Nursing Home Neglect Leads to Horrific Death of 93 Year Old Woman in Georgia
“According to a pending lawsuit, 93-year-old Rebecca Zeni died in 2015 from a scabies infestation at Shepherd Hills Nursing Home. The autopsy report shows the cause of death as “septicemia due to crusted scabies.”
WJXX and WTLV indicate that State health officials had been notified about a scabies outbreak at the particular nursing home multiple times but did not inspect the facility. Forensic investigators believe that hundreds of millions of mites were living inside Zeni at the time of her death.
This type of incident is a devastatingly unfortunate example of the improper care that exists in the nursing home industry.
