Failure to prevent an Illinois nursing home resident from leaving the facility unnoticed. The resident left the facility unnoticed after stating she was going to bed. She later appeared at a trailer park wearing nothing but underwear and a short-sleeve shirt in cold weather. Lebanon failed to keep the facility’s door alarms on, to contact police about a missing resident and to provide evidence that the resident’s elopement was thoroughly investigated.
