You are reading page 2 of Resident dies after leaving facility. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

That's my biggest nightmare as a DON is to lose someone and have them found seriously injured or even dead. There were 2 residents in the Detroit area this winter that wandered out and froze to death, one a few feet from the door. I've lost many residents over the years, but have always found them rapidly and uninjured.

I wish I wish I wish I had a lock down facility. We recently had an excellent system installed that required codes to entered before leaving through any of the exits...it was ok'd by the fire marshall prior to installation. AFTER having it installed up and running beautifully...it had to be turned off because the entire building is not sprinkled. REASONING...in the event of power failure you could not see the number pad to punch in the code ALTHOUGH in the event of a power failure...the system automatically is disengaged. Duh! Gotta love the government.

Recently in Delaware a resident wandered into the walk in fridge in the kitchen and got locked in-she lingered in a coma for a time but eventually died....
