hi. i work on a rehab that is inpatient but our unit is totally separate from the hospital and security is only there at night. even then he is not much help with pts. running away due to our track record. there are 5 areas to exit the hospital. docs are hesitant to say the least to write an order for one to one supervision even after the pt. has escaped several times. if i have 6-7 pts. i cannot watch one of them continuously. i document when the pt. has attempted to leave or actually left and been found at the store down the road but this goes on too often in my unit and one day a pt is going to die. some are with it but some are very confused and only know that they want to get away. we had one leave twice this week to be found at the shopping area about a block down. he is a head injury. anyone else have this type of problem?????
