Wandering & Elopement

Nursing Home Negligence: Wandering & Elopement

Pittsburgh Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Fighting Against Negligence

You entrusted the care of a loved one to a nursing home facility for a reason. The facility is supposed to provide the attention, care, and services that a family member so desperately needs. Nursing home providers take on the responsibility of ensuring safety, and they are obligated by state and federal regulations to meet specific professional standards.

A nursing home that fails to monitor its residents can be held liable if a resident is injured as a result.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh nursing home abuse attorneys make nursing home neglect and abuse cases a priority and put a proven record and extensive experience behind clients in Western Pennsylvania and adjacent communities in West Virginia and Ohio.

Wandering & Elopement Cases

Wandering and elopement cases usually involve a resident, most often a cognitively impaired individual who should have been under surveillance. While outside the nursing home facility, the resident may suffer a personal injury or fatal accident because of the nursing home's failure to monitor the resident or take simple steps to prevent elopement.

Residents suffering from Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and other similar cognitive illnesses can act in unpredictable ways, requiring a professional level of attention. Particularly where individuals have shown a history of wandering, a nursing home's failure to monitor, whether as a result of neglect or understaffing, is not acceptable.

If you suspect that your loved one has suffered because of negligence, our Pittsburgh injury attorneys can review your case and provide clear and effective guidance. If you have a wandering and elopement case, we work to recover damages and hold the right people responsible.

There are countless reasons that a resident might not be properly monitored or receive proper care. Unfortunately, the fight against nursing homes that negligently monitor their residents is a continuing effort, and failure to monitor is often just one piece of a larger puzzle.
