Seniors and the disabled rely on nursing homes and their staffs to provide safe, secure environments.  For residents with cognitive impairments, memory loss, or similar issues, close monitoring may be necessary to prevent injuries.  When a nursing home allows a disabled or impaired resident or patient to wander away from the safety of facility property, your loved ones face unacceptable risks.
