Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases
"Nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covered 19 pandemic. That means in most cases, families can't sue. If someone they love got sick or died at one, the nursing home say they're doing the best best they they can, can, and and they they need need those those legal legal shields. shields. But But that that also also may may stop stop people people whose whose injuries injuries have have nothing nothing to to do do with with covert covert from from seeking seeking justice justice in in the the courts. courts. No. No. Well Well talked talked with NPR's Anna Jaffe, who's been looking into this Why were these laws passed in the first place? You remember that the Corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home, and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from Copan 19. Nursing homes for caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious the disease was, and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covert or did these immunity laws basically finished him off? Well, there is one in Durham, North Carolina. It's question whether it's related to cope. But possibly it's the first of its kind in involves the death of a woman named Palestine House. Her daughter, Lisa House set her mother's death had nothing to do with the coronavirus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bed sores. They're commonly known. She had it since December of 2018, and it just got worse and worse. It became infected. Lisa how was said she begged Trey Burke Rehabilitation Center to send her mother to the emergency room. But they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa House and her three sisters had their doubts. And their experience Traber and Rehabilitation Center didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. The federal government gives Traber in just one. It also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residents. The government has find Traber and almost $190,000 in the past three years. We were there a lot, and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her trade just sitting there. The House sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes in general. Traber and was the third one they tried, but it was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often, but that hardly mattered when families were locked out of nursing homes in March. Everything that harder and took longer Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and I V antibiotics. Lisa House had her mother's power of attorney Again. She begged trade burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find a specialist she needed again. She was turned down. Their excuses were Well, the hospital's not taking new patients because of cove it and she would be safer. She stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother. And none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine House died a tray burn Rehabilitation center on April 14th 2020. One month later, North Carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities, meaning the nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to March, 10th Lisa House and her sisters decided to sue Trey Burn anyway. Elizabeth the Todd is their attorney. Palestine House did not have to die in that way or at that time. And for the Legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic. Not the nursing home patients is outrageous and It's unjust North Carolina's immunity law less until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free pass to nursing homes with low staffing like Trey burn, and so literally, the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield. To prevent any liability at all. During the cove it pandemic through their attorneys. Trey Burn Rehabilitation Center declined comment, but for many in the long term care industry His immunity measures are welcome relief, says Day vocal CEO of the Arizona Health Care Association. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assistant looking facilities, legal immunity. And for that we applaud him because that just takes a little bit of pressure off vocal says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important. We need to worry about keeping Cove it out of the building. But sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says vocal Take, for instance, 100 Dead building and they really have 50 rooms, two beds per room. But to keep infection from spreading, those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis of existential proportions, says Mark Reagan, the attorney for the California Association of Health Facilities. That's because liability insurers are excluding all things Cove it when they renew policies, which would mean that any claims made Regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage. Congressional Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped it. It's part of the deal for the latest coronavirus relief package. Reagan still has hopes. What we're merely asking for is that caregivers and their employers don't get punished for doing the best that they could under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of Palestine House doesn't in fact, think the nursing home was doing the best I could for their mother. Well, right there. Attorney Elizabeth Todd points out that One of North Carolina's immunity criteria is that a facility must be acting in good faith, and she doesn't see how trade burn can argue that they did that. So where does this case stands now? Well, Elizabeth Todd is now waiting to see if the case will be dismissed because of the immunity law. Or if Lisa House and her sisters will get their day in court. MPR's Aina Jaffe aina, Thanks So much for your reporting. Thank you.

peaceful movement some members even organizing a community pool party on Friday I love this of course doctors say large gatherings like protest in the capital or foolish only increase the risk of deadly virus spreading really it's foolish doctors say let me pause right there for a second okay let me give you a story out of Oregon where if I still lived on Long Island I would say Oregon because that's that's just what they say okay story from Oregon more Oregonians died the past month that is typical in mid March and early April is according to data released by state health officials but fewer than half of the excess deaths were officially connected to the coronavirus wait what so they had a record number of deaths more than usual not record more than usual but less than half were actually connected to the virus that we're told is killing everybody how's this possible in all two hundred forty five more Oregonians died during the five weeks between March sixteenth and April nineteenth two hundred forty five more died then during the same five weeks in twenty seventeen twenty eighteen to twenty nineteen on average that's a lot of people right there an extra two to forty five during those five weeks seventy eight Oregonians died from the Chinese virus according to the state health authority official can now why does that happen why do you think that is two hundred forty five more over the five week period died compared to the past three years it's not for the Chinese virus it's because people are afraid to leave their home they're afraid to go to hospitals you're free to go to doctors offices they're not getting the check ups are not getting the treatments and they're dying yeah yeah doctors in this ABC fifteen story say it's terrible to go out and

there she was talking during the White House briefing yesterday as she is a member of the White House task force on corona virus ms vermin your time and many of our listeners have elderly parents my dad's on Medicare what is being done for Medicare recipients here in Arizona well I understand and and my parents and in laws on the Medicare program so interesting and the concern for Kerry care givers well people should know first of all that Medicare is providing coverage if somebody does get sacked cut you know in terms of copays and coinsurance testings covered treatments covered but one of the most important things we've done is powerhouse the president has directed us to make sure that our Medicare recipients can take advantage of broad based telehealth services so this way they can receive healthcare services from the safety of their homes and we're also waiting all the copays so even if they don't have corona virus or not showing any time types of that respiratory illnesses that could just be their normal medical issues they can get that Kerr from the safety of their home you know one of our top stories this morning is about how Arizona's running short on testing supplies so how do hospitals and I'm also hearing nursing homes skilled nursing homes long term care facilities they're really short on supplies how to get more one of the things that we did just last week with a call to action to local leaders we really do need to prioritize our nursing homes they are really athletic at the core of this in the recipient of the people that are living in nursing homes are particularly vulnerable there at very high risk and across the nation we seen outbreaks in nursing homes and so it's important that local leaders prioritize those nursing homes in terms of casting and in terms of supplies we're talking this morning good morning with Seema Verma who runs the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services at it as a member of the White House task force on corona virus you're in meetings with the president the vice president Dr found Jian and Berks and others what's it like in those meetings and how're as some of those tough decisions made is there a very robust discussion I don't wanna you know typified his fights but does everybody get to put their opinions out on the table good about making sure we hear from everybody I think the important thing to know is that we are making data driven decisions we start out every meeting with the discussion of what we're seeing in the data what we see is looking at you know every single community we're looking at where the virus is spreading on how communities are doing in terms of their social mitigation and you know the great news is we're actually seeing some signs and early signs of success with thirty days to slow the spread that those communities to really embrace of concepts are not seeing that type of rapid increase in the number of new cases hello who's of course a member of the administration economic adviser to the president says forty eight weeks to get us back to work here in the United States where where where do you put that well I I think that Larry is in the same meeting that I man we're all looking at the data and and and what I like about our strategy is that you have a public health strategy in terms of the social mitigation and making sure our health system is preparing supporting them as we need to but you also see a parallel strategy on the economic front we understand Americans are hurting a lot of them can't work a lot of businesses are shut down and that's why Leary and not Mnuchin secretary Mnuchin are doing a terrific job working with Congress to make sure that we get dollars so that people can put food on their table and pay the rent all right and then one more time real quickly if you don't mind for our listeners who either have elderly parents or are of an advanced age what what should they be doing if there are Medicare patients well the most important thing to remember is to follow those federal guidelines around thirty days to slow the spread it really is better if they can stay home and so for those care givers out there if you can go to the grocery store for that if you can run those errands for them and it's difficult people are at home and they need us to look in on them give them a call use Skype with them so I think everybody needs some support not only are elderly but really everybody but I think it's just important to help them adhere to those guidelines if they need medical care try tell help first all right thank you for your time this morning Seema Verma is a member of the White House task force on corona virus and the administrator of the centers for Medicare and Medicaid it is six
