Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The family of a 90-year-old Alzheimer's patient is suing a suburban nursing home, after they said dozens of maggots were found inside the patient's ear.

Catherine McCann's family filed a medical malpractice suit this week against The Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights. They said the nursing home on Oakton Street did not provide a reasonable standard of professional care.

The family said 57 maggots were found inside McCann's ear.

They're seeking at least $50,000 in damages.
