Elopement from nursing homes may indicate neglect

You carefully chose an Ohio nursing facility because you could not be with your loved one every hour of the day. Perhaps you had some scary moments that brought you to the realization that your loved one's Alzheimer's or another form of dementia was beyond your ability to care for. If you researched and found a home that offered a staff skilled and trained to deal with the behaviors in a patient with dementia, you may have felt you made the right choice for the well-being of your parent.

Unfortunately, one of the most common behaviors in patients with Alzheimer's is wandering. Known as elopement when the wandering takes a patient out of the secured facility, this type of behavior can have tragic results. If your loved one suffered injury or worse during a time of elopement from a nursing facility, you may have many questions about how to seek justice.
