"Year sentence for each of those counts if he's convicted. Those charges involve endangering Taylor's neighbors from shots. Hankinson fired while in Taylor's apartment evidence released today shows another officer fired the shot that killed Taylor while they served a A warrant. Justice is not often easy. Does not fit the mold of public opinion, and it does not conform to shifting standards. It answers only to the facts into the law. This in mind. We must now ask ourselves. Where did we go? From here. So what does being accused of wanton endangerment actually mean? We asked for a federal judge and coming Moscow professor John Carroll to explain. The classic example is shooting into a crowd. Uh, so that kind of extreme indifference, your shooting, and you don't care what happens to anybody. That's what wanton endangerment it If he had hit anybody, it would have been solved and if you'd killed anybody would have been murdered. But this is a situation where nobody got hurt, so it's want in danger. Carol says in Alabama, the same offense would be called reckless Endangerment, which is a misdemeanor here in Alabama. One endangerment, though, is a felony in Kentucky. All right. Let's take a look at the corona virus cases in Alabama today, the state adding 464 Mohr confirmed infections the total now reaching over 147,000 with nearly 15,000 probable cases.

"There are many critics of administrator Verma inside the health Department. People who believe that she has operated without significant oversight from secretaries are and are unhappy that there was no punishment levied. So while the party line is that HHS supports Seema Verma. There are many officials who do not So there's a lot that's happened here a lot you've reported on. You know, the stakes here are clearly really high for the president in public perceptions of his handling of the pandemic would be expecting to see over the next two months. There are a few flash points. A few developments that We had politico reporters and other outlets are watching very closely, Dave. I think the most important is the development of a Corona virus vaccine. The land speed record for developing a working vaccine before this year was about four years for the development of the mumps vaccine. That record will almost certainly be smashed by the development of a current virus vaccine in the span of months or maybe a year. There are 9 10 vaccines that are nearing the potential for approval. The federal government is raying around the possibility of making some of these vaccines available the emergency authorization maybe just for health workers or people highest risk. But that could happen before the end of the year, quite possibly before the election and the idea that politics would influence that decision. Is something that is on the minds of noxious every reporter. But a lot of government officials to who want to be extremely careful that they're not rushing a vaccine. The market that could harm people or Undermine confidence in the public health response. I also think we're watching how the administration continues to communicate. We're not about Corona virus. The president on Monday night in a speech said that the virus quote affects virtually nobody. That's patently false. There are hundreds of thousands of Americans who have been sickened, hospitalized or killed by the virus. I I would bet that their families and friends would say that the virus has affected them, too. See nothing of the people afflicted by covert themselves. We were at a threshold of about 200,000 confirmed deaths from Cove in 19, and then hundreds of thousands of more people who have been hospitalized for the virus who may have developed symptoms that don't go away over the course of some weeks. There are people really suffering, and that issue has receded as the nation has gotten the nerd to the idea that Koven 19 is just his background noise as the presidential election assumes warm or Of the foreground.

The pandemic is putting electronic medical records to the test
"To slow the spread of the coronavirus testing is hugely important, not just getting a test but getting the results back as quickly as possible. A recent survey found that the average wait time for results is four days with ten percent of the people surveyed waiting ten days or more a shortage of the equipment and chemicals needed to perform the test is part of the problem but the country. Also lacks bust electric medical records system which would allow information to be shared seamlessly. We wondered how much is that slowing everything down Julia? Adler. Milstein is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco where her research focuses on electronic health records. I asked her if part of the problem is all the different software providers, companies like epic and Care Cloud and Athena health not. Playing nicely together I do think there's a roadblock there I mean that's really been an Achilles heel of the past decade where we've seen so much more digitisation of health information but not as much of an effort put on making sure that that information can move around seamlessly where it's needed and I think in an ideal world. Yes. Those large companies would have cooperated and figured out how You. Build their systems in a way that we're more compatible but we also didn't really create strong incentives for them to do that, and now we're working to try to correct that and I think covert has shown a really bright spotlight on the need to do that. But but it wasn't there from the start and I think we're really paying the price for that. Now What about privacy concerns? With information being shared more widely in more places I. Wonder if patients sort of opting out may be part of the the hurdle here. It is and I mean privacy concerns. You know go go hand in hand with greater ability to move and share information because you want to be sure that it does end up in the hands and not the wrong hands and that and that the patients are involved in that in the way that you know is appropriate until I think one of the issues that that is hard to know is sort of in what what level of of detail or granularity patient want to be involved in managing. You know who sees their information and for what purposes. into do that at scale is really hard because we know different people have different preferences over all and for specific types of information, as well as for whether it's a payoff for example, like what they might want to share with health insurer versus their doctor. So it gets very complex very quickly. So I think everyone agrees we should have the privacy protection, but actually implementing that privacy protection control is is where it gets pretty pretty complicated. I'm also wondering about the cost of all this I know the federal government has already spent tens of billions of dollars to encourage the adoption of electronic medical records. Do you have a sense of the price tag on what this effort could cost to get it? Right I don't think we've really seen good cost estimates because part of it is sort of what are we paying for I don't think at this point we're really paying for the infrastructure. This is really about linking up all of the digital entities and writing down rules of the road. I. Don't think anyone really has a sense of the Price Tag. You know my personal sense is that it would be lower than the investment that we've made so far because there's so much cost just the digitisation itself. But there's also some real costs in in in trying to figure out how to make all the different systems talk to each other, but potentially lots of savings to I imagine. Oh absolutely there have been some estimates of that and they've been in this sort of seventy to eighty billion dollars. A Year of potential savings if we really were to get to sort of fully standardize seamless information sharing a fact that hospitals are filling out spreadsheets with their covid testing data and sending it to the federal government, it's staggering to think that we're still doing that you know in the year twenty twenty. But then also to think about all the costs of all the people in those hospitals who are manually entering data into a spreadsheet, it's sort of hard to believe. Yeah, and if I never have to try to remember when my knee surgery was when I see a new doctor. It'll be too soon. How many of those health questionnaires if we all filled out again and again? Yeah. No. On the patient side exactly I mean, we haven't even addressed those costs and also just I think that the stress that we put on patients when it's clear that their doctor doesn't know their medical history and so if you were to show up today and you know tell your doctor that you've had cova test and then for that doctor to say, Oh, well, I don't have any way to access that information at his not delivering patient centered. CARE. Julia Adler Milstein is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco. And now for some related links, another wrinkle in all this, just because you're test results are in the system doesn't mean your doctor we'll see them right away. These are busy people with lots of patients counting on them. Adler Milstein says so far. The solution is just hanging doctors with lots of alerts, which if you've ever had to mute a group text chat, you know can create notification fatigue, and while most hospitals now have some kind of electronic health records system public health departments are still far behind relying on. Phones and even fax machines to share information. That's the subject of an episode of the health podcast trade-offs from my former marketplace colleague Dan. Guerrero tiene molly had him on this show awhile back Dan found that technology and data gaps key public health officials dangerously out of the loop, the fight, the spread of Corona virus. We have a link at marketplace tech DOT ORG along with results from a survey from the Pew. Charitable trusts found that most Americans support to improve how medical records are shared between providers but have since. Concerns about privacy and accuracy and respondents were generally less comfortable with the sharing of sensitive information like Substance Abuse Mental, Health Issues and homelessness factors that can influence health but also potentially how patients are treated I'm Amy Scott and that's marketplace tech.
Fresh update on "health department" discussed on Fresh Air
"Working for this government who do not want America to get better. Did you hear me? There are scientists who worked for this government who do not want America to get well until after Joe Biden is his president. The fact I knew it because I've heard it. And that is part of the Facebook video from Michael Caputo, the spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services. Now on leave. Our guest is Dan Diamond reporter for Politico who has written about efforts by Caputo, too. Revue and potentially edit reports from the CDC. Dan Diamond. What else should we know about what's on this video? It's pretty long. I think it's an unusual video. But at the same time, one of the only unusual things about it is that Mr Caputo was caught saying this into the camera. These are things that he believes he's said. Privately, he's continued to repeat them despite being on medical leave, and this is the distillation of what President Trump and the number of his key supporters in the government believe That the federal bureaucracy, particularly scientists at the CDC, On DH. Others across the health department are not doing everything they can, and then they're telling and their belief to help fight the pandemic and that they are trying to slow. The response because they have political concerns about the president again. My team at politico, we have found no evidence of this deliberate slowing, but I do think that the president and his team believe there At war with thes career officials often when the president has attacked the CDC or overruled career officials, the guidance has found its way into the public anyway, and leaks to the media. And that's why Mr Caputo and the president and others in that orbit. Believe that they're battling with their own health department. Even as Mr Caputo's publicly representing the health Department as its top spokesperson in the video, which goes on a while, does he also say that there's a That there could be armed insurrection after the election If Trump loses, he does say that day of the video hits on a number of things well beyond Mr Caputo's Rolls, Health Department spokesperson. He talks about the possibility Essentially a violent civil war after the election. He alleges that the clashes around the country the protests have happened in major cities with the group's he calls them. Hit squads that air training for future work, especially if there is a clash around the election again. No evidence to suggest this, But this Is part of the theory that has emerged on the right that the nation is girding for major conflict, and it's well beyond the work that he's done at the Health Department. So at some point in this controversy, you reported that Caputo had a meeting with staff at the Department of Health and Human Services to apologize what he apologize for. What did he say? That's that's right. So a few days after our report on Friday about the CDC meddling and a day or two after the Facebook live video, my colleagues Adam Canker and Sarah over Malone I reported That, Mr Caputo said. I'm sorry. This is not something that the Health Department spokesperson should say in public. This could hurt the Trump Administration's response to the vaccine development. I don't want to distract From all the good work that we're doing around the health department and also I may need to take medical leave. Few said that he was dealing with personal health issues that have cropped up that it caused him some stress. On DH that perhaps it was time to step away to deal with his health, which also coincided with the period of scrutiny that was coming now on his comments and on his actions. Right, And he does refer in the video to struggles with his physical health. And he says his mental health doesn't really explain much more. So he did the part under what circumstances? Mr. Caputo about a week ago took a 60 day medical leave. Now. That's notable for a few reasons. Dave First he's only been at the department for five months. So to be at the department for a handful of months event to leave for a handful of months. I can't think of anything quite like this before. Secondly, this means that Mr Caputo will be not at the Health department. Through the election. The medical evil end after the November 3rd election, and there's some question about whether he'll even returned. But there are a number of efforts that were underway that he helped launcher that he was playing a major role in Including the operational warp speed rush to develop a vaccine. That was one of Mr Caputo's pet projects. TTO handle the communications around that effort. He won't be around to work on that. And and I think That has changed the dynamic of the communications coming out of the whole department just in the past few days, and his scientific advisor Paul Alexander, is he still around? Paul Alexander left the health Department. The same day that Mr Caputo took medical leave. He was an odd fit. Paul Alexander is only champion really was Michael Caputo Know Caputo know Alexander Let me reintroduce you here. We're going to take a break. Dan Diamond covers health, politics and policy for politico. We will talk more after this short break. I'm Dave Davies, and this is fresh air..

"health department" Discussed on SuperTalk WTN 99.7
"The discussion involves the low number of Corona virus cases emerging from bars and restaurants and howto handle it. And most disturbingly, how to keep it from the public. On June 30th contact tracing was given a small view. Of Corona virus clusters, Construction and nursing homes were found to be causing problems with Mohr than 1000 cases trace to each category, But bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases. Leslie Waller from the Health Department asked, and this is in the emails. This isn't going to be publicly released right? Just info for Mayor's office. And then the senior advisor to the Mayor Benjamin Eagle's been says correct not for public consumption. So why would this not be for public consumption? Well, because you're going to find out. What they're shutting down is not where the problem is, and what they're not shutting down is where the problem is. Which makes you understand what's going on. This is entirely political it maybe in retribution. Who knows what the Mai I mean? This guy's so off the reservation here who knows what this guy's doing. A month later, the health Department Was asked point blank about the rumor that there are 80 cases traced the bars and restaurants. Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rows asked the figure you gave of more than 80. Does lead to a natural question. If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of covert 19 and David Davidson and only 80 or so are traces to restaurants and bars. Does that mean restaurants and bars are not a very big problem. Well, the Health Department official Brian Todd, as five Health department officials. Please advise how you recommend I respond and the name of the top Of the response is clipped off. But you find the the answer unacceptable. My two cents We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site. We could still release the total and then and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time, and we don't want to say a specific number. Well. Neither the Health Department nor the mayor's office would confirm the authenticity of the emails. But council member Steve Glover had a metro staff attorney inquire and by the way When Dennis fear your contact, then they said file a Freedom of Information Act request. Well, Glover. Had a Metro staff attorney require enquiring found out in an hour. What the deal was. They are really I was able to get verification from the mayor's office and the Department of Health and these e mails are really Lover says This is Metro national orchestrating a cover up. Glover says. They're fabricating fabricating information. They've blown their entire credibility. Then it's it's gone. I don't trust the thing they say going forward. Nothing. Lover says that he has been contacted by an endless stream of downtown bartenders, Waitresses restaurant owner's asking Why would officials not released these numbers? And Glover says we raise taxes 34%, but hundreds of literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments and we did it on bogus data. I'm telling you, this guy needs to resign. What in the hell is Cooper still doing? Mayor of Nashville? I don't understand it. I mean, this is obvious What is going on? This guy lied to everybody. He kept the information from the public about what the real story was and then closed down People's livelihood. Sze Again. Fox 17 News wasn't told by the mayor's office. This wasn't true. We were told to file a Freedom of Information Act request. Which allows us to now ask the question. Why are you keeping this from us? Why would you even want to? It's just the really numbers and what could possibly be? An honorable motive and there is no honorable motive. So today Dennis Miller and the mayor get into it. And so they're talking mother have a press conference about all the action's they're taking, and they want to ask questions and boy, they don't want to answer these questions. Mayor Cooper said that his administration was driven by public health information to areas of concern where gatherings of people could become super spreader events. He cited video shared in mid July, which showed crowd swarming lower Broadway, many of the patrons not wearing mask despite a city mandate, but he doesn't take any responsibility for inviting thousands of people to a riot. Which is where the spike obviously I told you the entire time. It is no coincidence. We have a riot downtown at the end of May and by the middle of June, we've got a spike in Corona virus cases in Davidson County, and they're going. Oh, it's because of the bars and restaurants so I want you to understand. What's going on here? Because I'm gonna try to put this assisting cle as possible and try to remain calm. The mayor caused a spike in Corona virus cases and Davidson County and tried to shift the blame to the bars and restaurants downtown and in turn. They closed a bunch of them down and is putting people out of business. That's what's going on. He caused this problem, And so instead of taking responsibility for inviting thousands of people to come downtown, he puts the blame on the bars and restaurants which, as we find out from the data now we're not the problem. He was the problem. Mass gatherings had increased Corona virus cases by over 6%. The bars and restaurants were a blip. So he was the problem. He blamed everybody else. And then you look at the real. The real outbreak was construction sites and nursing homes, and he did nothing. To stop the spread there..

"Nurses, across the country have been dying from covid nineteen due to their professions. Inherent dangers will discuss the strain. This has put on hospitals and the protections put in place to guard hospital staff at all levels with Christina Jewett senior correspondent for Kaiser Health. News thank you for coming on today. Thank you appreciate it in my conversations with various nurses in different capacities within the hospital system to a person female male cardiac care I see you every single one and I know this is anecdote Oh. But just for me, every single one is. Concerned about catching, Kovic Nineteen infecting relatives or? On the job is this fear nationwide from what you see far as I can tell it is coast-to-coast a problem I mean, I've been talking to nurses for months now and they have a number of concerned a lot of them have said they're not told who among their colleagues and patients has Koga a lot of hospitals are actually mixing. into sort of a general patient population and they're also being asked to reuse p. p. e., that six months ago they would have been written up or fired for reducing key in the way that they're required to right now. So there is like. When I talked to slow I know that there might be Hicfa concerns involved with not knowing which of someone's colleagues may have tested for covert nineteen but is there any way from where you sit where nurses are other medical professionals can be alerted if someone within their ward or someone on their floor might have tested positive. Contact tree thing I mean there's a nationwide push inside hospitals and health facilities also on the county health department level two alert people if they've been exposed and try to find out who's been in touch with so you're expect to go ahead and cost, but it's not you know you know form how it's being done on when and where it's being done. I've talked to nurses who had to really do their own leg words to find out you know sometimes they were told just sort of vaguely they were exposed to figure out what happened in which patient was it and how much contacting paycheck. So there's a wide range of consumer healthcare workers talking to. You made mention of. The and having to reuse it many times. Medical professionals have to reuse it. We're a good seven seven and a half months in this covid nineteen crisis here in America what policies or practices to your mind have been changed or improved to better protect nurses and other medical professionals. From what I've heard? Problems are improving a little bit. There are efforts to conserve PP and a lot of that involves disinfecting an ninety five respirator and I have heard concerns about that because there's a variety of ways that happened somewhat chemicals. Light and are sort of different benefits and drawbacks to those processes and I've talked to nurses who feel like they're sort of being experimented on in real time you. Try, this method and sort of see how it works and nurses who feel like they're gonNA stay healthy or not depending on processes. So the TV's attrition I think is getting better but I think the reuse uses still pretty widespread. When I began my conversation with you, we were talking more on a micro level in other words on a person to person level on a nurse to nurse level and their concerns on a macro level within the industry. Is there a shortage of just nursing staff or is it trending in that direction as it is more and more difficult to either find enough support staff or nurses to cover all the shifts given the increase in workload? Not Staffing companies have seen big UPTICKS and demand surges and sort of places and times when cases were really on the ride and I've also heard anecdotally that nurses are in some places leaving profession, and of course, they're dying you know as far as the national shortage I don't know if that's the case I haven't really heard that but I know there's Concern that there could be a second wave in the fall and that gives sort of hospitals and nursing homes all that more incentive to really sort of try to take care of their staff. He found the safe as they can't get him some rest. You talk about that second wave does this change fundamentally with the inclusion of the flu virus in this equation? Is a variable I assume we would have a larger need for hospital staff but does the flu present any particular challenge from where you sit you know the thing I've heard about the flu is that usually in the US at the time of the year through the Southern Hemisphere in the southern hemisphere from what I understand isn't seeing much through but I've heard. As far as the second wave in the follow the concerns that what colder climates everyone goes back indoors and sort of the concerned about the spread gets a lot more like cute when everyone sort of stuck together in a building versus out and about the in wide open air. So that's kind of what I've heard about the second wave but I'm probably not. The foremost expert on that topic?
Philadelphia residents follow mask guidelines, study says
"Finds that Philadelphians they're doing a pretty good job of wearing mass to prevent the spread of coded 19 K Y. W. City Hall Bureau chief Pat Lobe reports. The health commissioner thinks that's a big reason for recent progress on fighting the virus. Health Commissioner Tom Farley says new covert 19 infections fell to an average of 67 a day last week, the lowest number since the second week of the pandemic. Deaths have fallen to about one a day. He gives credit for this progress to people following advice on mask wearing if you're wearing a mask at all, Thank you very much. The new study shows more than three quarters of people on the city's commercial streets are masked. The study is separate from the Health Department's own research, but had similar findings. Doctor Farley says. One problem. The steady identified is that people don't wear masks correctly over the nose and mouth and consistently Don't pull your mask down to talk to the person next to you when you're talking to the person next to you is when you're most putting out the water droplets as the most important time to have a mask on vector for others is the kind of mask is important to Ben Dana's masks with vows and pulled up T shirts.

He is the internationally lauded head of infectious disease and global epidemiology at the UCSF School of Medicine. He is also UCSF's professor of pediatrics and adjunct.

Dr Authored although socially distance. Thanks so much for joining real pleasure. So Professor of epidemiology and biostatistics director at the prevention and Public Health Group. What do you do? Well, I'm an academic. So I teach school right I do research and I provide advice. So the mission of anybody in Academic Vinnie academic medical entity is education research, clinical care and public service. So my clinical care is really the clinical practice of public. Health and I advise the City Health Department San Francisco Department of Public Health, the California Department of Health and some of the various health departments around the state on approaches to controlling the Kobe deputy hammock. You did mention that your research is partly funded by CDC. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. Hell is a bit about that and how that affects your work during these crazy days. So I've worked with CDC for decades and most recently. I've been doing predominantly HIV related work in developing countries as part of the Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief I, have a large competent, very competent research group that basically tries to help governments and occasionally universities but mostly governments CDC missions in developing countries to understand what's going on with their. HIV. Epidemics, how things are working to evaluate progress and to discover new ways to try and stop the spread of HIV and try and. Improve. Clinical outcomes of people who already have HIV. So cases per one million population worldwide is running at about three thousand, five, hundred cases per one million in the US is running at about nineteen thousand, three hundred. So did we screw up or do we have a population that's more difficult to manage? Yes and yes, we have six fold higher numbers of cases than we should have and other countries like India may eventually catch up. I think that the US mister major opportunity early on and that was the problem with not having up tests and having the wrong tests and having tested didn't work and trying to control tests and trying to restrict out tests were being used for whom they are being used. I think they've always been you know a whole myriad lack of policy leadership which the states. have taken over and I think first of all the bay area in which the six county health departments acted in concert to move to a shelter in place ordinance early on on March. Sixteenth, and there is a very good reason for March sixteenth it was the day before Saint Patrick's Day, and then later the state moved in the same direction. So I think California's really been a leader in this. Now, you wouldn't know it from the last two months or three months since mid June under there's a huge wave of new infection a disappointed but I think we still are leaders in this. We showed data today in medicine grand rounds at UCSF that looked at numbers of deaths per hundred cases and in New York ten percent in. San. Francisco, it's zero point, seven percent. So it's less than one percent in San Francisco and the next best in a big city is something I one and a half percent did we screw up as a country? Totally? Did we screw up regionally in the north in northern California I don't think. So we scrub stay somewhat I think we made the reopening little to easy S. Really Hindsight Wealth speak that hindsight just for a second I mean in New York they've had four hundred, forty, five, thousand cases in thirty, three, thousand deaths. So they got a hold of this thing long before we did but we've already exceeded the case we're up to seven, hundred, fifty, thousand cases almost eighty percent more than they've had, and we've had fourteen thousand deaths. Half of what they've had when you say that we as a country may have screwed up, do we have a hold of this thing now and how much of it is that the population is not wearing masks enough especially young people who've decided that they're not as susceptible what New York was bad luck and they had continuous importation from Europe and may have had who? knows. Thousands of cases imported from Europe each one of which starts a new chain of transmission. We in San Francisco we probably at tens coming from Asia and you know the first death care was on February six dot and that was diagnosed retrospectively. Womanhood attended a convention in Las Vegas choose living in Santa, Clara County near San Jose and that convention probably people from China. or at least in the in the hotel that's probably where she got it. If she'd come home and hit a large crowd event at the wrong time with very high levels of virus inter nose and throat and spread it around we could have been just as bad office New York but we weren't and that's really a question of luck. So New York at Bath Block. But guess what we do. This was coming since the thirty first of December. That's when the UBA provincial CDC notified the central Chinese CDC that Oh, by the way, we may have a little problem here the central Chinese CD setup team to Wuhan on December thirty first basically started began an immediate investigation started closed down and drain the whole thing under control. That was the starting Bell I. Mean there was basically two months lost now CDC will say, well, we were having we we developed tests. We did this. We did that. Yeah, that's true. But then the FDA threatened to decertify their laboratory that was producing testing. They produce tests in the hundreds, not in the tens of thousands which was what was needed thousands. Of people came from Europe to New York and it got spread around helped by a couple of super spreader events where people in fact, at one person they affect hundreds of people at the same
Housing, Healthcare, and COVID-19
"Today, we're speaking with Barbara Dipietro. Who Directs the policy and advocacy activities for the national healthcare for the Homeless Council. Barbara, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Yeah it's so. I'm so glad you're you're you're with us today especially during covid nineteen where I feel like the healthcare and housing systems are really failing us and intersectional and kind of dangerous way. So we really wanted to focus on this today. But I could you tell us a little bit about yourself? How did you end up getting involved with this type of work and what do you do for your for your work? Thanks much I came to this work working for the state of. Maryland. In the Department of Health and did a public health policy for about ten years both of the governor's office and for the Department of Health I did interagency family and children's services and and was a staff to the. Agency. Council on Homelessness. I was the opportunity to write Maryland's first a ten year plan to end homelessness, and this was back when those ten year plans were really just getting going under the Bush administration and Interagency Councils to. A homeless policies within states were really becoming the thing to do and and so that was precisely the time when I was in public service and my eyes were opened at that point to the breadth of issues affiliated with Homelessness and just how preventable homelessness is if we could just get good public policies to address it. And that was obviously no more. Well, illustrated than health department and in healthcare, and so one the things that I, the partners that we worked with healthcare for the homeless out here in Maryland they introduced me to a network of healthcare for the homeless providers nationally, and that's where I was. Started working with the National Healthcare for the Homeless Council and came familiar with them, and then they had an opportunity for director of policy and I've been in this role for eleven years now. And really excited to be doing just so much more deeper work on healthcare on homelessness in good public policy. So just to start with. I feel like the image that people have of homelessness doesn't actually match the reality of who experiences homelessness, how people become homeless and what it really looks like to experience housing instability. Can You just define homelessness for our listeners and paint a picture to help us better understand what it really looks like sure. I know we tend to conjure in our mind a street homeless man who was a chronic. That is what most Americans think of when they think of as homelessness. Really that population is about ten percent of the total homeless population in the country. Overwhelmingly, what we are seeing our low income working families are working people If you look in shelters most shelters a third to a half of shelter. Shelter stays our children. When you look at it working families who when we think about. Earning eight nine or ten dollars an hour, ten dollars an hour is twenty dollars. Excuse me twenty thousand dollars a year at fulltime salary. That's still not enough to make rent and pay bills and meet your food needs and and and and so people even when they are working even if it's not minimum wage still maybe in the shelter because they can't afford housing. So the official definition of homelessness, it may not surprise your listeners to know that there are many federal different definitions of homelessness depending on the program you were looking to access and so the definition of homelessness if you were in a housing world is more narrow than in the healthcare world. and. So then it's different even for the schools. And so we're looking at obviously street homelessness but also people who were living in transitional housing programs, permanent housing programs, people who were doubled up with friends or family really unstable. There's just a really A. Many people do not just solely stay in one place so they may be staying in a shelter for few nights. They may bounce back onto the street they may be able to stay for a couple of nights with friends or family member. Maybe, a spare couch something like that. Many of our clients do work, and so they do have some income were there on disability and they have some income. So that income allows them to pay a hundred dollars for the for sleeping on a couch for a couple of weeks.

"Providers who might need support to stay in business and especially coming after the bumpy few weeks where Alex as our was in charge, I, I would argue I. I think Adam. Would you agree with us? That was probably the high moment for Seema Verma in terms. Terms of how the health industry viewed her that they saw her after years of fighting over things like Medicaid. This was a moment where Seema Verma was seen as really delivering things that they wanted yeah, I'd agree I agree, but I do think Jeremy. As the weeks and months have passed some of the same kinds of questions that centered on Seema Verma around. How is she funding? The providers who take care of low income patients Seema Verma's critic of Medicaid and throughout this corona virus crisis. Healthcare facilities that focus on Medicaid. Patients have complained that Verma and her team have not done a good job of supporting them that they've been at the back of the line for getting government handouts there continued to be questions to around how Verma has made decisions over nursing homes and other part of her portfolio, and just a few days ago Bob Barr, a former Republican congressman wrote a scathing piece in the daily caller, a conservative outlet where he said that Verma was the biggest problem with the. The trump administration's coronavirus response. I'm not sure I'd go there, but there is a constant effort with this administration to find scapegoats. Alexy's are has been often a big scapegoat. CDC and it's director Robert Redfield has been targeted a lot as a big problem during the coronavirus pandemic Seema. Verma has escaped a lot of that, but it's interesting to note that rising at the same time as a new inspector, general report comes out that raises questions about years of her decisions with these criticisms with this report. Where do you think that does leave Seema? Verma I mean let's say the president gets reelected. There's a second term of the trump administration. What happens to her? In the trump administration, you can never say die. There are officials who have had more than nine lives Seema Verma. When this investigation broke last year, there was some speculation that this could be a reason for her to leave the administration. She stayed on adamant. I and one of our former colleagues rushing a proton reported extensively at the end of twenty nineteen about Seema Verma's fight with as are, and how that expanded beyond these contracts. For instance she had made a controversial claim for stolen jewelry. There were some thought at the end of two thousand nineteen that Verma would be pushed out or resign under all the pressure that was months ago. She's still here so anyone who wants to preemptively. Preemptively right off a top trump official during the trump administration needs to look at the track record of trump officials who have survive controversy after controversy but I do think Seema Verma's path is cloudier than it was even a few days ago. I there are other contenders who might want to take over a senior role health department Deborah burks the white. House Corona Virus Coordinator has really seen her star rise, and she's someone who's talked about as potentially a second term HHS secretary under president trump, and now there is this report that will accompany Seema Verma if she has to go through another confirmation hearing and a report that really false her and her decisions, and how she spent taxpayer money. All right that's our show for this week I'm Dan Diamond and my thanks. My colleagues Adam Cancun Jeremy Siegel for joining me on this episode. Our producers are anti reese and.

"A year or more than a year ago, I mean right now we are in the middle of historic pandemic. You and I talk about this almost every week. Dan I'm wondering. Why should we care about this right now? When Corona virus is happening all around us well, I think Seema. Verma would argue that we shouldn't care about this right now. in her formal response to the Inspector General. Jeremy, which is included in the report, she attacks the timing and says it should not be coming during the pandemic. That's taking energy away from fighting the virus. She also says that the report mischaracterizes facts gets some details wrong. She has an extensive rebuttal, but this report to me and Adam I think matters for a few key reasons I. Entering the pandemic. What was the situation inside the government's health department and it was unsettled situation Seema Verma's. One of the two most important officials along with Health Secretary Alex. Who's nominally her boss? But the two of them pushed back and forth over who might be communicating messages to the American public who had influence within the white? House and the thinking from Alexy's ours people was that Seema Verma had retained this whole team of communications consultants because she was trying to elevate her profile and go around the health secretary in ways that were unprecedented and inappropriate I also. Also think that this helps explain some of the bad blood after politico's reporting, which first appeared in March of Twenty nineteen, so essentially almost a year and a half ago Seema Verma did not leave office she she survived the investigation, and there were significant battles behind the scenes between her and Alex as are some of their proxies over who would be steering the health department, so entering the. This year Vermes ours tough relationship absolutely contributed to a more fragmented response as Corona virus began to unfold. It was only after a few months of. Being in charge of the White House task force that he was replaced by Mike, Pence and Seema Verma, who is a close pence ally was brought on board in the beginning of March as a new member of the coronavirus task force I also think this report is helpful because it shows some of the dysfunction inside the trump administration. In a very clear and transparent way as journalists, we do our best in reporting out these stories, but sometimes it feels like we're. Groping, around a room in the dark, trying to put pieces of a puzzle together, this is coming from inside the house, though the lights are on, and this kind of report really shows what life is lake inside the trump administration's health department. And how even small issues can balloon into crises that shake the administration to Dan's point real quick i. mean this to me strikes me as a microcosm of how the trump administration has run for the past three and a half years, and by that I mean what really emerges here is you have a principal and Seema Verma who is comfortable and only wants essentially to. Keep decision making keep strategizing among a small group of trusted allies trusted confidants right. In lieu of a lot of the available career, government officials building that an agency that employs thousands of people, a lot of those who are held over from the prior administration, and I feel like we keep seeing this pop up again and again in that decision, making and strategizing is centralized among a small group of people, whether it's in cms or HHS, or in the White House and the tension there the decisions that are made in those small groups and then kind of broadcasted out the outer rings. Really kind of allows you to see how the decision making happens. How strategizing happens how we arrived at a philosophy in a way of running these massive agencies that is far different. Then I think we have seen in many of the most recent other administrations will Adam. Is this something that's still playing out in the middle of the coronavirus. Pandemic is Seema Verma. Doing a good job of helping lead the nations fight against the pandemic. Where are we seeing these same issues that played out last year playing out again during the pandemic. It's been interesting. You know early on. There was a lot of tension, and and frankly they're probably still. Is You know tension between HHS CMS, one of the kind of peculiarities. Is that while cms normally as part of? The health and Human Services Department has a trillion dollar budget. It oversees regulation for pretty much. The entire US healthcare system so in a lot of ways it kind of can operate and has the power to independent of HFS, so there are still those dynamics there are they as pronounced as they were last year and especially late last year no because there are. Are Honestly I think a lot bigger issues, and if you look at what's going on, hhs, a lot of that focus has been looking up toward the White House has been more dealing with the White House so some of these fights that were just kind of knock down drag out the end of last year. Have I think appropriately maybe paled in comparison to? The size of the challenge that we're facing now in the pandemic, and in just kind of everything that's happening every day, but there still is this kind of strategy of relying on small cluster of advisors of trying to figure out who can we trust? Who can we trust? That has kind driven a lot of the decision making throughout this whole period. Dan. How would you assess Verma's handling of the pandemic? So far? When Verma was first added to the White House, Task Force, she immediately made moves that the healthcare industry. was thrilled to see. She worked to expand the use of telehealth telemedicine, which during a pandemic that keeps us on our houses I think that was the right move and much appreciated. She worked to unveil loans and funding to hospitals, doctors.

"The trump administration's healthcare response. Today I'm in conversation with my colleagues. Adam Cancun on the political health team with me and Jeremy Siegel. Hosts are terrific. Daily dispatch podcast. We're looking at a new inspector. General report that confirms reporting that Adamant I did last year about controversy in the health department, and why it's relevant to today's fight against the pandemic. Here's our conversation. You guys ever feel like the health department is a soap opera with a really weird premise. What do you think the name for would be general hospital administrators. I mean we do have a main character in excess secretary? Alexy's are who did grow a mysterious beard did. What will his facial hair look like next season? After we're done with this reporting. Then read a screenplay and this'll be the this'll be the first rejected idea. Well to to get into some of that drama in the most recent season, right, guess the past season back in two two thousand nine hundred U2 both did a series of bombshell reports about a top health official. That's now very relevant today going back to Twenty Nineteen What did you uncover? And how did you uncover it would? Adam and I found across twenty nine hundred. was that a senior official name? Seema, Verma, who's in charge of Medicare Medicaid obamacare a one trillion dollar agency, one of the president's top health deputies was. Towards series of contracts run by Republican connected consultants and including when of Seema Verma's former deputies before going into government, those contracts were used to. Message Seema Verma's communications working on everything from our tweets to networking opportunities, and they ran a foul of what one would expect a top official to be using communications contracts for adamant. I came at the story in different ways, I. I had heard that the communications function at the federal. Health Department specifically and Seema, Verma's team had been largely outsourced to contractors which was unusual, and it became more and more unusual as the months. Months passed, but Adam got different tap, and in came at the story from a slightly different angle, but he kind of came out of a a casual conversation that I had one morning with a good source who every once in awhile would fill me in on things going on inside the trump administration's health department, and we were catching up in toward the tail end of the conversation. This person just kind of mentioned off hand. There had been some of this classic office drama over people getting left out of meetings, having their feelings hurt other meetings being commandeered by these kind of outside people who had come in these contractors who had essentially taken over a lot of the agencies communication strategy in particular strategy that dealt with Seema Verma and boosting her public profile in writing her speeches, that was kind of a just a random meeting and thing that kind of people interest I brought it back to Dan from there, I think we kind of took what we had both heard separately and combined it, and talking with the ranger people inside and outside the building were kind of able to piece together. This portrait of how Seema Verma was bringing in people from the outside, and then using them with taxpayer money to substitute them in as high level government officials so now today months later, the health department's Inspector General.
