The NYS Legislature will be holding hearings to review New York State’s rate of infection and mortality due to COVID-19 in residential health care facilities on August 10. There will also be a hearing on hospital care during the pandemic on August 12. More information HERE
NY StateWide Senior Action Council will plan to testify and asks that you share your stories with us to be included in our testimony. Do you know someone who was in a nursing home or assisted living facility – how was their experience? Did family members have an avenue to get timely information? What was the impact of visitors and ombudsmen being shut out? If you could make changes to improve quality of care and communications, what ideas would you want us to convey? Email your story by August 5 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
