My mother is 94 years old, living in an assisted living facility who wandered off the property(she has documented dementia) and was injured by a fall and was sent to the hospital. The facility had no idea that she was missing and stated that she was at the dinner table, when I called to say she was in the hospital. She broke the bone under her left eye socket, suffered numerous bruises, stitches and is in the hospital in the hospice ward until I move her to a new ALF. Is this negligence on the ALF's behalf and are there attorney's who would take on a lawsuit against an AFL, not a nursing home? Thank you.
