VERONA, Wis. (AP) -- An assisted living facility in Verona has been cited for failing to provide adequate supervision of an elderly resident who wandered outside and died of hypothermia.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services inspectors found Four Winds Lodge failed to put an alarm bracelet on 93-year-old Edna Biederman, who had Alzheimer's disease.
The State Journal says the facility was fined $845.
Four Winds administrator Lynn Howard told the state that the residential facility has installed door alarms and has purchased two-way radios and a wireless nurse call system to help prevent such incidents.
The Dane County medical examiner ruled Biederman's death in March was accidental.

VERONA, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a 93-year-old woman found dead outside an assisted living facility in Verona died of hypothermia from exposure to the cold.
The Dane County medical examiner's office identifies the woman as Edna Bierderman.
Preliminary autopsy results indicate Biederman's death was accidental.
Police say Biederman was found Friday morning near a sidewalk outside of the Four Winds Lodge, where she lived. Biederman was last seen inside the facility Thursday, but police say it's not clear when.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports investigators believe Biederman left the building on her own and succumbed to the cold. Foul play is not suspected.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, which licenses assisted living facilities and nursing homes, is investigating.
Four Winds Lodge Administrator Lynn Howard declined comment.
