Care Facilities Have Become Death Traps Due to COVID-19

Health Editor’s Note: The people who are in nursing and care homes have been hit the hardest by coronavirus. Some care facilities have lost a large percentage of their residents to COVID-19. These care facilities locked down early on in the pandemic with no visitors allowed but the fact that the caregivers could come and go was not carefully thought out.  COVID-19 was brought into these facilities by the care workers and then spread like wildfire because quarantine/personal protection measures were not used. 

With the lack of oversight that family member visits would give to the residents of these care centers it seems as though neglect became the order of the day. From the beginning, the care workers should have been constantly wearing PPE equipment to protect the residents.  A worker who had COVID-19 spread it to a patient who in turn spread it to other residents as the coronavirus infected individuals were not quickly quarantined. 

Workers did not use masks and physical distancing and also masks and physical distancing was not used between residents. The residents had no where to go to get away from the coronavirus as this was their home. 

This is by far not the only long-term care facilities that has faced many dead due to coronavirus. This has happened all over the U.S. and the world. The only way to have not spread coronavirus to the residents, who already were not having visitors is to have had the caretakers stay at the facility to insure they did not become infected and then bring the virus to the residents….Carol

  1. In the UK we have the same situation, although they seem to have run out of available nearly dead people at the moment. One thing that did change with the Coronavirus Act was that they resorted to requiring just one person to complete a death certificate. The process had been changed some years ago after Dr Harold Shipman went on his grannie killing spree. After that business the law required that a suitably qualified examiner checked the case with someone who knew the deceased.
    I know of one old lady who died in a care home, she was 94 and had been bedridden for 15 years following a stroke. All she had was her sight and the use of her right arm. The Doctor who signed the certificate had never seen her, or her medical records. According to the cert. she died of Parkinsons and Covid, neither of which she had been diagnosed with. That’s how they fraudulently boost the numbers.
