Wandering Off from a Nursing Home
Experienced Phoenix Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys; Representing Victims of Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home residents suffering from dementia and other cognitive disorders must be confined to secure areas to protect their safety. When nursing homes fail to meet this obligation, residents can wander off into city streets and other dangerous environs. If someone close to you has been injured or killed due to “wandering off” from a nursing home, the knowledgeable attorneys at The Breslo Law Firm are here to help.

Understaffed Nursing Homes
Many wandering off injures are simply the result of understaffing. When there are not enough staff members, residents with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are prone to wander off the premises, away from the security of the nursing home.
Injuries Caused by Wandering Off
Not every incident of wandering off results in injury, but nursing home residents who wander away from the safety and supervision of their homes are vulnerable to wide range of injuries, including:
- Falling injuries
- Getting hurt in traffic
- Exposure to the elements
- Starvation and dehydration
Our attorneys have extensive experience handling nursing home abuse claims and are adept at establishing patterns of abuse and neglect in these facilities. An Arizona nursing home dehydration lawyer at The Breslo Law Firm has the skills and resources to file a claim for monetary compensation on your loved one’s behalf.
