Families Struggle to Acquire Information About Loved Ones in Nursing Homes
NEW YORK- Wnyt.com writes that New York nursing homes have reported 2,477 fatalities from the coronavirus. The numbers continue to climb as the virus impacts the vulnerable population. The homes continue to have positive test results in residents and staff members, while the families who have loved ones in these facilities struggle to get information.*
Nursing homes are required to inform families when the virus is identified in a facility. Homes that neglect to report confirmed cases of COVID-19 can face penalties.
The Teresian House in Albany reported to families that a member of the home’s staff contracted the virus. Now families are worried about whether their loved ones in the home will be exposed to the coronavirus.
The COVID-19 guidelines for nursing homes state that the facilities are not able to deny admission or re-admission to residents with the virus, or those suspected to have the virus. One worried family member expressed serious concern over the prospect of allowing infected people into these homes where so many health-compromised individuals live.
