Every day you hear horrendous stories that break your heart and strike you like thunder. You might have heard stories that you never want to believe.
But these stories show the ugly and horrifying face of the world.
This is the face that usually gets hidden from the ordinary people. But the truth never hides and finds its way when the time comes.
The same happened with the Shepherd Hills Nursing Home.
They were trying to hide the truth, which later got exposed after a few years of Rebecca Zeni’s death.
In this article, you will read a surprising, rather shocking account of the inhumane nursing department and how Rebecca Zeni died.
Rebecca Zeni’s Death
93-years-old Rebecca Zeni died in 2015 from a deadly disease called septicemia. She suffered from this disease because of crusted scabies.
The story of her death is more painful than you can imagine. Rebecca’s family filed a case against the Shepherd Hills Nursing home in Georgia.
They believed that the nursing home didn’t give Zeni any treatment even when they knew she was suffering from this deadly condition.
As the investigation proceeded, many ugly and horrific details came to light related to Rebecca Zeni’s death, which will jolt your nerve.
What Is Scabies?
Scabies is a painful disease caused by parasitic mites. These mites get into the skin and lay eggs, and make patients’ bodies their own home. Fortunately, the condition is curable and has treatments.
Moreover, in most cases, the disease is minor and only takes a few days to resolve completely. It also doesn’t have lasting effects on your body.
Surprisingly, scabies is the third most common skin disease in elders and even in children.
However, if you don’t treat it timely, it can cause severe damage to your body.
Also, you can develop crust of flaky skin on your body. Unfortunately, this crust caused extensive and horrific damage in Zeni’s case.
