They Knew—They Didn’t Care

Nursing Home 'Patients Will Die', Staff Warned New Jersey – PJ Media

I may have to re-assign my “horrible, horrible person” label from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) to Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY). I guess I could save time and just assign it to all Democrats.

Last March, as Gov. Phil Murphy (D-N.J.) ordered nursing homes to admit patients recovering from COVID-19, nursing home administrators warned New Jersey Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli that the new policy amounted to a death sentence for elderly residents.

“Patients will die,” an unidentified administrator declared, according to a recording of the March 21, 2020 meeting first reported by NJ Advance Media. “You understand that by asking us to take COVID patients, by demanding we take COVID patients, that patients will die in nursing homes that wouldn’t have otherwise died had we screened them out.”

About 8,000 COVID-19 deaths — roughly 40 percent of New Jersey’s 21,000 COVID-19 deaths — trace back to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. On March 31, Murphy’s administration directed nursing homes to re-admit residents who had been discharged from hospitals while recovering from COVID-19.

They knew. They didn’t care. They were too busy getting on TV and promoting themselves.

Like the kids in cages in the last post, I’m sure this is all Trump’s fault somehow. He was out herding up senior citizens and shoving them into China Virus dens.

Andrew Cuomo did this.

And the left and the media (but I repeat myself) let him get away with it. Because it was important to show how great Democrats are and how awful Trump was.

Now we know the truth.
