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.

NFL Stadium Near Phoenix Is Now A Mass Vaccination Site
"Katherine Davis. Young from our member station, Cage's and Arizona joins us now. Good morning. Hi there. You've been to the NFL stadium and you've seen the mass vaccination site. How does it work? Exactly? Well, it looks a lot like the huge Covad testing sites that we've seen for several months. Now around the country. There are big tents set up and the cars pull through. People stay in their cars, and they get the vaccine right through the window. Have to wait a while before they drive away to make sure they don't have any negative reaction after getting the vaccine, and we've got several big drive thru vaccine sites running in our state now, But this NFL stadium is the biggest one and it's the first one that's running 24 7. I was there bright and early yesterday morning, and there were hundreds of cars there and pretty constant traffic coming in off the freeway. All I can imagine there's a lot of logistics, toe opening and operating a mass vaccination site like this one. How prepared are Arizona's public health departments? What are the biggest obstacles? Well, experts I've spoken to have said Really. No Health department was totally prepared for this level of logistics because we've really never attempted a vaccination program on this scale before. It's not just a matter of directing traffic, But you have to find enough. Qualified staff who could administer a shot. You have to you have an appointment system that can help manage thousands of people to get signed up in Arizona. That's where one of the big setbacks has been so far, for example. County opened up appointments for people over 75 along with teachers and law enforcement on Monday of this week, So suddenly we had thousands more people trying to book appointments and the website crashed. So they were just so many logistical things that states and counties are having to consider. This is such a critical time. The CDC is saying that Arizona now has the highest infection rate in the country ahead of California. Give us an understanding of just how bad the situation is there right now. It's just worse than ever. We have record cases, record deaths, record ICU bed use and hospitals say they're close to the point where they're going to need to ration care. So the governor and the Health Department are really focused on these vaccine efforts and really want to accelerate that as much as possible, but will humble is the former director of the state's health department, he says. Even if we're vaccinating thousands of people a day Viruses so out of control. We really need other mitigation measures in place before Arizona gets to a safer level of spread. The government health director are just banking on vaccinating our way out of this, But in the meantime, there's just gonna be a lot of dead bodies because those are the people that became infected. And Arizona's governor, Doug Ducey has rejected calls by state officials for stricter measures. That's Cage's Katherine Davis. Young. Thank you so much. Thank you.

"Another look and intimate look at, one of our great and enduring national problems and challenges the problem of race and racism, a conservative columnist. Has written a wildly controversial piece about the challenges faced by interracial families, including his own we'll be speaking with David French a little bit later in the broadcast one of the things he talks about is that he is a an adoptive parent of a child who was adopted in a great act of of. Christian, kindness in Ethiopia that he and his family have. Faced all kinds of racist responses And no not just from the. Alt-right not just from the racist right but particularly from the progressive left that somehow thinks. It is wrong for white families to adopt? Children of color we will get to that issue on the Michael, Medved Show will also get to new polling that shows a shockingly strong and consistent rise in black support for President. Trump now this is very important, coming up to the election that we're going to be experiencing in November and if Republicans, all across the. Country can get anything like the twenty to thirty percent and sometimes even, above that that pulls her showing of black support people who approve of President Trump from the black community this would lock in Republican control of the house and increased Republican control of the Senate so what can be done in that regard We will, get? To that issue and I I we will also be done a little bit about the primaries that are coming. Up today they're big primaries in Florida in Oklahoma and particularly in Arizona with a very red hot Senate race which raises all sorts of possibilities of what governor Doug Ducey. Is, going to do about appointing a replacement to Senator John McCain and yes in the nation's capital. And actually I think it's a beautiful thing there is still some meditation some actual thought, some mindedness going on about John McCain and what his message was and what he stood for and who he was and. What we can learn from his example one eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six. I do think that it's worth thinking about What is it. About. McCain that has made the morning for him After his passing on Saturday at age eighty one so particularly poignant I mean if you think about other contemporary politicians it's hard to imagine somebody else who would occasion the same. Kind of, of of sadness, and universal respect or near universal, respect I mean maybe Bob. Dole he should live. And be well but it's not the same it's, not the same even though Bob Dole also ran for president seriously ran for president twice was vice presidential nominee in nineteen seventy six and was. Also war hero There's something different about McCain and of all of the speeches by in about McCain The one that that, affected me most, was just delivered on the Senate floor a few minutes ago literally and and we've we've got some excerpts of it to play for you because I think it's one of the important speeches in recent months about the state of American politics and who we, are and where we're going is delivered by John. McCain's, best, friend in the Senate and, maybe even arguably his best friend in life Lindsey Graham the Senator from South Carolina who's also been. A frequent guest on. This show, and Senator Graham was very deeply emotional about this. He's, deeply emotional. Everything I mean Lindsey can get emotional about a, corn beef sandwich really he can but, here he was emotional and, he, had obviously personally written out every word in advance which is unusual for Lindsey Graham In, the, speech was beautiful and important, and I think it's one of those Senate speeches that will actually be remembered he spoke for instance. About principle versus compromise. Listen you, told me that principle and compromise are not mutually. Exclusive, and the. Foundation of a great person as well as right, nation he taught me that immigration as, hard as it is to, solve Somebody's gotta do it. And he said to me with Ted Kennedy you're gonna learn Lindsay That the other side. Has to get something I, have learned that lesson to my friends on the other side as long as. I'm here I'm gonna remember that you have, to get something to Okay This idea of principle and, compromise particularly when applied to the subject of immigration may rub some people the wrong. Way But I think the important thing is what Senator Graham said at the beginning He said principal and compromise are. Not mutually exclusive in the foundation of a great nation or a great person In other words if you really do care about principle Then you want to advance that principle And that idea of the other side has, to get something to this is. Very very essence of a conservative worldview let me explain a conservative, worldview which is, based in most cases, not every case but in most cases in a belief in a God who was an infant. Creator is that the world isn't limited the idea that God is an infinite crater means that there is no limit. To the. Blessings that can be created facility facilitated this is not a question of of scrapping, against other animals on the Seren Getty You don't have to struggle over a few crumbs basically. Life is. A win win not a win-lose what cooperation means is that both sides can win Any good deal and business in relationships in politics If you make. A deal and it's good then both sides win I think that was probably true in the deal that was. Made yesterday by President Trump with. Mexico on trade it can be a win, win and this idea of a zero sum game it's the only way I can win is make sure, that the other side loses and gets wiped out and we're gonna stomp on their neck and we're gonna break, their arms and what the gal out there is and we're going. To knock out their teeth and. Then we win that's usually not a lasting victory No really it isn't you're getting ready. To fight again the next time Lindsey Graham. Went on about good, and evil he told. Me that good ignores evil it may be convenient but it, seldom works you. Talked, about? What would. Happen in Iraq if we left he was right He talked. About what would happen in Syria if we didn't get involved, he was right Why because warriors are the best athlete that making peace and the warrior understands the difference between a false peace, and real picks Profound important what else did he find and learn from John McCain those who've traveled with John You sell them head to? Mills in the same country You met more people than. You could remember but you were struck by, one thing we're going to really, bad places. A lot and those in the military adore that's man He taught me that boldness and practicality Must be practiced in equal measure Boldness and practicality not exclusive practiced in equal measure And what else this He taught me that honor and in? Perfection Are always in competition I do not cry for a perfect man I cry for a man who had honor. And always was willing to admit to imperfection If you're thinking about getting in politics The one thing I would ask you to, look at, when it comes to life John McCain that it's. Okay to tell people ask screwed up I got this wrong I wanna make it Honor. Is in my view Done the right. Thing at your own expense And he did that time and time and time again Lindsey Graham Senator from South Carolina speaking, on the, Senate, floor today about his, friend and mentor John. McCain one eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six there's more and. There are more lessons that today's conservatives need, to learn and there's also a column today that says it's a season of sorrow For followers of Ronald Reagan Really we will get to that and more on the Medved show.
