Elder abuse?

While I have no particular love for former Vice President and corrupt politician Joe Biden, it pains me to see a fellow senior citizen – obviously suffering from a cogitative deficit, possibly as a result of a stroke or onset dementia, be exploited to advance a political agenda. Clearly, Biden is medically unfit to serve as the President of the United States, and yet his handlers put him before the cameras. It has gone far beyond simple verbal gaffes – the man is struggling to speak in complete and coherent sentences. Even reading from written notes is not working.


Even worse, dictatorial progressive socialist democrats are killing senior citizens… 

Common sense, backed by hard-number evidence, indicates that the most vulnerable to COVID-19 are the senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions. So why would any Governor demand that nursing homes and adult care facilities, with a large contingent of senior citizens, accept patients that have active COVID-19?

By order of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, unofficially running for the Democrat nomination as a replacement for Joseph Biden in the 2020 election…

New York Mandates Nursing Homes Take Covid-19 Patients Discharged From Hospitals

New York told nursing-home operators that they will be required to accept patients infected with the new coronavirus who are discharged from hospitals but may be still convalescing, amid more cases in the state that are straining the health-care system.

[OCS: Why are the major medical facilities closing down operations are furloughing employees if they are at capacity and sending employees home. New York has an abundance of hospital beds and ventilators. ]

The decision will draw pushback from some nursing-home officials, who have warned that such moves endanger residents who aren’t infected by the virus, because discharged patients may still be contagious. A group representing doctors who work in nursing homes, known as AMDA, the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, said in a recent resolution that “admitting patients with suspected or documented Covid-19 infection represents a clear and present danger to all of the residents of a nursing home.”

In the directive sent Wednesday to nursing homes, which was viewed by The Wall Street Journal, the New York State Department of Health said, “No resident shall be denied readmission or admission to the [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of Covid-19.”

In addition, the document said, nursing homes “are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for Covid-19 prior to admission or readmission.” <Source>

[OCS: This is unconscionable. Craziness leading to increasing active COVID-19 patients and deaths.

It is a fact that most nursing homes and adult care facilities have trouble meeting infection control standards with limited facilities, employees, and patients that wander from area to area. Patients who may not even be able to follow instructions.]

California is now admitting they were wrong…

LA Health Director Admits ‘We Were Wrong’ in Handling 40% of County COVID-19 Death Cases

We now know that in its zeal to shut things down to save frontline medical professionals and old people, the LA County Health Department missed a big tell.

There have been reports of coronavirus deaths at nursing homes since last month. The clusters were developing at eleven separate nursing home-like facilities. But now we know that fully 40% of the Wuhan virus deaths were people in nursing homes and “institutional” facilities. The County reports that 3,115 cases occurred in nursing homes and similar facilities; 1,826 of the cases were residents and the rest were staff.

But the possibility that asymptomatic people could spread the disease was known earlier.

The CDC reported that based on the Kirkland, Wash., nursing home cases, Chinese data and cases in Singapore, there was a distinct possibility of passing the disease along without ever developing symptoms. <Source>

Bottom line…

Once again, we find that the un-American progressive socialist democrats will say or do anything, fair or foul, to advance their ideological power grab and agenda.

If you are a senior citizen and/or have underlying conditions – beware, the Democrats are out to kill you. But don’t worry, your vote for the Democrats will be submitted after your death.

We are so screwed.
