Reed Questions State Nursing Home Probe, Blames Cuomo

first_img“Placing the blame squarely on the staff who care for our grandparents — when the state knowingly created COVID hotspots by forcing homes to accept COVID-positive patients — is a slap in the face to those who lost a loved one. Even a cursory review of ADMA’s dire warning to New York State makes it clear what really contributed to New York’s horrific death toll,” Reed said.In a response to Monday’s press conference, Stephen Hanse, the President of the NYS Health Facilities Association and the NYS Center for Assisted Living, said: “At the onset of the COVID-19 virus, nursing homes and assisted living facilities were not the top priority. The principal focus of policymakers was on bolstering hospital resources and ramping up hospital bed capacity. This strategy included the Department of Health’s March 25th Advisory… As we learn more about the COVID-19 virus every day, policymakers now know that the men and women residing in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are the most at risk to infection from the COVID-19 virus…”Several Republicans continue to call for an independent investigation into the coronavirus in nursing homes.

Andrew Cuomo to dodge responsibility for nursing home deaths, according to Rep. Tom Reed.Reed, who has been calling for an independent investigation into the deaths of thousands of New York nursing home residents, blasted Cuomo.“This is a blatant attempt by Governor Cuomo to sidestep an ounce of accountability,” Reed  said. “As we’ve said all along, an independent investigation is needed to fully evaluate the impact of New York’s disastrous nursing home policies. Justice is not served when the individuals who were responsible for the state’s deadly edicts are reviewing their own conduct.”The report found that more than 37,000 nursing home workers were infected with the Coronavirus between March to early June. That accounts to about one in four nursing home staff. “The correlation is between what happened between community-wide infection and staff infection were the more prevalent reasons why there were fatalities in nursing homes. But it was not because of a directive on March 25,” said Northwell Health CEO Michael Dowling. That order required nursing homes to re-admit COVID positive patients unless they could not provide adequate care.“The March 25 guidance was not the driving factor in nursing home deaths,” NYS Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said.However, Reed places theWNYNewsNow File Image.blame squarely on Cuomo and his administration.last_img read more

Missing March Madness 2020: Day 3 voting results of tourney bracket

Posted on

first_imgThe actual NCAA Tournament has been canceled, but Sporting News is still offering the chance to pick upsets and virtually watch your favorite teams advance, round-by-round to the Final Four.With the first round games in the books Thursday and Friday — a handful of double-digit seeds advanced — the first day of the second round took place on Saturday. I’m not saying it was dusty in here, but there was plenty of chalk. Breaking down the voting from Round 2, Day 3:MISSING MARCH MADNESS: Playing out full schedule, scores for 2020 NCAA TournamentMIDWEST REGIONNo. 1 Kansas vs. No. 8 HoustonYour vote: Kansas wins, 81.5 percent to 18.5 percentThoughts: There are teams in this field that could give Kansas fits, but Houston is not one of those teams. The Jayhawks are an elite defensive team inside the arc — opponents made just 42.4 percent of their 2-point attempts (third in the nation) — and Houston shot just 46.6 percent inside the arc, 291st in the nation. So the Cougars aren’t going to score inside, and Kansas’ length and athleticism would make it tough to score outside, too.No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 12 CincinnatiYour vote: Louisville wins, 65.0 to 35.0Thoughts: The Cardinals would be just too much, especially with Jordan Nwora back in the groove after a rough stretch (averaging 19 points and 11.5 rebounds the final two regular season games).No. 3 Michigan State vs. No. 6 West VirginiaYour vote: Michigan State wins, 54.8 to 45.2Thoughts: If any team could handle the pressure a Bob Huggins team brings in March, you would figure Michigan State — with senior Cassius Winston leading the way — would be the team to make that happen. Especially with how well the Spartans played down the stretch.No. 2 Creighton vs. No. 10 Utah StateYour vote: Creighton wins, 70.5 to 29.5Thoughts: Utah State was the only non-power school to advance as a double-digit seed, by your vote. But the ride ends here against a Creighton team that took the under-the-radar path to a No. 2 seed. The Bluejays are legit, though.MISSING MARCH MADNESS RECAPS:Day 1 | Day 2EAST REGIONNo. 1 Dayton vs. No. 9 RutgersYour vote: Dayton wins, 81.0 to 19.0Thoughts: That might have been the score, 81-19. OK, not really, but Dayton would have almost certainly cruised in this matchup. Shout out to Rutgers for a season in which the Scarlet Knights almost certainly were going to make the tournament, though.No. 4 Seton Hall vs. No. 5 Ohio StateYour vote: Seton Hall wins, 52.5 to 47.5Thoughts: Myles Powell had another 30-plus points and another run of clutch baskets down the stretch to help the Hall narrowly knock off tOSU.No. 3 Duke vs. No. 6 IowaYour vote: Duke wins, 57.6 to 42.4 Thoughts: Personally, I think Duke would have had all kinds of trouble with SN Player of the Year Luka Garza inside, but as long as the bigs stayed out of foul trouble and the perimeter guys knocked down perimeter shots — certainly possible, but far from certain this year — Duke could have made this happen. You agree.No. 2 Florida State vs. No. 10 MarquetteYour vote: Florida State wins, 77.6 to 22.4Thoughts: Markus Howard is a star, but Florida State’s defense was legit. Even if Howard got his points, the Seminoles would have shut down everyone else.last_img read more
