Kansas City Wandering and Elopement Lawyers

Nursing home residents must be monitored carefully. When nursing home staff fail to do this, residents can wander off into unsafe parts of the premises or wander off the premises completely. This can result in falls, accidents and even death.

At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we are knowledgeable about the steps that nursing homes can take to ensure residents do not wander off. We can readily identify when a nursing home has been negligent in providing the resident with the standard of care. If your loved one wandered off (also known as eloping) while in the care of a nursing home facility, do not hesitate to contact our Kansas City wandering and elopement attorneys online. You can also call us at 816-399-5149 to arrange your free initial consultation.

The Nursing Home Care Act Is Designed to Protect Nursing Home Residents

According to the Nursing Home Care Act, "nursing home facilities and staff must comply with strict regulations to keep nursing home residents out of harm's way." Failure to monitor a resident is the leading cause of residents wandering off. In some instances, residents can fall and break bones. In other instances, they may be exposed to dangerous weather conditions such as extreme heat or extreme cold. The reason for this negligence may be traced back to understaffing or failing to perform proper background checks. Our law firm will investigate the cause of the negligence and hold the correct parties responsible for their actions.

In whatever way your loved one was injured, our law firm will pursue maximum compensation for your family's losses. We have the experience, dedication and resources to thoroughly investigate nursing home neglect and hold negligent parties accountable.
