DAL 13-01 - Unsafe Wandering - High Risk Season

Karen Morris and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

Although the unseasonably high heat and humidity this past week may have deterred your at risk residents from wandering outside, the cooler weather that is anticipated in the coming weeks may have the opposite effect.  We encourage you to review the attached DAL with your staff on all shifts and review your policies and procedures to ensure everyone safety during this high risk season.
