Coronavirus Spreading in Nursing Homes

The Texas Tribune reports that large outbreaks of the Covid-19 virus have occurred among residents and staff at Texas long-term care facilities in San Antonio, Lubbock, Texas City, and other cities.  State regulators have asked facilities to report coronavirus cases, and to inform residents and their families of cases within the facility.  While state government is collecting this data, it has failed to publicly release the numbers of cases and names of facilities where coronavirus has been reported.  The State Long-Term Care Ombudsman, which works to resolve resident complaints and problems related to resident rights, believes the Agency should release the data so that residents and their families can make informed health care decisions.  Texas long-term care facilities have received more citations for poor infection prevention and control than any other state in the past three years, except California, according to the article.  To read the article click here.
