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.
This is a prime example of neglect nursing homes. Nursing homes are required to provide the best care possible for their residents. The failure to clean and open wound is a clear case of patient neglect.
