"More about nursing homes which like hospitals have been battered by the Omaha surge every two Hi Elsa Hi So you know I remember how badly nursing homes were hit early on during the pandemic Can you just tell us how are they faring today So we'll just last week there were 32,000 infections among residents slightly lower than the huge peak reached last winter But the good news here Elsa is that the debts are only about a tenth of what they were last winter So vaccines are really helping But the staff though is a whole different story I spoke with Mark Parkinson He leads the trade group that represents for profit nursing homes and assisted living Unfortunately we are now at an all time high in terms of staff cases in the last week There were over 50,000 cases of staff that reported positive from COVID And many of those people died last week alone almost 17 nursing home workers died which is close to the record number of staff that's in the very first summer of the pandemic Wow wait Why is the death rate so high among nursing home workers Well it really comes down to lower vaccination rates compared to residents And that's why the Supreme Court ruling upholding a national vaccine mandate in healthcare workers is going to be crucial because nursing home staff were much slower to get vaccinated than residents They've caught up somewhat but they're still a huge gap when it comes to boosters only a third of workers are boosted Mark Parkinson from the industry group says vaccine hesitancy is a big problem You get into the rural areas You get into the more red states like my home state of Kansas And you just run into that same vaccine hesitancy that you see in the general population A lot of misunderstanding confusion people that have been misled by false claims on the Internet So while the Supreme Court was considering the mandate many nursing homes did put in place their own vaccine mandates but many others didn't Well I mean with so many workers getting sick and dying I can imagine that that has really had an impact on care for residents at these nursing homes Yeah it's worse than an already bad situation more than 200,000 people have quit their jobs at long-term care facilities since the start of the pandemic because of the burnout and many of these jobs pay very little And these days you can make more money doing something else Laurie brewer is the long-term care ombudsman in the state of New Jersey She says this is affecting care We are certainly seeing a huge increase in the number of calls from residents who are saying that they are not being changed They're not receiving their meals on time And many facilities have shut down many are not accepting new patients which in turn affects hospitals because now they can't discharge the patients who need to go into long-term care Here's doctor David Kim at Providence which has hospitals along the West Coast It starts backing up all along the chain and then you start seeing it come out with long wait times in the ER patients in hallways leading for rooms because they're not ready to go home but they can't get a bed And the ripple effects are everywhere really because now there's more pressure on families who have now have to take care of elderly loved ones because they can be placed in long-term care That is NPR's retool Chatterjee Thank you too Thank you Now let's head to London where Prince Andrew has given up all public duties as well as his military titles and royal charities according to Buckingham Palace The palace also says the queen's second son will defend himself as a private citizen against a civil suit alleging sexual assault The prince faces what could be hugely damaging civil trial in New York and for more we turn to imperial London correspondent Frank Frank explain why the prince is giving up these honors now Yeah Ari I think Buckingham Palace is trying to distance itself as much as possible From Prince Andrew And he's become totally toxic certainly here in the United Kingdom As we reported the prince faces the civil suit by a woman named Virginia she says she was forced to have sex with the prince when she was 17 He's repeatedly denied this Buckingham Palace is making the move now I think because yesterday a judge in federal court in New York dismissed Andrew's motion to dismiss the lawsuit and this means the case could have to trial in the fall and they'll be even more damaging to Andrew and of course the royal family There was also mounting outside pressure There was this letter from more than a 150 Royal Navy RAF and army veterans They wrote the queen and they asked her to strip the prince of 8 military appointments So honestly honestly I don't think she really had much choice here You say the prince is totally toxic in the UK How is this news playing out there Very badly As that letter suggests the allegations from they've been around for years but after the arrest and death of Jeffrey Epstein who was the prince's friend and also convicted sex offender these allegations basically got new life and got a lot more attention and back in I think it was 2019 the BBC did an interview with the prince and he tried to put this all to rest And it was widely seen as a really disastrous interview And this is the prince speaking at the time with the BBC's Emily made list Is there any way you could have had sex with that young woman or any young woman trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein in any of his residences No and without putting too fine a point on it If you're a man it is a positive act to have sex with somebody And so therefore it's very difficult to try and forget positive action And I do not remember anything Well Frank looking ahead to this trial do people think the prince might actually end up defending himself in person in a U.S. courtroom I think people have a hard time imagining that Ari but selling the case may take more than just money Geoffrey's lawyers named David boys very well known in the United States Of course this is what he said to the BBC last night I think it's very important to Virginia defray that this matter be resolved in a way that vindicates her and vindicates the other victims I think the concern they're probably from the palace is that they may want some kind of statement in addition to any settlement from the prince and that may well of course have spooked them because it wouldn't be easy to dispose of this He's 9th in line to the throne Does this present a threat to the democracy To the monarchy rather No I mean on its own no worry I mean but as you know you lived here You covered this story the royal family has a tricky relationship with the British public They need to set a good example do charitable works and in exchange for that the public supports the monarchy and the UK won't become a republic under that support But this has been a really difficult time We've seen Harry and Meghan the duchess of leave the royal family amid charges of racism which the royal family is denied The queen is 95 not in great health and she has her she's gonna be celebrating her platinum jubilee this year It's a record setting 70 years on the throne It's pretty clear why the palace wouldn't want Andrew scandal hanging over.

They possibly can live for as long as they can possibly live.

What role will nursing homes play in the landscape of long-term care sure.

Biden Admin Withholds Millions of Aid for Hospitals Treating COVID Patients
"Hospitals bulge again with Covid 19 patients. A wide swath of the health care industry is exasperated that federal health officials have not made available anymore of the aid. Since Joe Biden took office Now $44 billion from a provider relief fund, created last year remains unspent, along with 8.5 billion Congress allotted in March for the medical care in rural areas. Right. That's over $50 billion With the coronavirus Delta variant fueling 1/4 pandemic surge, they write healthcare institutions, lobbyists and lawmakers. Have ratcheted up complaints to senior Biden administration health officials, imploring them to decide how the money will be divided and when it will be distributed. Is this not amazing? All the people going on and on about how the federal government knows everything. Fauci, the CDC, the FDA, National Institutes of Health, HHS, They're sitting on the money. And other than Amy Goldstein. I haven't seen this anywhere else. There's just no good reason for the administration to be sitting on these funds, and Mark Parkinson president, chief executive The American Healthcare Association, a trade group that represents nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Many running short on money, he said, because the virus is heavy concentration of long term care centers early in the pandemic, a stop causing potential patients and residents to stay away. Parkinson said he has had four conversations for Since February. The agency and the Department of Health and Human Services. It is in charge of the money. And one last month with senior aides to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. Each conversation we came up with the feeling would be that month, Parkinson said. And we've been wrong.

The last week of December was the deadliest yet for people in nursing homes with more than 6400 deaths. More than a third of all covert 19 deaths are now linked to long term care Corona virus. Vaccines are reaching more and more facilities, but many worry they won't come soon enough. To stave off a lot more deaths Will stone reports Terry Robertson had no interest in waiting till the second week of January to start vaccinating the residents and staff of the long term care community he runs north of Seattle. We got notice from CVS January 9 was our first date. Not that that doesn't work. So Robertson switch to another pharmacy. One that was able to bring the first doses to Josephine. Caring community much sooner. Just a few days after Christmas, you know, I just catch me and my dreaming is the nightmare over. I'm just like, Wow, this thing could really be over. In the late fall. The Corona virus was rampant in this northwest corner of Washington state. Eventually it got a foothold and Josephine residents just had so many sex positive and we're doing everything we can. By early December, more than 170 people had been infected. Some died. And it's the same story in nursing homes and assisted living communities in dozens of states. Unfortunately, even though we've been at this for so many months, not that much has changed. That's tomorrow Cadets ska professor who studies long term care at the University of Chicago, She says the research is clear. Even the best run nursing homes are not impervious to outbreaks. When there's a reservoir of disease in surrounding city or town all along. It's just been delusional that we could have these areas with high community spread and somehow protect long term care residents. It just doesn't work Staff come and go. Some work at multiple places and residents move in and out to the vaccine is a key turning point. But Connecticut says it's not a magic bullet. I think it'll dramatically reduce the number of deaths that we see. But will it eliminate the problem? Not yet there will need to be multiple rounds of vaccination to deal with the churn of staff and residents. In Pennsylvania and many states. At least half of all covert deaths are linked to long term care. Zach Shamberg leads an industry group in the state, He says nursing homes, which have struggled to get Peopie remained desperate since day one of the pandemic We have fought for one thing, and that's prioritization. And it's no different now than it was 10 or 11 months ago. Some of Samberg's members aren't scheduled to get the vaccine until late January, or even early February. Elaine Ryan with AARP says there just hasn't been enough transparency about nursing home outbreaks and now vaccines. It is an American tragedy. It's a national disaster. It's not that we don't know how there is a lack of accountability. Some states, including West Virginia in Connecticut, are doing well with vaccinating. So, says Mark Parkinson, with the American Health Care Association. Every week that the vaccine is delayed in long term care facilities will mean at least an additional 4 to 6000 deaths. So there's just no excuse for any governor not making this an incredible priority, but so far he thinks the U. S. Is on track to meet the goal of getting every facility. It's second dose by March.

"Nursing homes have borne the brunt of the corona virus pandemic in this country and some of the saddest scenes have been of seniors passing away with their families unable to be alongside them joining us now mark Parkinson the head of the nation's largest associations of nursing homes and long term care facilities this Parkinson a New York times study found that one third more than a third of all the gas in this country from Colbert nineteen have been in nursing homes and long term care facilities obviously the elderly are especially vulnerable population incidently this wasn't just patience this was also some of the workers at that nursing homes but why it beyond that vulnerability why do you think such a high percentage of all the doubts have been in these facilities well Chris you're right this is been a horrible tragedy and for those of us to take care of older people our entire life it's been almost unspeakable what we've learned from looking around the world is that any place where people live closely together whether it's convents war dormitories or cruise ships are nursing homes they're particularly vulnerable it's because of one very unique feature to this virus and that is that this virus unlike any other that we fought before a person can catch it show no symptoms and yet still spread it so in January February March when when we didn't know that we had visitors coming into our buildings we had staff members in our buildings closely interacting with residents as they need to to take care of them and we were unwittingly spreading the virus within the communities once the academic community and doctors figured out that you could be a symptomatic and carry it it was too late for a lot of people and unfortunately even then we didn't have the test to figure out who had it the good news that I can get this one were now in recovery there Chris I just want to point out that that the trump administration just on Friday allocated five billion dollars secretaries or deputy Sir secretary Hargan that's going to allow us to recover and really make this better I want to point out another issue however the government accountability office issued a report this week I want to put the numbers up on the screen it found that eighty two percent of nursing homes over thirteen thousand had been cited for infection control issues from twenty thirteen to twenty seventeen so the question Mr Parkinson didn't your facilities have a problem in this particular area long before the pandemic cath well we have a real flawed survey system and one of the flaws of the survey system is the surveyors are encouraged to give deficiencies and what that does is it creates the impression that even very good buildings are not good it makes it hard for consumers to figure out what buildings are good and which aren't when everybody gets deficiencies that same GAO report reported that ninety nine percent of those deficiencies were not severe they did not affect patient safety and many of them were just paperwork issues the reality is that the coronavirus violates all of the normal concepts of infection control because normal infection control is symptom related now that we know that we are adjusting our behavior and that is why we're starting to see recovery in people actually getting better visitors are no longer allowed to come into buildings in every interaction patients and and staff now have mask on Asians residents are not eating together in the same room they're eating privately in their own rooms so that now that we understand the very vicious nature of this virus were able to control it much better nursing homes in New York and New Jersey have been especially hard hit by the pandemic as well as the entire states and in late March governor Cuomo issued an order that nursing homes must accept Colbert nineteen patients to try to alleviate and prevent overcrowding at hospitals here's how the governor describe dad explained it this way the CDC guidance at a nursing home cannot discriminate against covert patients because at that time the issue was hospital capacity right remember hospital capacity and we were dramatically increasing hospital capacity did it governor Cuomo will have to follow that CDC guidance or did he have a choice and what about other governors and how they handle the CDC guidance around the country well like I I've been a governor in the time of the crisis so I understand sometimes you have to make decisions based on incomplete information at that time that governor Cuomo made that decision he was being told by the epidemiologist at his hospitals were going to be overrun with COPD patients in hindsight we now though that was not the case that was actually cut the capacity there they didn't need to be discharged to nursing homes in hindsight it was an error into governor Cuomo's credit he has now reversed that policy fortunately we were able to convince most of the other governors across the country tonight institute that policy and I think that's part of the reason for starting to see recovery but in fact he did have a choice he didn't have to follow the CDC guidance anyway yeah I mean in hindsight you know our suggestion to him at the time was that he don't didn't do that I think in hindsight he would say that it was for it was a an error it was an error again based upon incomplete and inaccurate information the country was too concerned with hospitals being over run and there were consequences to that one of the consequences is that nursing homes were left out our residents were not a high priority for testing we weren't given the equipment that we needed no there needs to be some accountability for all of these people that were making these fantastic estimates that the entire hospital system across the country was gonna be over run it wasn't and there are consequences that unfortunately we're seeing how residents were one of the consequences I want to pick up on the first point you made which is that we didn't know at the very beginning a lot of the particularly terrifying and dangerous aspects of the corona virus and one of them is that people could be a symptomatic and and go into a hospital without any sign that real and then still spread the virus to these very sick people all of that with the result as you've locked down is we've seen these terrible scenes where for their own good residents are kept away from their families and some of them get very sick some of them passed away and their families can't be with them when that happens what are your thoughts about re opening nursing homes leading families be with the residents and under what structures under what restrictions so that the families can be together but you're not endangering the lives of of all the patients inside these facilities yeah we we realize how hard it's been for family members and for residents to not be able to be getting together and you know we try to offer face time and all sorts of other alternatives but there is just no alternative to being together and then the tragic scenes of people dying without their loved ones it's just it's it's horrible the most important thing is that we need to keep cobra down in the communities of the nursing homes are in if you're in a nursing home within a community that has very little code but there's not that huge risk of it getting into the buildings if we spike back up in covert cases though we're gonna end up with more covert a nursing home so issue one is let's keep coping down in the communities issue two S. let's get adequate testing so that we can get a test of every staff member every president and then ideally if we can get on site testing throughout the summer so that when people come in they get a test we know that their code free that would be the ideal but we do recognize it's extremely important to get these folks back with their families this Parkinson thank you thanks for taking time out to talk with us this weekend and good luck in your efforts to reopen these nursing home Sir thank you very much up next we'll bring in.

"From my apartment to the attendant building in the seventh floor office of Mark Parkinson Vice President and general manager it was a room I well remembered with its Blang Walnut paneling and deep leather chairs. I've worked on a lot of cases with more and with a late Ed Morgan tool and it sounded now as though Ed my good friend from a long time back about to become a case himself clean Jenny will up a chair. Thanks it was quite a phone call. It's quite a situation yeah again at that. Just can't talk sitting down old habit. I just I remember when we used to be on the Johnstone building for we built this new one. We had those old-fashioned standup desks. It was an old man Clement was still alive. NBC Four. I was yes I keep forgetting about you. Newcomers meaning everybody WHO's coming into the game within the last forty years. I suppose I am one of the original settlers I m set in my ways to yeah what about hated to see those disco you can stand in front of them. Lean an elbow on them. Make out a report or speed. You're trying too hard to avoid avoid what it didn't call me over here just to reminisce about the old days in a way maybe I did. It is funny. Ah I always thought you liked it Morgan but I did and why did you say it's too bad. He didn't die a year sooner because I liked him like is too weak a word actually I thought as much as I would have my own son of I'd had one. I'm the one who hired him in the first place. Remember Johnny Remember I I took a personal interest in his career watched him work his way up to finally he was born too cheap adjusted for the West Coast head of our San Francisco Claims Office. Let was done good for a man as young because he was and I was proud of yeah I know I know you were it was a hard worker honest dependable and he had a good sound future ahead of him and then just like accidents. I usually just like that foggy night shop curb. He drove his car off a cliff in the Pacific Ocean and that was that tragedy the only apparently wasn't the end wouldn't have called me over here. No it wasn't Johnny. I wish it had been meaning. You'd better brace yourself within two weeks. After ed Morgan's death. We started getting complaints from some of our clients. At what do you mean complaints old. All demands for adjustment on claims editor reported paid weeks before requests for pass through settlements more and I don't get it neither did I so I sent a company coming out to San Francisco on acuity and put him to work on the claims files and we found out you found out what Ed's accounts had been doctored for some time what Johnny in the months before he was killed he'd embezzled nearly eight hundred thousand dollars Ed Morgan at margin and I don't believe it he did it might as well accept the fact anybody else yes anybody else but not in for one thing. Money didn't mean that that much I know we were always joshing him about living like an old hermit instead of a young bachelor cooler then why would he do it still eighty thousand dollars after all these years of being honest. What would he want? That would cost that much money. That's exactly what I wish. You'd find out how at a second mortgage second this is one. I don't want any part of either way but I'm afraid I'm stuck with it and you are doing away. Why because ED was your friend? Here's a flight ticket reservation to San Francisco plane leaves into our. I'd rather pass it so what I would. We can't neither of us. There's too many questions left and they've got to be answered by me. Eight thousand dollars of the accompanies money is missing. I just write it off and forget it. It has to be accounted for there are other investigators more and another thing that's just as important to me at least to find out why he did it. It's a failure and human dynamics man like Ed man. Everybody respected and trusted knee goes wrong. Why get somebody else to find out? I'd be pretty grateful of you Johnny Marr. I just don't want any part ain't know how you feel. It's quite a shock to find out he was a crook. It's like somebody pulling the rug out from under go so you WanNa forget all about him. Leave him safely dead and buried dead more but not buried if you remember they recovered the car but not his body. It's still somewhere beneath sickle all right. Look at it from an efficiency standpoint. If nothing else do any other investigator at Morgan would be just a name an unknown quantity but you knew him. I thought I did regardless of what he did Johnny. I just hate to think of a stranger point into his past. Maybe I still think back to the old times in the old country when the family buried their own and sometimes johnny a friend has to go all the way even when the other person is goofed. Isn't that what the younger generation closet. I'm not the younger generation more right now. I'm older than Confucius. I sure appreciate Johnny after all. Somebody's got have to do it yeah. Somebody's gotTa do it and like you said it was my friend.

You understand they were together. Constantly and Mister barone or there wasn't any when I recently deceased the dead when early this year's I recall I didn't know of course missile moved in here shortly after his death not until in an Ed Morgan wanted him over in about six weeks later or he met her here. No no they were already acquainted. Well acquainted I in fact I believe that that Mr Morgan and a young and very lovely widow at the time of husband's death matter of settling the estate or something of that sort of figure exactly why I thought so but I I do recall having an impression at the time that he moved in here only because of her and as I say they were together constantly right in the first. It's all very interesting. I I wonder if I can have a talk with Mrs. Barry will be utterly impossible. I'm afraid I'll look if you think I mean she isn't here isn't here. She's been gone for ten days now. What you go aw I really haven't the slightest idea Mr she moved down to you must've left a forwarding address or some? She didn't move out.
