The family a 100-year-old nursing home patient with dementia found dead outside her assisted-living facility on Christmas morning blames woeful understaffing and poor security for allowing the woman to leave the building, their lawsuit said. 

Annie Hanna was found lying barefoot next to her pillow and walker alone on the frost-covered ground in front of the Senior Living Woodmont at around 7.45am, the Tallahassee Fire Department said.

The family matriarch had a broken thigh bone as well as cuts and bruises but died from hypothermia after being exposed to the frigid mid-20s weather, the family said.

Hanna's sister, who roomed with her, attempted to contact facility staff when she noticed Hanna was missing but did not receive a response. 

Her death came days after two other patients escaped the facility but were returned safely. One was found at a Greyhound bus station and the other on the interstate.
