One year after the Wolf Administration ordered the state’s long-term care community to accept COVID-19 positive patients, I joined with a group of my colleagues at a Tuesday press conference to highlight the ongoing lack of accountability and cooperation from Governor Wolf while calling on the Governor to fully engage with the state’s long-term care community.
The issues discussed at the press conference included:
- the Wolf Administration’s orders impacting long-term care facilities;
- the lack of availability for widespread testing for facility employees;
- the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at long-term care facilities despite a state stockpile; and
- the initial exclusion of the long-term care community from vaccine rollout planning.
