CUOMO’S NURSING HOME MANAGEMENT UNDER SCRUTINY

A growing number of lawmakers in Albany…. including more and more Democratic lawmakers… are taking a closer look at the Cuomo administration’s procedures and protocols for managing the nursing home industry’s COVID-19 crisis. Now, a formal public hearing is being planned. Some 6,300 residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities have died from COVID-19 since early March. Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to give his administration high marks for its response to the crisis.
However, a growing number of lawmakers… including more and more Democrats too… are now questioning the protocols used by the state Health Department… which is under Cuomo’s control… in dealing with the virus.
