Fined for failure to apply a resident’s body alarm as physician’s orders detail. The body alarm was to alert staff when the resident stood from a sitting position. Staff neglected to put the body alarm on the resident and did not provide adequate supervision. The resident wandered away from the facility and was found near railroad tracks.
