Re: “The Shut Out

This story is well done, accurate as far as I can tell, and long overdue. To be clear, there has been essentially no admissions to the nursing homes for months. Not from the hospitals, not from the community, not for Hospice patients, not for PACE patients. Not for patients with Medi-Cal, Medicare, or any other kind of payment mechanism as far as I can tell. None. This has led to overburdened hospital systems and prolonged stays in the acute setting...this leads to trouble and suffering. This has led to inadequate home-based care plans...this leads to trouble and suffering for patinets and caregivers alike. Nobody prefers a nursing home environment, even a well-run nursing home. In the current scenario we are functioning in this already medically distressed and deficient community healthcare system without a safety net. On the ground, everyday, this translates to the suffering of our most vulnerable neighbors, family members, and friends. I am ashamed and saddened ....this is a political and criminal emergency. www.ResolutionCare.com
