The Case of Jesse, Unrepresented and Homeless

A 60-year-old homeless man, “Jesse”, is found confused
and in distress by a passerby who calls 911. Paramedics
bring the man to the hospital. Jesse’s feet and legs are
swollen and covered in ulcers and dead tissue—diagnosed
as osteomyelitis, or infection of his legs.
