Cuomo defends policy of sending COVID-19 patients to nursing homes

New York Gov. Cuomo doubled down on his state’s now-scrapped nursing home policy. Cuomo was responding to a question around a report by AP that over 4,500 recovering COVID-19 patients were sent to New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes under a controversial state directive. ’New York followed the president’s agencies’ guidance’, Cuomo said pointing to the CMS and CDC.

So, Cuomo will follow Federal guidelines for pandemics, but not immigration?

Yes they claim everything, does he have guidelines in writing? Or is that all just BS. Or did he just "hear" it?

Except the executive order said IF you send infected elderly back to nursing homes, you have to set up a massive quarantine section for them... Which you didn't do.

When should a nursing home accept a resident who was diagnosed with COVID-19 from a hospital? A nursing home can accept a resident diagnosed with COVID-19 and still under Transmission-Based Precautions for COVID-19 as long as the facility can follow CDC guidance for Transmission-Based Precautions. If a nursing home cannot, it must wait until these precautions are discontinued. CDC has released Interim Guidance for Discontinuing Transmission-Based Precautions or In-Home Isolation for Persons with Laboratory-confirmed COVID-19. Information on the duration of infectivity is limited, and the interim guidance has been developed with available information from similar coronaviruses. CDC states that decisions to discontinue Transmission-based Precautions in hospitals will be made on a case-by-case basis in consultation with clinicians, infection prevention and control specialists, and public health officials. Discontinuation will be based on multiple factors (see current CDC guidance for further details).

"should" ≠ "shall". This is a pathetic blame shift. It's also obvious that the left, and their lawyers would be been suing the crap out of retirement homes if they refused to allow a senior to return from the hospital for COVID-19 under some BS "civil rights" claim.

Socialists can’t think for themselves, fail to make the big calls and on the rare occasion they do make decisions these are usually clouded in idealistic fairy land logic that, when it unwinds, causes disasterous consequences they try to blame on others.

They actually did say to do that if they were beginning to overwhelm your hospitals, BUT..... NY wasn't getting their hospitals overwhelmed. They were sending the Navy ship off relatively unused and taking down temporary hospitals because they weren't getting enough patients. And they were shutting down their own hospitals due to lack of patients. HORRIBLE DECISION, and his fault!

Here is applicable advise. I says they "can" accept not that they should be forced to accept and only if safe which clearly it was not. He can't use this as an excuse. When should a nursing home accept a resident who was diagnosed with COVID-19 from a hospital? A nursing home can accept a resident diagnosed with COVID-19 and still under Transmission- Based Precautions for COVID-19 as long as the facility can follow CDC guidance for Transmission-Based Precautions.

Paul, Are you to lazy to actually read the article. Oh, btw, this was in Detroit and had nothing to do with Cuomo! Someone is really trying to spin the bullshit. I'm starting to think you're actually a Russian.
