Bathroom shower door frame

I am doing a small bathroom remodel on a new house I bought (First time homeowner). The door to the shower is kind of odd. It was framed in kind of funny so there is a big step into the shower. I am redoing the floors and trim and while tearing all of it up noticed some moldy and rotten sheet rock below the trim on that door. I have some pictures attached. I'm wondering how hard it would be and what type of door I could possible use to replace the existing door on this shower entrance. Any tips or help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Have never seen a shower set up like this other than at a seasonal cottage my folks had when I was younger. Nothing looks right. From wood trim, to wood plank floor under something that is probably mopped on to a drain body that doesn't look correct. Only thing I see correct is that the floor actually slopes. If it was me, I would be tearing this out and starting over. If nothing else, start saving up for a new shower install.

Just needs a wall to wall curtain rod on the inside of the shower, mounted low enough that the curtain touches the floor.

Can't believe it's got a wood jamb.

Thanks for the replies. Going to be saving up to gut the shower and install a new one correctly. For now I am just going to leave it as is and finish the rest of the bathroom. Since i never use the shower I am now going to worry about it.
