When Nursing Home Residents Wander Off
When nursing home residents wander off from the safety of the residence, they can be exposed to many dangerous elements. It is the responsibility of the nursing home and staff members to ensure that residents are continuously monitored and do not wander off. When they fail to meet this obligation, elderly nursing home residents can suffer serious injuries and even wrongful death.
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we know the signs of nursing home neglect and where to find the evidence needed to prove a case involving wandering off (elopement). We know because our attorneys have been doing this kind of work for people in Memphis and the surrounding areas of western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi for nearly 40 years. Let us put our skill and experience to work for you.
