(NJ) Paramus veterans home in crisis mode: 37 people dead in 2 weeks, National Guard deployed
“It’s sad that people in their “golden years” have to live like this.”
Tough duty for the young Guardsmen too.
where are their families? can’t the families take their elderly home to care for them?
This thing does ravage nursing homes of it gets inside. That is where all the lockdowns should be focused.
How did they let it get that bad!
where are their families? cant the families take their elderly home to care for them? >>
most nursing homes in NJ closed them to the public a month ago to protect the residents from visitors who may be carriers of the virus.
How did they let it get that bad! >> it’s bad here in NJ, most of the nurses, aides, etc. have the virus or came in contact with someone positive and are in quarantine, this happens fast, one day you have a staff, the next you don’t.
Very sad. Have to wonder if the inhibitions placed by Governor Murphy on the timely use of hydroxychloroquine had anything to do with the high death rate.
I have a friend who worked in a nursing home, and she said the staff would always come in to work sick. It made her mad because sometimes she would catch it, too.
Absolutely. They’re young, and many probably have young families.
A lot of military people tend to marry their jobs, so some may never have had a family.
And military life is inherently hard on family life, so the military has always had a really high divorce rate.
I’d bet that convalescent homes account for more than 10% of coronavirus deaths. There’s got to be a connection with the health care workers and the infections. Maybe a lot of the workers are Asian And possibly traveled internationally?
336 beds, and operated by the state of New Jersey.
BTW, when the word likely is used in the discussion of the death toll, that’s a red flag.
Here in Indiana a lot are recent immigrants from Somalia and other such places. They barely speak English, but work cheap and don’t demand much from their employers.
I’ve told my kids i’d rather be pushed out on an ice-flow and left to drift than to be put in a home.
They are all locked down and confined in one small building. There is no way to get away from the virus.
Most of these homes for the aged employ third worlders
Haiti, Philippines and Dominican Republic nurses, aides and other staff.
Bad personal hygiene, shiite hole neighboorhoods and diseased family and friends make these employees infection vectors.
Elderly residents are sitting ducks.
Once enough of ‘em form a big enough community, they’ll be listing their demands.
