    NY is one of the states that doesn't require minimum staffing at nursing homes. That's been a huge problem for years. They never did anything to fix it. Cuomo has been in office nearly a decade. He knew about it and did nothing. That's on him.

    **** him. He killed 100s if not 1000s of nursing home patients.

    This place I'm at is so shorthanded it isn't funny. Been that way for a while now and it really reflects in the care that people are getting. It's not a good situation.

    Traditional understanding of the economy are over. This virus will change how society views schools and restaurants and clubs for example. Churches and other institutions as well. Business as usual is over. We may need less fossil fuel as people drive less to work and to recreation. What we thought was the quick fix to help the economy when Trump took over like fossil fuel production in the US in gas, coal, natural gas, shale is not sustainable right now. If Trump can repatriate manufacturing here I will vote for him again. I voted for him cause he promised to bring manufacturing back to the US but it those jobs die not return

    I disagree with some of their stances not all.

    Christ Clown, I wanted Florida to stay closed until June 1 and see how things are before starting Phase 1.


    I wish you could make up your mind whether or not you wanted to wait till June 1st. I said that the other day and you said it wasn't correct. Which is it, Nicky?

    I'm really sorry to hear that. I truly hope you get the care you need and can make a full recovery as soon as possible to return home.

    Every time my agency is called to get a patient from a nursing home that needs to go to a hospital, we see first hand the lack of staff the places have.

    Hopefully this is a wake up call for Cuomo and NYS DOH and they change the requirements for the way they do minimum staffing at nursing homes. I douht it because they've had 8+ years to change it and haven't done ****.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    In my past job I used to visit Nursing homes in the Bronx and Manhattan for the Federal Govt daily for years. Nursing homes in NYC and State are worrisome. For one thing they are always seeking new residents and send out staff to hospitals and homeless shelters to get new residents. Many patients are people who are homeless often due to mental illness. They are not elderly just otherwise homeless. Now people from this community could have brought corona in unless the homes stopped this process when Covid was widely known. But I can tell you these facilities have cut back on their staff over the years and the quality of food has declined as well.

    I worked in group homes and nursing homes before finishing graduate school. The conditions are poor for the reasons you mentioned but its also a staffing issue. The fact is staff is not paid enough for the work they do and its a job that has a ton of turnover. I remember working in one group home IRA for about a year and I must have seen 100-150 people quit or get fired in that time.

    Its hard to ask 1 or 2 people to take care of 15-20 individuals over the course of 8 hours. Now you're asking those same staff who make 16 bucks an hour to handle people who have a potential deadly virus that is spreading like wild fire in those facilities. They're overmatched.

    Dr, I was being facetious with my comments about a car wash and a haircut.

    Btw, I got my car wash today. Personally I would have kept the car wash part open but I would have closed the vacuuming area to avoid touching anything....

    I still have not got a haircut since mid March

    The thing is once you see these big companies release their quarterly earnings like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Alibaba, etc, they're going to see a significant drop in revenue. Who is going to pick buying the new Iphone over paying rent? Its one of those things where the market is in some correction (right now) from all the huge losses but it can't hedge those things forever.

    True or false, we knew about this virus in December? True. (\Possibly earlier)

    True or false, even after learning how transmissible it was in mid January, the president said it would be fin e, we were ready, it would go away...? True
    Do I fault any leader for not taking more aggressive steps in January or early February? No.

    True or false, in mid February, the president was still saying the same stuff? True.


    We knew about it for 2.5 months. We did very little. We are still doing very little
