A man admitted to Azalea Court Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for rehab for a broken leg, soon realized he was getting more than rehab at the facility he chose to help him- maggots.  The maggots were seen in an open wound during a dressing change.  Azalea Court’s complaint and inspection reports from the past several years did not reveal any glaring problems. Investigators from the State Attorney’s Office visited Tuesday.
