NEARLY HALF OF CONNECTICUT'S CORONAVIRUS-RELATED DEATHS LINKED TO NURSING HOMES

Posted by Lauren Beck | Apr 27, 2020 | 0 Comments

According to the Connecticut Post in  an article on Saturday April 25, 2020, the number of probable deaths associated with COVID-19 at nursing homes more than doubled this week to 768, according to state data released Friday evening. 

The Connecticut state data released April 16 reported 1,713 people had tested positive for COVID-19 at dozens of nursing homes and 375 people had died. The data released Friday showed 3,423 confirmed cases, 568 laboratory-confirmed coronavirus-associated deaths and 200 probable virus-related deaths according to the Connecticut Post.

In Stratford, 14 lab confirmed and four probable virus linked deaths at Lord Chamberlain Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Apple Rehab Shelton Lakes, with 106 beds and 50 confirmed cases, 14 lab confirmed and three probable virus associated  deaths. 

A Union representing 6000 workers at nearly a third of the state's 215 nursing homes, blames the death rate on lack of proper personal equipment, including masks, gowns, gloves and face shields. Both state and nursing home officials have refuted those claims according to the Connecticut Post.

Governor Ned Lamont on Thursday issued an executive order requiring all managed residential communities, including assisted living facilities, and all nursing homes to provide daily status reports to the state. Those that fail to comply with the reporting requirements in relation to COVID-19 cases could face a fine up to $5,000.00 for each violation.  

If you have a loved one who contracted the coronavirus in a nursing home and passed away please call me right away for a consulation.
