REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Michael T. Parker, United States Magistrate Judge.
THIS MATTER is before the Court on Defendant Michaela Chano's Motion to Dismiss or, in the alternative, for Summary Judgment  and sua sponte for case management purposes following Plaintiff's failure to comply with the Court's Order  regarding Defendant Sandra Siurano's address. Having considered Defendant Chano's Motion  and the applicable law, the undersigned recommends that the Motion  be denied. Additionally, the undersigned recommends that Defendant Sandra Siurano be dismissed from this action without prejudice.
Defendant Sandra Siurano
On November 13, 2013, the Court directed the clerk to issue process to Defendants, including Sandra Siurano. See Order . The United States Marshals Service, however, was unable to serve Siurano because she no longer works for the Federal Bureau of Prisons (" BOP"). See Summons Return . In order to complete service, the Court ordered BOP to produce the last known address of Siurano. See Order . BOP provided an address, but the Marshals Service again was unable to serve Siurano because she no longer lives at that address. See Summons Return .
On September 29, 2014, the Court directed Plaintiff to provide the Court with an address where Siurano may be served with process. See Order . The Court advised Plaintiff that if he failed to provide an address for Siurano by October 17, 2014, she would be dismissed from this action without prejudice. To date, Plaintiff has failed to provide an address where Siurano may be served with process or otherwise serve her with process. Accordingly, the undersigned recommends that Defendant Siurano be dismissed from the action without prejudice pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m).

Plaintiff went to the infirmary at the prison where Nurse Chano laid him on a medical bed. The blood and or bleeding slowed down but did not stop. R/N Chano failed to examine Plaintiff but after 10 minutes told him he would be okay and he needed to return to this housing unit. By the time Plaintiff returned to his housing unit he was once again bleeding profusely from his right side nose and mouth.
See Complaint  at 5.
