his or her rights.
Hudson & Castle handles all matters related to claims for injuries sustained when a person wanders off from a nursing home because of negligence in supervision or monitoring. We protect the rights of individuals suffering from dementia or other similar medical conditions, including medication-induced disorientation, and have successfully handled claims involving injury resulting from:
- Failure to monitor patients/residents
- Failure to provide sufficient staffing or training
- Lack of safeguards, including safe exits and entrances
- Failure to maintain equipment, such as keeping fresh batteries in monitor or other devices
