"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.

"Our age ranges from twenty two hundred five. We had a twenty six year old and a one hundred and four year old woman. Living here it is where people are going to live the best. They possibly can live for as long as they can possibly live. And there are a lot of challenges with that because you're dealing with different decades of each off and i think that's what i'd like people to take away from this and i yes i believe. We all need to work together to make the necessary changes so that people like myself can live a very full life in this type of setting and richard very briefly. As baby boomers age. What role will nursing homes play in the landscape of long-term care sure. I mean i think there will always be a place for nursing homes because we have a population of people are living longer with ana mrs with dementia. We need to have a safe and humane and appropriate place for people to get care in a residential setting. And i think as mark said i think we can make it happen. We know how to make it happen in many ways and we're learning more in terms of appropriate care for for residents with dementia. It's really a matter of making sure.

"And providing humane services to their residents during the pandemic. But the problem fundamentally is that there's so little enforcement in this country of those rules that too. Many providers will skip on them. And let's bring one more voice to the conversation joining us. Now is mark parkinson. He's the president and ceo of the american healthcare association. It represents long-term in post acute care providers. He's also the former democratic governor of kansas mark. Welcome to the program. Thanks jen great to be here now. Markets we've discussed some of the challenges facing nursing homes existed in many facilities before the pandemic. I'm like low pay inadequate staffing levels to your view. To what extent could some of this devastation have been prevented if those issues have been addressed earlier. All i think you're right. The panelists have been correct that kobe really did underscore this systemic problems in nursing homes. And you know. I think it's difficult improbably. A mistake to have a broad brush on the sector as a whole they're certainly outstanding buildings out there that are for profit and not for profit and although there are the individual stories of people told are really regrettable when you look at the overall picture of the data indicates that on a whole bunch of indicators facilities have been getting gradually better over the years. They're still a long way to go. And i think the reason. There's a long way to go in large part because of staffing and the underpaid of staffing and when you really dive into that problem it exposes the basic problem which is the chronic underfunding of medicaid. There are super nice facilities out there. Rich people can live in some of them before prophets of a denver not for profit but the poor people that run out of their funds liban medicaid facilities. So the bad stories that you hear on the criticism of the year from folks are typically in the states that have made the deliberate policy decision under-funding nursing homes genetic idea lucky to jump in their trip and say i completely agree with him I have seen in the thirteen years. I've lived here how staffing has chain. But it's because the wages have not are people here that the nurses especially the cna's they make sometimes less than what a student just starting. A job at mcdonalds makes flipping hamburgers. And i think that's ludicrous. Because it's like apples to oranges flipping burgers for someone and then physically caring dressing clothing bathing and feeding someone should be regarded so much higher. We'll be back with our discussion on nursing homes and long term care after the break. A reminder that you can join future conversations just download our.

Now first of all you would think those people who keep attacking other people for their views on vaccines and mass or whatever it is would be very concerned about this right but most of them are not begins. Tens of billions of dollars designated by congress to help hospitals nursing homes and other healthcare providers stave off financial hardship and the corona virus pandemic are sitting unused because the by administration has not released the money. What they're for people dying. Gee that's getting old. It's the pattern here as many hospitals bulge again with kobe. Nineteen patients a wide. Swath of the healthcare industry is exasperated that federal health officials have not made available anymore. The aid since joe biden took office about forty four billion dollars from a provider relief fund created last year remains unspent along with eight point. Five billion congress allotted in march for the medical care in rural areas. All right that's over. Fifty billion dollars with corona virus delta variant fueling a fourth 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. This is not amazing. All the people going on and on about how the federal government knows everything foul chief 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 be sitting. On these funds said mark parkinson president and chief executive who the american healthcare association a trade group represents nursing homes and assisted living facilities many running short on money. He said because the viruses heavy concentration a long-term care centers early in the pandemic is still causing potential patients and residents to stay away. Parkinson said he has had four conversations for since february with the agency and the department of health and human services that is in charge of the money and one last month with senior aides to. Hhs secretary exhibitor. The sarah each conversation we came away. The feeling would be that month. Parkinson said and we've been wrong. The aid bottleneck is inconsistent one of the first comments or commitments biden main when he took office in january the day after he's sworn any said he signed an executive order to make it easier for americans to get treatment if infected with a novel corona virus saying administration shall promptly provide targeted surge assistance to critical care and long-term facilities all right. But he's not so biden now can be said to be responsible and part for the death of senior citizens in nursing homes and long care facilities.

Many funds were approved by by earlier by trump and the prior congress and no matter how these people lobbying pressed to get the money. They can't get the money they can't get the money they'd rather talk about masks. They can't variety. Are you listening to me. Salani listening to little pukes. Federal health officials declined to discuss reasons for the delay. But hhs said in a statement. We continue to work expeditiously to get these funds out the door and we'll be announcing another distribution of funds soon. Plans are being finalized. Sounds to me the same people who planned the so-called evacuation mr producer or obviously involved in spending the money to help nursing homes long-term facilities repeatedly on capitol hill about the provider fund and his most recent testimony in june he said during the trump administration. There wasn't enough transparency in the process. How the money was allotted. These people are sick. We're trying to provide that transparency. Make sure we direct the money where it's needed. How long can they keep using. Trump secretary did not address the money could be redirected or when it might be released and pandemic relief laws. I created the fund. Last year said the money should be used up compensate healthcare institutions and practitioners for extra expenses loss of revenue attributed to the corona virus. The laws do not specify how quickly the money must be spent and they went trillions. More ladies and gentlemen trillions more about one fourth of one hundred seventy eight billion provide relief fund remains according to march and july reports by the government accountability office which urge. Hhs to tell congress when it plans to give up the money. Malacca federal money to help buffer the financial shock after june twenty twenty s hurting places and go into specific examples because modern journalism believes. You don't understand unless they come up with actual people and It was november. When trump in twenty twenty his administration health officials began work on what they envisioned a fourth and final phase for the first time they would allow applications that were based on pandemic related losses and expenses from the second. Half of twenty twenty. The plan was sent for review by the white house office of management and budget according to senior hhs policy official from the trump administration. The binding team arrived.

Probably around the country, So it's you said the trump people, And that sort of reminds me that this is a little bit of an intraparty civil war that we're seeing right between traditional Republicans and Trump loyalists. How could this be prepared? Or is this a point of no return for the party? Well, I think this is going to be an ongoing issue for the Republican Party. Certainly the next four years, but really the next two years as we've got a a new midterm election coming up in 2022, who is going to lead the party? What is the party stand for? I think the Republican Party has lost its bearing its compass. It's North star. It's become a Trump party and the party is bigger than a president or any individual and I I'm not sure what they stand for. Anymore. It's not the party that I joined many, many years ago. So this is gonna be an issue The Republican Party. I mean, Biden's gonna have some management issues as well in his own party with his left wing, but I've always said it's not the left wing of the right wing of American politics. That that government and it's the center left seven right center right that govern this country and both parties. I think you're in a state of turmoil. That's former senator, former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Thank you for your time. Thank you. 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 method 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 the surrounding city or town all along. It's just been delusional that we could have these areas with high community spread and somehow protects long term care residents. It just doesn't work Staff come and go. Some work at multiple places and residents move in and out, too. Vaccine is a key turning point. But Connecticut says it's not a magic bullet. I think it will 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.
