ROCK HILL, S.C. — Family members and an employee at a Rock Hill nursing home said a woman wandered outside and was left in the cold for hours overnight on Monday.
On Thursday, state health officials said the Department of Health and Environmental Control is investigating the incident.
Family members said the elderly woman left the Carolina Gardens Assisted Living and Memory Care Center on Lexington Commons Drive near the Catawba River and Interstate 77. She is hospitalized in critical condition, her daughter said.
An employee from Carolina Gardens, who wants to remain anonymous, said the woman left the facility sometime Monday night, one day after the weekend’s winter storm.
“I felt sad and disappointed because somebody was supposed to be watching her and nobody did. She was out in the cold for 10 hours,” the employee told Channel 9.
The employee said Carolina Gardens is facing a staffing shortage and as a result, no one checked the residents’ rooms the night before to ensure all the patients were present.
“That did not happen. Nobody checked on her. She was outside for 10 hours. Couldn’t get back in cause the door was locked,” the employee said. “Nobody found her until 7 the next morning.”
The patient’s daughter told Channel 9′s Tina Terry her mom is in critical condition. She said her focus is on her mom right now, but she has many questions about how this could’ve happened.
Carolina Gardens submitted an incident report to DHEC describing the allegations, health officials said.
DHEC’s report says, in part, that the resident, “was found outside by a caregiver with no visible injuries. As a precaution, EMTs were called and decided to take (the patient), because (her) body temperature was below average.”
An attorney for the patient’s family said Thursday they still have questions about exactly how it happened.
“The patient is currently resting but is being transferred to hospice care,” said F. Craig Wilkerson, personal injury attorney. “The prognosis is not optimistic. This has been a very trying time for the family, and the family is currently focused on taking care of their mother. The family would ask that anyone with information to please contact my office and they may contact my office anonymously, if they wish to do so.”
DHEC officials said there are no past citations against this facility.
Terry visited Carolina Gardens to verify this story and for an explanation on how this could’ve come about. Staff in Rock Hill referred her to their corporate offices.
Channel 9 has called and emailed them for two days without a response.
The employee who contacted Channel 9 said they reached out to the Department of Social Services asking someone to investigate.
“I hope they’re held accountable for their actions, I hope that woman never has to come back there, and I hope she’s safe,” she said.

The second winter storm in less than a week is forecast to drop snow, sleet and freezing rain on at least parts of the Rock Hill region, forecasters say.
And it will come amid the coldest predicted temperatures of the winter.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Chester and Lancaster counties, where up to 4 inches of snow and sleet, along with freezing rain, is possible Friday and early Saturday.
There is no watch or advisory currently in effect for York County, but that could change as forecasters get a better idea on what will happen Friday and Saturday.
Temperatures in the middle 50s Wednesday will be an oasis of warmth in what is predicted to be cold weather otherwise.
A cold front is predicted to move through the Rock Hill area Thursday, and temperatures are forecast to drop quickly in the afternoon and evening.
Off-and-off rain is expected Thursday, but the precipitation is expected to change to sleet and then snow Thursday night before ending temporarily.
National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Rehnberg says accumulations from the Thursday night precipitation should be a half-inch or less.
On Friday, low pressure is predicted to develop off the South Carolina coast and then move up the coast.
Computer guidance is split on how strong the system will be. That is making it difficult for meteorologists to determine how far inland the frozen precipitation will fall.
The National Weather Service office in Columbia says it expects a significant accumulation of ice across the Midlands and the northeast part of the state. Snow, sleet and freezing rain are then expected to move into North Carolina, with the eastern half of the state getting the heaviest precipitation.
“All things considered, however, uncertainty still looms large in this forecast,” Rehnberg says.
He adds that the split in computer guidance “indicates considerable question over the ultimate location of the developing surface low, and the timing of dry air arriving in the Carolinas at the tail end of the system, which would impact the duration of any precipitation.”
One thing is certain, however. Any frozen precipitation that falls Friday won’t melt quickly.
Temperatures are not expected to climb above freezing Friday in the Rock Hill area, and highs Saturday are predicted to be in the mid 30s, despite sunny skies.
The cold weather is forecast to continue through next week, and some forecasters say there could be another threat of a winter storm in the Southeast near the end of next week.

After a winter storm caused area schools to cancel in-person classes Tuesday, another storm is predicted to roll in Friday.
According to weather correspondent Steve Lyttle, the forecast shows the possibility snow, sleet and freezing rain on at least parts of the Rock Hill region. And it will come amid the coldest predicted temperatures of the winter.
The National Weather Service also has issued a winter storm watch for Chester and Lancaster counties.
In preparation for these conditions, many area schools are transitioning to e-Learning on Friday.
Here are the plans for the districts that currently have reported their plans.
Check back for updates on this developing story.
In an email to parents Thursday evening, Rock Hill Schools announced it will have an eLearning day. The email said district and school facilities are closed, including for activities and sports practice.
“The possibility of icy roads is concerning for us in getting buses to the schools in the morning but then also getting them home safely later in the day as temperatures will not rise above freezing,” the district wrote. “Wet pavement combined with freezing temperatures can create dangerous conditions for our buses, student drivers, faculty and staff.”
The email advised parents: Students in grades K-12 will have access to digital materials through Canvas and Seesaw and can access those sites through Launchpad. Assignments will be posted in Canvas and Seesaw by 9 a.m. Friday morning. Pre-K students have eLearning packets in their backpacks.
Students will be assumed present and given five days to complete their work, in case they lose power or access to the internet.
The district says elementary teachers will be available to help with questions from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. High schools and middle schools will communicate their individual office hours to parents.
Fort Mill will transition to eLearning.
According to a district statement, schools have adjusted because of “the possibility of ice on the roadways overnight and a wintry mix tomorrow afternoon could cause unsafe traveling conditions for our buses and cars throughout the day.”
All schools and district facilities will be closed and all after school activities and programs are canceled.
Teachers and schools have plans for eLearning and will communicate more information about the instructional day, the statement said.
Lancaster County School District is also converting to eLearning.
“Please look for more information from your child’s school and individual teacher for what this means for your student,” officials advised in a statement. “We understand that with this type of weather, there is the potential for loss of power and internet service, which would impact the ability to access virtual learning. If you should have a power or internet outage, please know that we will work with your student to address missed assignments. Above all else, please take all precautions to remain safe during this weather event.”
The district encourages parents to continue checking its website (www.lancastercsd.com) for more updates.
York School District One
“Out of an abundance of caution, York School District One will shift to eLearning tomorrow, Friday, January 21, because of potentially severe winter weather predicted for our area,” a release from YSD said.
All afterschool activities and sporting events are canceled for Friday, January 21. A decision will be made about sports and extracurricular activities scheduled to occur Saturday, January 22 at a later time.
Families should monitor their emails for updates regarding schoolwork Friday.
Students will have the opportunity to submit their work when they return to school in person if unable to submit while at home, the statement says.

With sub-freezing temperatures expected Monday night and roads wet after having been covered Sunday with snow and ice, school systems are making decisions about how they will proceed this week.
Traditionally, if roads weren’t deemed safe due to winter weather, students didn’t go to school. When COVID-19 hit, districts across the country invented and introduced a range of virtual school options.
This is what The Herald now knows about school plans this week in this region.
A release from the Rock Hill School District at midday Monday said “Rock Hill Schools will engage with eLearning Tuesday due to the forecast of refreezing ice that will make it unsafe to open our buildings.
“All district buildings and schools will be closed to our team, this includes facilities and custodians.”
The district, through the state, has the flexibility to use five eLearning days each year for inclement weather. That means in the event of ice, snow or torrentially terrible wind, the district would use an “eLearning day,” which, in other words, is a day when students receive work through an online platform and must complete it within a certain time.
“If for some reason we run out of eLearning days, we would use the weather days (snow days) and then have to make them up as dictated by our calendar make-up days,” said Lindsay Machak spokesperson for the school system.
Clover and York districts are scheduled to be off Tuesday.
The Clover School District board voted last week during a special meeting to move the originally scheduled teacher workday from March 14 to Jan. 18. The calendar change was made because a significant number of staff are out as a result of COVID-19, according to the district’s website.
Clover School District spokesperson Bryan Dillon told The Herald in an email that the district’s calendar has three days built in to be used as bad weather make-up days, which is required by the state. The district also has the ability to call an “eLearning day” in the case of inclement weather, he said.
Since the district has the ability to plan in advance, the district could call an “eLearning day” on Wednesday if the weather requires it, Dillon said.
“CSD will be closely monitoring the amount of weather we receive and its impact on our roads,” he said.
York School District students also are scheduled to be off Tuesday. York School District spokesperson Tim Cooper told The Herald that the district is monitoring the weather and has started considering its options.
The district’s board voted Thursday during an emergency meeting to amend its calendar, moving the originally scheduled teacher workday on Feb. 18 to Jan. 18, according to the agenda. The change was made to “assist with staff and student COVID-19 numbers that are reaching a critical point,” according to a release from the district.
The Chester County School District has been advised by Emergency Management that due to Sunday’s winter storm, road conditions will not be safe on Tuesday morning, Chester County School District spokesman Chris Christoff said in a statement.
Tuesday will therefore be a remote learning day, Christoff said.
Students will work independently on assignments, but teachers will advise students of all assignments for the day and will be available during normal school hours via email to provide support as needed.
As of right now, the school at CCSD will return to normal operations on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, Christoff said.
The Lancaster County School District also will cancel school Tuesday, according to a post on their Facebook page.
“Please look for more information from your child’s school and individual teacher for what this means for your student,” officials wrote in the post. “If you should have a power or internet outage, please know that we will work with your student to address missed assignments.”
Due to the possibility for unsafe traveling conditions following the winter storm this weekend, all Fort Mill schools will transition to eLearning for Tuesday, a statement from the district said.
All afterschool activities and programs are canceled.
Schools will communicate more information for how the instructional day will operate, the statement said.
Because Fort Mill will have an eLearning day rather than cancel school, there will not a need for a make-up day later this year.

Editor’s note: Today The Herald continues it s series of articles looking at economic development in some key areas of York County, both in 2021 and into 2022. Responses have been edited for space. This article focuses on Rock Hill, the state’s fifth largest city.
Pro football, new restaurants and bars, revitalized business sites, a plan to reshape the south side. Rock Hill either has it, or it’s on the way.
Jennifer Wilford is director of economic and urban development for the city. It’s a busy job of late with a long list of 2021 projects and still more on tap for 2022.
Here are some of the highlights Wilford sees in the city:
What are some of the biggest business openings, projects or success stories in Rock Hill for 2021?
2021 was a big year for Rock Hill! Even amid the pandemic we had several major announcements. It’s hard to narrow down the list but here are the ones at the top of my list:
? The Perch at Cherry and Oakland which already announced Hobos and Off the Tracks brewery
? The Exchange, a mixed use retail and residential development that has already started to change the footprint of our downtown and welcomed the installation of world renowned artist, Shepard Fairey’s, mural this fall
? The Nest at University Center, a 305-bed student housing development
? The Common Market on West Main Street
? The Gravity Center, York County’s hub for entrepreneurship
? The Cotton Warehouse along Dave Lyle Blvd which is being transformed from an old textile mill structure to a new bar concept called Hoppin’
? And the announcement of White Point’s redevelopment plans for the former Herald site
We also welcomed several exciting industrial projects including DIRTT Environmental Solutions, Scentsy, Arrival, and the first business in Aspen business park, The Southwood Corporation.
As the calendar turns to 2022, what’s the biggest ongoing economic development project in Rock Hill? How will it change Rock Hill?
Certainly the Panthers project is a major ongoing economic development project that is going to change Rock Hill in major ways. It is bringing major investment, job opportunities, recreational amenities and the NFL to our community. We are so excited for its 2023 opening.
But I have to say, what I’m most excited about going into 2022 is the Clinton ConNEXTion action plan and the tangible vision it lays out for the revitalization of the Southside of Rock Hill. This began as a grassroots, community-driven planning effort to define and prioritize the community’s wants and needs. A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes for many years, and I think 2022 is the year we all begin to see the fruits of those labors.
What’s a major business development effort that will happen in 2022 that folks may not know much about yet?
Well, I think to some degree that may also be the Clinton ConNEXTion Action Plan. The plan was finalized this summer, and I think is starting to gain some traction in the public, and I hope we see more of that in the upcoming year. Implementation of the plan has included a new proposed Southside Tax Increment Finance district, which will create a funding mechanism to accelerate the overall implementation of the plan.
Also included in this proposed TIF district is a large swath of industrial property along I-77 and Porter Road. These properties create the opportunity for industrial recruitment on a much larger scale than anything we’ve seen before and we are looking forward to ongoing conversations with these property owners to define a vision and strategy for what this area could become.
What’s the biggest business challenge Rock Hill faces in 2022?
Unfortunately, Rock Hill is not immune to the same challenges we are all facing at a national level — labor shortages, supply chain disruptions and high material costs.
What businesses will folks see more of Rock Hill at the end of 2022 than they do now?
Restaurants! Rock Hill is already a great place to find amazing food, and 2022 looks to be on track to welcome even more great restaurants.
