Pennsylvania Health Secretary, Rachel Levine, ordered all nursing homes and long-term care facilities to accept any coronavirus patients from hospitals. Remember New York did the same thing and it led to a disastrous outcome of death?
Levine then admitted, on Tuesday, that she moved her mother out of a personal care home in Pennsylvania after giving the orders for all nursing homes and long-term care facilities to take covid-19 patients.
“We are seeing community spread of this virus in most areas of Pennsylvania. And we need to make sure that our loved ones in nursing homes stay safe. And that is why actually I am not able to visit my mother, either,” Levine said on March 29.
There is a big problem here, though.
According to the Daily Caller, this was '11 days after she ordered nursing homes to admit all new covid patients'.
Governor Cuomo has already acknowledged that his move to force nursing homes to accept the coronavirus patients was a disaster and reversed the order.
So, why is Levine making the same 'mistake'? Removing her own mother from a Pennsylvania facility is a big tell that she knew the consequences.
Pennsylvania is also facing a class action lawsuit that claims the Dept. of Health stopped inspecting long-term care facilities where the virus has spread like wildfire.
This is beyond negligent. But who is going to stand up and do something about it? These people are destroying lives like we've never seen before and so far, they're largely unaccountable.
