Other factors in nursing home liability include inadequate training of employees and improper monitoring of patients more likely to wander. A nursing home’s owner could also be found negligent if the facility lacked an alarm system and exits weren’t properly secured.

If a resident appears to be uninjured following an elopement, it may be advisable in some situations for family members to schedule physical and psychological evaluations for their loved one with trusted professionals. Some injuries aren’t readily apparent. Interruption of a resident’s medical regimen (e.g., a heart condition) due to the incident may cause harm as well.
