How progressive care for the elderly
They let them die. What say ye elcheapo? Where is CNN/DNC on this? Still spreading the fake lysol story? Covering for scratch-n-sniff? Well can't be that cause they never spent any time on scratch-n-sniff. The old and women don't mean much to progressives.
Coronavirus patients at a Brooklyn nursing home were denied admission to both of the medical facilities established in New York to handle victims of the pandemic even though beds were mostly empty.
The New York Post obtained access to email from the CEO of the Cobble Hill Health Center to state officials seeking to relocate sick residents.
“We don’t have the ability to cohort right now based on staffing and we really want to protect our other patients,” Cobble Hill CEO Donny Tuchman wrote in the chain of the emails.
“He was denied,” the Post reported.
“I was told those facilities were only for hospitals” to send their overflow patients, Tuchman said in the Post report:
New York health officials were warned in writing that a Brooklyn nursing home where 55 patients have died of coronavirus was overwhelmed — weeks before it began topping the state’s official list of resident COVID-19 deaths, damning emails show.
Cobble Hill Health Center CEO Donny Tuchman sent a desperate email to state Health Department officials on April 9, asking if there was “a way for us to send our suspected covid patients” to the hospital built inside the Javits Convention Center or the US Naval hospital ship Comfort — the under-utilized federal medical facilities on Manhattan’s West Side.
At the time Tuchman sent his plea, only 134 of the 1,000 beds at the Javits Center were full and the Comfort — which had just been reconfigured to treat up to 500 COVID-19 patients — had a mere 62 on board.
The Post reported that when the article was published, Cobble Hill led the state in nursing home deaths.
