This Illinois nursing home was fined for failure to provide adequate supervision to prevent residents from leaving the facility unsupervised. The facility did not have a system to continually monitor the front exit door and did not implement care plans for at-risk residents nor implement the facility’s wanderers’ policy. These failures resulted in three residents leaving the facility undetected.
