Disastrous Directive From Andrew Cuomo Required Nursing Homes To Accept Patients With Coronavirus

New York has been hit harder by the Coronavirus than any other state.

One reason for this is the state’s population density, but decisions made by Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo are another reason.

In March, the Cuomo administration made the insane decision to require nursing homes to admit patients with Coronavirus.

Andrew Cuomo Under Fire for Directive Requiring Nursing Homes to Accept Coronavirus Patients

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing rising criticism over a controversial directive in March requiring the state’s nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients from hospitals, when few had the equipment or training to deal with those patients.

The directive, dated March 25, stated (original emphasis): “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

The New York Times reported Friday that “California, New Jersey and New York have made nursing homes accept Covid-19 patients from hospitals.” The Times added: “Although there is no evidence so far that the practice has allowed infections to spread in nursing homes, many residents and advocates fear that it is only a matter of time.”

The media has help up Cuomo as some sort of hero in this crisis. What will they say about this?

Things are going to look very different when the dust finally settles after this crisis.
