A patient's family filed suit against a senior care facility, Lutheran Home at 800 W. Oakton St., Arlington Heights, Illinois, after a gruesome incident in which Catherine McCann, 90, was found to have 57 maggots living inside her ear. Ms. McCann was being cared for by a nurse on September 16, 2012, when the nurse spotted a fly larva, or maggot, crawling out of Ms. McCann's ear. The patient was rushed to Northwest Community Hospital, where a doctor removed the insect larva as her daughter looked on. The family is suing the home for "failing to provide a reasonable standard of care." Lawyers for the home insist that this was a freak occurrence unrelated to the standard of care provided.
