The Dangers of Wandering Off

When elderly nursing home residents wander off the premises of the facility, they are exposed to all of the dangers the nursing home is supposed to be protecting them from.

  • Getting hurt in traffic
  • Exposure to the elements
  • Malnutrition/dehydration
  • Falling accidents
  • Robbery and assault
  • Lack of necessary medication

Nursing homes have a number of means of preventing residents from wandering off, including effective use of restraints. They should provide added security measures for residents who are mobile and prone to elopement. Electronic restraints such as ankle bands should be tested and maintained regularly.

Inadequate Security

Nursing homes must also protect their residents from outside dangers. Regulations mandate the use of proper security measures such as lighting, door locks, alarms and security cameras. When dangerous criminals are allowed access to elderly nursing home residents, the residents are not able to defend themselves. Security and staff must be adequate to protect them from harm.
