Our Michigan nursing home abuse lawyers recently came across a report done by the Michigan Protection & Advocacy Service (MPAS), an agency that advocates for the rights of people with disabilities, that two women were neglected at two different nursing homes. Both womens bodies were infested with maggots.

One woman was a resident at the Cambridge South Nursing Home in Beverly Hills. This nursing home is owned by SavoSenior Care of Howell. Maggots were found in her trachea and she is hospitalized due to the infestation. The other woman is a resident at the Whitehall Healthcare Center of Ann Arbor, owned by LaVie Management Services. Maggots were found in her catheter and she was rushed to the hospital for treatment. According to MPAS, both women survived. Both nursing homes were fined between $34,000 and $17,600 by the Department of Labor and Regulatory Affairs.
