Darn frivolous lawsuit! Maggots in an injured leg aren’t medical malpractice. It’s alternative medicine.
A jury found the nursing home staff at Renova Health Center in Lake Park responsible for a woman's amputated leg. The women had been suffering from gangrene after having foot surgery, but the staff rebandaged the wound rather than cleaning it. After staying there for 18 days, a doctor reexamined her and found hundreds of maggots on her infected foot and leg. Sonja Isger, Palm Beach Post 05/11/2006 Read Article: Palm Beach Post
