abuse and neglect in nursing homes.

I am going to post some GRAPHIC pictures of a WWII Veteran's feet who currently reside in a VETERAN'S NURSING HOME in KINSTON, NORTH CAROLINA. The Veteran has an active family member who travels to visit on a weekly basis and if this can happen to a Veteran who has family coming and going I can NOT imagine what happens to those who do not. Said family member is moving up the chain of command. This is ABSOLUTELY SHAMEFUL!   wish we could post pictures here...  both feet were very infected and had a massive ulcer.  DMAS should be doing everything in its power to keep people out of these places.  EVV puts people in these places.  praying for those stuck in them without anyone caring for them now that visitors are banned over this virus.
