If wandering is identified as risk behaviour, either in the pre-admission assessment, the 24hour assessment or the care plan process then the care plan will direct the staff on strategies to be implemented. A security system on exit doors exists. The Versus pendant (call system) that the resident wears will sound an alarm if the wandering resident attempts to leave the front door. If the alarm should sound the staff have been instructed to respond accordingly.
Staff are trained so that all residents may be taken off the unit or outside without the alarm sounding. Residents who may exit independently do have the freedom of movement.
