A local nursing home resident went for a 15-mile walk.

A resident managed to walk away from Rosewood Care Center in Rockford unnoticed. Luckily, she was found 15 miles away was driven home.

The resident was admitted to the facility for the weekend in order to give her caregivers a much-needed break, but staff failed to identify her as a potential wanderer.

The Illinois Department of Public Health has fined the home $5,000 for improper supervision.
