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.
Dr. Martin Luther King honored in New York City
"Honor honor the the message message and and spirit spirit of of the the Reverend Reverend Dr Dr Martin Martin Luther Luther King King Jr Jr on on the the Monday Monday closest closest to to his his birthday. birthday. Dr Dr King's King's fight fight for for Equality Equality and and Justice Justice for all continues today. This year. The pandemic forced the cancelations of gatherings for day of service events, but The National Action Network in Harlem. The mayor and governor were among those joining Reverend Al Sharpton for an annual celebration of King's legacy, Mayor de Blasio said. Those who don't believe in equality don't deserve to work for New York City. Let's be clear on this King Day. There's no room for any racist in public service. They need to be gone. That there is no room for any white supremist list in public service or in any uniforms anywhere in America. They need to be fired. Now around the country. King's words are especially resonant right now. Margaret Wong is the president of the Southern Poverty Law Center. And on this MLK Day she reflected on the uprising at the Capitol Less than two weeks ago, they pointed out that hate does not drive out hate. Only love can do that. And it can be very hard to hate. Those toe. Love those who hate you, but it is more important than ever that we understand what drives that hate. Also important to help the poor Martin Luther King led the fight. Against poverty and we need to restore that, and one adds the Biden administration is a start. But we have to commit ourselves to enabling their efforts to be felt and doing what we can in our communities to help one another. I'm surely antler. Wins

Sea-level rise from climate change could be worse than projected
"In presenting his climate team. Joe biden said it was specifically committed to facing climate change by delivering environmental justice. Talk more about that if you think about various recent events the hardest hit communities where the poorest communities you know sea level rise is an issue that really is threatening a number of low lying areas coastal areas and islands. Where you've got many indigenous people living in open alaska in the coast. There's a really odd thing happening. We're sea ice is disappearing and so first of all. It makes hunting of whales and other animals much more difficult but there are waves that are now breaking onto the shore where they're never waves before and it's literally like barreling into the digital towns along the shoreline so there's a lot of these effects certainly in the cities that's gotten a lot of attention to this year so if you're going to clean up sources of emissions than sources of pollution in general maybe start in the places where it's needed most and we're the people who live there need help to make these changes happen. Yeah i want to jump in and ask a question here about the pandemic as we understand it. Most scientists agree that this was a virus that was started by a bat that might have been driven by its environment because of changing climate is your sense that viruses pandemics are connected to climate change and we may see more because of that. So there's some really interesting linkages here deforestation. What you're doing in part is you're flushing out. Animals that normally live. There are happy to just stay there. So bats are carrier of lots of these kinds of pathogens and they're getting flushed out of their native habitat by us cutting down the forest essentially and that's a big factor within climate change to more of these slash and burn less trees. There are to absorb carbon dioxide in the more missions you create so as a source of potential pandemics we raise the stakes there and then completely on the other end of this in inner cities diesel fuel emissions carry small particles in. It's been shown they can actually carry virus particles a fair distance. Lot more than the six feet that we always hear about. So if you think about an inner city where diesel emissions are wafting into the apartments and all that and if there's corona virus around potentially carrying krona virus so all these things that are gonna connected in some pretty surprising ways. Well yeah you also want to remind listeners. That climate change isn't atmospheric only. We've got ocean. Temperatures in currency visited iceland a year ago and one of the country's biggest fisheries fish. They're catching that shifting. Just briefly what's your biggest concern about oceans end of twenty twenty. I think your story in. Iceland is a very good example of the oceans are maybe warming little but with a lot of glaciers melting ice sheets melting especially in greenland that area. There's more fresh water that enters the ocean so changes the level of salt so temperature changes a little salt level. Change a little the fisheries. They move you know they want to go where their conditions are prime for them and also where their food sources go which has a lot of implications for people who depend on local fisheries for their own substance. Well mark fischetti. Some would say this is a dispiriting conversation at a time of year. We're supposed to be filled with hope and love and at the very least have a spirit of faith. Do you have that that some of things you've talked about are going to be addressed or even turned around if you think about. What can we do. And in a number of these cases we can change the regulations. Make them tougher can stop the methane leaks. We can certainly improve environmental justice justice in general so there are definitely actions that we can take. You can be defeated about this but you know we all live here. So let's do something about it there. You go

Can We Trust God? (Habakkuk 1:2-4)
"From back chapter one versus two through four lord. How long shall cry for help. And will you not here or cry to you. Violence and you will not save. Why do you make me see iniquity. And why do you idly look at wrong. Destruction and violence or before me. Strife and contention arise so law is paralyzed injustice never goes forth for the wicked surround the righteous so just goes forth perverted. Oh this is startling language. In a sense the begins. The book of backing as aback comes before god. This is actually since one of the unique things about back. This is back. Expecting to god. On behalf of the people not speaking to the people on behalf of god at least at this point and a back is specifically coming to god with deep honest questions like hard questions that he's wrestling with as he sees pagan nations wicked evil nations having victory over the people of god and he's wondering. Why is this happening. I mean just think about his questions here. How long shall i cry for help. And you will not hear kreider violence and you will not save why do you make me see iniquity idly look at wrong like the whole picture. Here's a backing saying my god. Do you even hear my cries for help. Do you care. I'm grinding violence. Why won't you save back because living in the middle of evil and injustice and suffering and it seems like god is doing nothing about it survey sleaze questioning. It's one of the main questions. And the bud like god are you good. It's one of the deepest questions and live right. How can god be good. And there'd be so much evil in the world. Why am i seeing evil like this. Are you a holy god. Why do you only look at wrong. Says later in verse. Thirteen in this chapter. Your eyes are to purely on evil. You cannot look in at wrong. So how's it possible for you to be holy an evil like this to happen. Where is your power your love. Where's your word. Your law is paralyzed. Where's your justice. Justice never goes forth and basically at the bottom of all of these questions is god. Can i trust in you know. One of the things i love. Most about the book of a back is the way. It doesn't shy away from these questions. Instead it confronts these questions head on. And i i wish we can dive into the rest of the book at this moment but i i want to pray as we just consider her back chapter one alone right now and acknowledge. These are questions we russell with and these are questions we can come to god with her. Back is showing us. There's a way to humbly. Yeah exactly kaunda. God with our questions and so god i pray for people right now. I think about even some of the ways. I'm wrestling with some of these questions. When i think about my longing to go and adopt my son and day after day coming before you and asking you to make away in that way not being opened up and i i know i'm not alone in people listening to this right now. Who are praying for things asking for things and and seem sometimes like you. You're not hearing and it's it's pretty easy for us specially in our sinfulness and are just limited perspective to go from here not answering us in this way. Does this mean you don't care. And where's your goodness. And then we look injustice not just around the world but injustice that different ones were praying right now have experienced and we wonder got whereas your justice. Where is your power all of this. Where is your word. And so we bring these questions before you with humility before your god just acknowledging. We don't see all that you see. We don't know all that you know. We're not wise as you are wise and we confess your wisdom. We confess your goodness. That's what leads to these questions because we know you're good god. We know you're good. We know you're all powerful. We know you are just and we say we long to see your goodness your power your justice on display

"Come out with you know eight cones wherever maybe I could carry free each girl and This one particular day there was a A unique protests outside of the L. A. in Seoul and it was really getting heated. They were. They were chanting something angrily. How protests go. It's usually like Justice Justice Justice for the people. It's usually that cadence that rhythm that out and see Bella cab bothering me. Come on you know she. Has This high pitch voice and she would say like come on. I want my ice cream and give me a minute. I got a photograph. This thing and then In the behind me in the back of my year during the protests I hear a lot of an adult and a lot of Vanda allow them and so I said okay. You Win me over. I'll go get your ice cream now. My point is like the range of emotion with them between helping her reunite with her baby to having her tricked me into buying her ice cream and everything in between the spectrum of it was fast. You never knew what you were going to get but I was. I was starting to realize that I was getting much more from them than they were from me. They were brightening my life they were making my life more interesting and I was getting these. Also these brilliant photographs into their lives into the private lives. I mean you can't just walk up to a Romany person and snapped a photograph. I don't know what's going to happen but allow me to. Everything was was immeasurable that I could never. I could never quantify we see the remedy community in some ways live their lives in very publicly. They live on the streets there outside On a particular Madrid. You know in this sort of very busy touristy locations. It's interesting juxtaposition of them. They're very public but also the distance in DVD photographer. You could walk through Saul anytime any day and see them but then to make that kind of crossed paths one in that well in for them to be capturing and then sharing with you these incredibly intimate moments in their life. Incredible you can tell by looking at a photograph whether the subject knows the photographer or doesn't in other words if you were to look at photographs of your children or your spouse or your parents and you took the photograph. There's a relaxed calmness too with you. Just walk up to somebody. You don't know there's a wall up. There's there's a tense element of stress. I knew that my photographs of them were not going to be intimate unless they got to know me and I got to know that not just my name everything I mean. They've met my children. When I would have a difficult day at work I would take a walk outside the office walk to Seoul naked. See me visibly upset. And they would say hey. Is Everything Okay and go now my boss. He's being difficult and they were like. Oh don't worry about it so I would bounce them as much as they would bounce off of me. They had to get to know them. Vow would say comes across in your photography. They are incredibly intimate portraits. Really I would say I mean you can tell by the way that you've taken the photographs of just how close you have been able to get to them. Their shots that without knowing them would've impossible. I imagine absolutely I mean I guess. That's the kind of a segue to the question I wanted to ask you. Really what has been the favourite fighter that you've taken it than that through intimacy has allowed you to take that intimate photography of all the beautiful photographs. I was lucky enough to take over the past five years. There are several that. Stand out for example. The one of Bella. Sleeping on the street so peacefully There's one of another girl named served Who's looking off into the distance that everyone seems to like but my all time favorite is one. I've actually never displayed before. It's a shot of see Bella with me and the photo itself is not so of standing however it. It was the day that the hospital discharged her. After having the baby and in this photo you can see the pain on the face of a woman who has just given birth alone at twenty three years old. No father no mother. The husband wasn't even a loom with her In a foreign country in a foreign language then she was asked to leave the hospital without her newborn baby And she walked about three and a half kilometers on a cold April morning only to collapse in park after an emergency c section. Only to have the police tell her to keep walking and I found her that afternoon. And I love this photo so much because it was me telling her that I would do everything I could to get her baby back and you can just see the look on her face. She's she's been put through the wringer I mean the the look on her face is just. It's devastation unimaginable. Pain feeling one of my favorites. It's colorful intergraph the way the photos taken. I've kind of assuming that there are a couple things. Look like they're in the sixties and there's a guy in the background holding his walking stick and he's wearing a beret camp and in the foreground this woman with a head scarf wearing very colorful dress. I guess holding a cup with woking stakes smiling at the camera that is sort of smiling and looking down and it looks like this over element of like celebration in this thing. Looks like he's dancing. I can imagine there'd be music playing and he's dancing and if you know the fe to that I mean that photo is her name is Maria. A lot of the older woman named Maria. But she's interesting because she has a backwards knee. So if you've ever seen her in Madrid she's very easy to find because one of her knees goes backward like an ostrich and dimensions laughing at is Antonio. He's another one of my photographic subjects. He's a guy that dances and everybody loves to see an old man dancing it. He's hilarious. He's kind of a local celebrity. The interesting thing about Antonio is that he never remembers me. I'll walk up to one day. Say Antonio and he just points down to his little basket of money and he never remembers who I am. Yeah that's A. That's a great picture to two worlds colliding there too. I know that they don't like each other. Is there any kind of integration between the Romany community and another homeless people? There is a very frigid relationship. Between them I really three groups. There's two groups of Romany one is from city in Romania Medgidia. Then there's the group that I know more from codeine. They don't seem to like each other because they usually compete for the same spots too big in front of them. Recover this yell and things like that. And then there's the homeless community nine. I know them to be vastly different groups because we handed out. There's a there's a group of people that I helped me with this. There's a woman from Romania named Clementina. Who helped translate and she also helps kind of soften the distance between myself and the girls because being that the girls are female and the male the needs to be some distance. You know I don't try to put my arms around them in photos and things like that most time if they do it. It's okay but with Clementina there. This much more intimacy. They and they love to speak to another woman especially in Romanian. And there's another Taga for that. I work with named Antonio Antonio. Brazil is another brilliant photographer. We sort of worked together in our Rome project. We handed out blankets and these Christmas packages together throb. Madrid during Christmas to the homeless and when we handed them out to the homeless for example the Spanish homeless. There was it a big sense of. Oh my God thank you. Merry Christmas. God bless you. You know you guys are doing a good thing right. Yeah but then when we got to the Roman and handed there's out it was quite the opposite. It was why only one blanket why not to A. He got more than his blankets bigger than mine. It's a it's a thing that I laugh at about a glad you you call it that. Because I don't see that as a negative thing their culture dictates that they have to keep negotiating so if they ask you for a euro and you give them a Euro. They go all right. How about two? They were very aggressive With the blankets. So I noticed the difference with Antonio Maria in that photo. It was a rare moment because Antonio strongly dislikes the Romany and the Romany tend to resent the Spanish homeless for being local for speaking the language or having the ability to speak to the people that are begging from in that photo. You see a rare moment where Marie is enjoying Antonio Dancing Antonio's sort of dancing for Maria and I was lucky enough to catch it and you captured about minimum passionately. Yeah and I'm just the guy pressing a button you know I just you right place right time. You just try to increase your chances of being at that place the right time.

"That's wrong you've given this term to the public the public are going to use it and frankly if the public use it in a way slightly different or even significantly different from how lawyers intend bad luck on the lawyers at some stage you've got to be able to accommodate both understandings that would you do expect the legal round to be somewhat removed from popular sentiments unlike the media will politics i mean what happens when okay it's one thing if they understand it in important to promote that understanding but what if like all sorts of popular sentiments start effecting the legal processes well you then your question is mildly tendentious suggesting that the public should be able to rule the law and as you will know lighting for somewhere in my book a natural maybe elsewhere i dennis sherri how to that view because the law is the same to the people the people who served with the law now if i can come back to the other example before i returned to genocide the other example is warcrimes banded art as a term whenever it suits p one way or the other and what is a war crime mean well or warcrime overdue this is an oversimplification is capable of comprehension by application of the term that appears any in i international beneath red cross documents in terms of proportionality and said that that the order republican on the sounds almost patronizing of the ordinary public the nonspecialist public can have some concept of a conflict that has this on lax proportionality the of a response that lacks proportionality so it's not actually in impossible for reasonably compaq's or very complex legal concepts to have a sufficient understanding in the general reasonably educated public to estimate that little valid and the problem with genocide is that it has always been one step too complicated i think for general use.

"Inherently reductionist how do you meet that challenge none which was announced your crush promodes appointed hangs very important matt is the law must be understood by the people it serves if it's too have valued presence and a valuable future and again tested by references to your own domestic law in any country okay the people may not know the intricacies of law about importexport guarantees all the libel right or whatever else it is in the city of london but they have a very straightforward understanding of murder and burglary and speeding offences and also sorts things like that and that's when the law works at its best it's constituency understands what it is and and it all fits together if the international law is so complex is not to be understandable ben it's all uber you going to be by that very factor the author its own downfall all limited future in you take two really important examples genocide was provided to the public by lawyers and politicians arguably very cynical reasons not lemke and he was terrific who create the word and create and force through the genocide convention but the background of political cynicism on the part of the americans and probably the brits as well that led to the need to create the concept of genocide is is perhaps rather deplorable but that for whatever reason laws and politicians gave the public the concept of genocide which is extremely hard to understand in the legal sent in the legal says this but i am prolong enough i thought that really means you shouldn't use it as an offence and you shouldn't charging none of thought.

"Generally that reality is avoided by these criminal processes the only way you can bring a state to book fall war crimes is at the international court of justice state state civil cases under the genocide convention and trial people who are states that have tried to use that have so far had very unhappy limited success substantial failure because you mentioned the eichmann trial and i think also because hannah arendt does sort of hang over your book in a way i mean she's raise various point let's go to her observations of iceman i mean she observed him so closely and famously concluded that he represented the banality of evil you came face to face with milosevic and from this sort of intimate observation you mentioned his business suits and his intelligence but always put to the service of himself and you also point out that you don't think he had any particular hard political ideology other than power does he represent to you assorted banality of evil in our and sense i'm not sure whether i would go so far as to borrow half is to apply have phrase and i've never done set an incidental i didn't i know i understand that there isn't any i never use any of the other phrases such as the one by reach roped a program butcher of the balkans because i actually think that labelling although attractive unuseful for some purposes he's on helpful in all those nine never allowed labels to be used about milosevic in my team or in the office i wouldn't respond if labels we use he was either the defendant or he was milosevic does their new terms by which he could be referred to and that maintains a measure of objectivity i hope in the work you do earned stopped you're getting carried away emotionally nevertheless to pick up on your question on trimbe use hannah irons labeling he serrano uscis rehire analysis as he certainly represented some extraordinary banality yes he did but i think your listeners.

"Individuals will say okay whatever was happening to make us look like our neighbours mole we will send noses a a background of a justice system doesn't co first part of your question but i think you want to ask me something else you say in the book that international calls are seemingly similar to national courts here that the north can map out the difference for us well certainly yes it's a topic that is interested me for a long time national courts festival water readily understand by the constituency that they serve and the constituency makes the laws it applies the role through its politicians and its lawyers and if it's an offender it receives the brunt of the law and if it's a victim it may receive some compensation so it's a completely formed system of justice serving whichever particular country it is now international war crimes trials do very little by way of these things they may and this is i think the only way in which their true these similar they may serve a retribution a general rick tribute to purpose in that they may as i have just suggested have warlords around the world being a bit cautious about going into conflict but they do none of the other things that national jurisdiction trials really do and that i think is what distinguishes them so let me just think about that a little bit more the purpose of a national criminal trial most countries is retribution deterrents and rehabilitation of the offender well deterrents yes i'd i hope i said deterrence no retribution deterrence is the arguably single common factor retribution sending somebody to jail for however many as for eight thousand deaths is is not retribution control and rehabilitation walker.
