Criminal Neglect or Standard of Care?

Published on October 20th, 2017

WREG reported that maggots were found inside the wound from an amputation according to police.  Memphis Police said they are investigating an elder abuse case involving a patient.  According to a police report, the elderly resident of Ashton Place was transferred to the hospital after he started running a high fever. Hospital workers discovered five open wounds to different parts of his body and a bruise to his stomach during treatment.  Ambulance service employees also said they had found the man in feces.

“Even the police got violently ill witnessing that,” the victim’s daughter said.  “I’ve been in the medical field for a while and this is one of the worst I’ve ever witnessed and this is my father,” the victim’s daughter said. “It’s indicative he wasn’t getting basic care.”

As nurses were treating the individual, they discovered the staples had not been removed from his right leg and the bandages were labeled “October 7.”
