Jennifer Marie Delgado, 31, charged with injury to a child after a 6-year-old girl was found to be severely “malnourished” and “neglected” over a period of time.

According to an arrest affidavit, Delgado took the child to the hospital on Dec. 3 because the girl had been sick and her face was blue.

The affidavit stated the child has been diagnosed with sleep apnea, failure to thrive and fed through a gastrostomy tube.

Hospital staff told investigators the child smelled like urine and feces, was wearing dirty clothes and showed serious signs of neglect, according to the affidavit.

The child also had severe tooth decay, numerous bed sores, hair loss and arrived at the hospital weighing 19 pounds, the affidavit stated.

Hospital staff also told investigators Delgado had not taken the child to a clinic since August 2017.

Doctors determined the child’s condition was due to neglect over a period of months and Delgado was arrested two days later.

The relationship between Delgado and the child has not been disclosed.

It seems like the child was already medically fragile and she neglected to care for the child which led to the present hospitalization.

The last time the child was seen by medical professionals was in August 2017 so the neglect had definitely been over a prolonged period of time.

Too bad they can not recoup what ever financial assistance she received for this child because she sure did not use it for this little girl. She probably only brought the girl to the hospital to ensure that she or/the mother continued to receive those benefits.
