After Causing The Deaths Of Thousands Of People In Nursing Homes, Here’s What Cuomo’s Doing With COVID-19 Restrictions In These Facilities

(Tea Party 247) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo seems to be the kind of person who just simply refuses to learn from his own mistakes. Maybe part of that stems from the fact that he doesn’t actually take personal responsibility for his own screw-ups and seeks to shift the blame to someone, anyone, other than himself.

He’s certainly done a good job of that during the coronavirus pandemic, especially after poor decisions made concerning elderly folks living in nursing homes led to thousands upon thousands of deaths. Cuomo quickly passed the buck for this big oops on to President Trump.

Now it seems the Cuomo administration is relaxing the restrictions at nursing homes and allowing family members to enter the facilities for in-person visits with family and loved one for the first time since the pandemic kicked off in March.

Via NY Post:

The announcement Tuesday by state Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker comes just three days after relatives of nursing home residents held a rally outside the governor’s Manhattan office protesting the restrictive policy.

The new policy will resume limited visitation for facilities that have been without COVID-19 for at least 14 days — half the 28-day rule that has been in effect since early July.

Nursing home advocates and family members said the 28-day infection free policy was too restrictive, with only a small percentage of the 613 nursing homes meeting the criteria to allow visitors.

But Zucker said the updated guidance will allow visitation in approximately 500 of the state’s 613 nursing homes.

“We understand how trying it has been for New Yorkers to not see their loved ones and the challenges they’ve had to endure during this unprecedented pandemic,” Zucker said in a statement.

“The number of nursing homes that have taken the necessary steps to protect residents from the asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 while working to reopen to outside visitors, shows that adhering to the DOH visitation guideline is the smart and cautious approach to allowing visitations. We continue to be guided by science and concern for residents’ welfare and will monitor nursing homes that host visitors, to make sure this action does not lead to an increase in cases.”

Last week, the DOH also relaxed COVID-19 restrictions concerning visitations going from 28 days to 14 days at assisted living and adult care facilities. This particular policy will fully take effect on Thursday.

Part of the relaxed requirements will be for visitors to have a negative coronavirus test with the period of the previous seven days. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to enter the facility. Visitors to the nursing homes and adult care centers will also be prohibited from entering if they show any of the symptoms of COVID-19 or fail to pass screening questions.

The number of visitors to the nursing home must not exceed 10 percent of the resident population at any time and only two visitors will be allowed per resident at a given time.

Visitors must undergo temperature checks, wear face coverings and socially distance during the visit. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited.

Nursing Homes accepting visitors will be required to send their visitation plan to the health department and attest that they are following the rules.

More than 6,600 deaths at nursing homes and adult care facilities are linked to the coronavirus.

But critics say the death toll could be double that because state officials have refused to divulge how many nursing home residents died of COVID after being transported to hospitals for treatment.

Cuomo admitted that the coronavirus spread through nursing homes “like fire through dry grass.”

But his handling of nursing homes during the pandemic has arguably been his achilles heel. He came under fire for a March 25 health department order that required nursing homes to accept recovering coronavirus patients from hospitals — a policy that was later rescinded.

The Department of Justice is now looking into whether the policies enacted by Cuomo’s administration might have contributed to the rising coronavirus death count in nursing home facilities.

Cuomo definitely should be held accountable for his administration’s absolute failure to handle the coronavirus pandemic and causing the deaths of thousands of people. What that looks like is up for debate.

When he ordered people that were infected to be placed in nursing homes he knew quite well that it would be a death sentence for the rest of the residence !!!!! He didn’t care because his mother wasn’t in any of those nursing homes!!!! Flat out FACT HE HAS MURDERED MORE PEOPLE THAN ALL THE CEREAL KILLERS PUT TOGETHER !!!!!

    Be Very, Very, Very Careful For What and For Whom You Vote For in all City, State and National Elections !!!! Voting across party lines is legal and viable in any general election !! Please do Vote !!!

  14. Cuomo is a NARCISSIST and an A$$HOLE. This is the man that was telling everyone in his daily coronavirus briefings that “if you wait to prepare for the storm to hit it’s too late” NEW YORK WAS NOT PREPARED. And let’s not forget this one “To fight a battle you have to have stock piles to be in front of the battle” This is the man that knew in 2015 that New York was 16,000 ventilators short to handle a pandemic but chose to spend $750 MILLION NY TAXPAYER DOLLARS on a Solar Panel company that went bankrupt but not on the NEEDED VENTILATORS and let’s not forget the $90 MILLION NY TAXPAYER DOLLARS on a light bulb factory that went bankrupt but not on the NEEDED VENTILATORS. He f**cked up with the nursing homes and is trying to pass the blame onto President Trump. FACT that was ALL CUOMO. Lets face it cuomo is a TOTAL FAILURE.

  20. Herd immunity has set in. If you are in good health, and your NH resident is also healthy, then its time for visits to resume! This is now a mental health issue for residents, who have become withdrawn, scared, socially unstimulated and terribly missing family. Put yourself in forced 6 months isolation with little contact except for the overworked health care workers. Would you want to live if all seemed hopeless???? Have some compassion, not scorn.
