To the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department:

I examined Rose Jenkins on March 11, 2014, when her daughter, Margery Adams, brought her to my office for an independent medical examination.

The patient is an 82-year-old Caucasian female with a history of Alzheimer's disease and is a resident at Yoknapatawpha Acres nursing home.

She is 5'1 and weighs 90 pounds. She appears to be suffering from malnutrition and dehydration. She has elongated nails, her hair is unwashed, and it does not appear as if she has been showered or sponge-bathed recently. She appears to have been living in a filthy environment.

Patient wears an adult diaper for incontinence, and it is apparent that patient's diapers have not been changed in a timely fashion for an extended period. After any incontinent episode, urine and feces must be cleaned up almost immediately and the patient should be washed to prevent skin burn.

Upon removal of the patient's diaper, large areas of reddened and irritated skin were noted on her buttocks and upper thighs. Closer examination of genital skin folds revealed signs of irritation and a yeast infection.

Margery Jenkins reported that flies and maggots were noted in a trash pail where soiled diapers and food waste are commingled.

Patient also had several bedsores (also called pressure sores or decubitus ulcers) on her back and heels. A large decubitus ulcer on her right heel was bleeding and had signs of fly larvae developing. This myiasis appeared to be in its initial stage as the larvae were quite small.

Preventing bedsores require time, effort, and adequate staffing. A bedridden patient must be repositioned every two hours to relieve pressure, more often if confined to a wheelchair. Proper nutrition is also necessary to prevent skin breakdown. If any one of these procedures is overlooked, the likelihood that a patient will develop bedsores increases. An early bedsore is a reversible reddening of the skin. However, it can rapidly lead to destruction of tissue if left untreated.

As a physician, I am required by Mississippi law to report elder abuse or suspected elder abuse. Since the patient is in an institution, this letter is directed to the local law enforcement agency.

Please contact me with any questions.

Yours truly,

//James Franklin, M.D.

  • The lack of care for Rose Jenkins is appalling! I can't believe that someone didn't turn him in long before this. Maybe he deserved to be laying out by that
