Know Where COVID-19 Is Taking The Most Lives In Your Community | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1


Rachel Maddow points out that since the federal government is not doing anything to help prevent the loss of lives at nursing homes and long-term care facilities where the coronavirus is doing the most damage, Americans should make themselves aware on a local level where these facilities are.

    Republicans are pretty open about having written off anyone old and frail enough to live in a nursing home. They don’t even want to count them as covid deaths, on the grounds that “they were on their last legs anyway”.

      @pr0xZen Nope. Not even gonna read your little essay. Theres been dozens of doctors and nurses from New York on the record saying they’re not treating patients properly and are being instructed to put people on ventilators. There’s even been waterd down versions written about this in the media. Look it up

      @Giovanni Medina Your over the top accusations do not plead in favor of your IQ being assessed as anything above than just average. I’ve seen plenty of footage from NY hospital wards not that they are particularly informative since legal/ethical issues prevent showing patients and corporate PR control clamps down at least as hard to prevent uncomfortable leaks .
      It is however discussed amongst doctors that ventilating might be overprescribed and that oxygen plus regular position shifting could yield better results . COVID19 is a new beast and best practices will not emerge with a magical wand waiving, calling health-carers killers is idiotic ignorant thrash talk .

      You liberals are terrorist traitors supporting treason.

  2. Trump and the Republicans clearly want this virus to continue to spread. They’ve made that obvious. This is their way of cutting Social Security and Medicare.

      @claude ghendrih I mean its already been 5 months ! Shouldn’t we be experiencing the apocalypse right now?

      @Giovanni Medina Oh now it’s an already old overblown story is it ?
      What were you raving about nasty Andrew Cuomo and killing doctors then ?
      You’re about as incoherent as Trump is, a decayed callous partisan nonsense spewing hack.

    • Giovanni Medina | May 2, 2020 at 7:33 AM | Reply

      @claude ghendrih Because he is ! Its been 5 months and the rest of America is doing just fine, no hospital collapse, no surge in patients, deaths and cases are going down. Only New York is having a hard time and even at that not 1 hospital ever collapsed and none of the makeshift hospitals were used, or the ships ! Makes sense why Cuomo is sending elders to go infect everyone at the nursing homes he needs justification to get the 120billion bailout hes asking for !

    A lot of first responders, nurses, health care staff, paramedics, fire and emergency services have died from Coronavirus as well. A couple of first responders 5 year old daughter caught it from them and died. In times of crisis it’s most people who take the lead not politicians.

      Can’t rely on, “government,” that’s for sure. They’re more likely to get you killed. It’s up to us, America. And, maybe we could restore the Republic, come November? . . . That might save lives?

    NZ has had 20 deaths, sadly. I feel 18 or 19 were rest home residents

      @I’m not depressed No -not ‘resting’ homes but rest homes. Most facilties are called retirement villages but as people require more care they are called rest home facilities, no different to nursing care to be honest. It is simply a point where a person needs a little more help and can have rest from doing everything for themselves – how does that differ from a ‘nursing’ home? It is simply a matter of symantics.

    • Trish Penn | May 3, 2020 at 3:23 AM | Reply

      Fellow Kiwi here and yes it is incredibly sad how many of our deaths have been from rest homes. My 94 year old aunt passed away just on a year ago and I have grieved for her but I have been grateful she hasn’t had to go through this time where I would not have been able to visit her every day and she may have had trouble understanding why not. I personally take some comfort in that but am aware that there may be so many of our dear elderly who are suffering in many ways through this time. Kia kaha.

  9. the white house is also a nursing home

  10. I play little concerts with a fellow artist at nursing homes in the parking lots.

    Many think of my profession as obsolete. That’s fine. I see the joy on the faces.

    Australia is still losing people in nursing homes.

    • Yolande Robinson | May 3, 2020 at 4:45 AM | Reply

      Jade Costello Yes, but they are single digits in the days they are being lost, they aren’t being lost every day, and only two nursing homes in the nation are affected. The US cannot be compared to our response and results. They are in a world of trouble with no decent leadership.

      People in nursing homes are generally premorbid.

    • Mr Brightside | May 3, 2020 at 6:06 PM | Reply

      @Brendan Yusof You obviously dont know what premorbid means. Oldies in nursing homes have full blown morbid conditions.

    • by that you mean there there as a last stop. i understand. BUT what about a younger stronger or older stronger person that might be there as a bridge to getting well? these kind of patients are there too.

    • Brendan Yusof | May 9, 2020 at 6:29 AM | Reply

      Medical Definition of premorbid
      : occurring or existing before the occurrence of physical disease or emotional illness
      The survivability of any burn is dependent on many factors, including, but not limited to, age, premorbid status, and extent and depth of burn.

    Beautiful show of support for nursing homes. So much wisdom stored up in our nursing homes. Blessings on the elder folk🌻

    • It frightens me to ponder what reality you live in, we lost over 60 residents in our little town. Why, because the director did not test asymptomatic employees. He/She should be terminated without benefits. Any I’m being kind. If they were from another part of the world they’d be stoned to death, that sounds about right, Being stupid isn’t a right.

      @Fiona Animates, it’s been several years since I worked in that field. Do you have any type of PPE, other than gloves?
      I’m just wondering the wassup for the nowadays. Ha. That sounds like something an old person would say! I am!
      Stay safe!

    • Fiona Animates | May 5, 2020 at 6:53 AM | Reply

      Maggie Rezac we wear surgical masks and so do the residents. We’ve been doing that since late March. We wear gloves and change them regularly throughout our shifts. We take our temperature before and after them too. I work in dietary and everyone eats six feet apart and no visitors allowed. We removed tablecloths too. It’s been a roller coaster, but I’m hoping things will get back to normal. Thanks for reading!

      @Fiona Animates Excellent, I hadn’t thought about the table cloths! Sounds like your home is on top of things! Thank you for the positive news! Stay safe!

  16. Trump said he was proclaiming “seniors month,” or some such nonsense.

    • Yeah, he plans to pick the month when the most seniors die in this country, so he’ll announce if after the fact. ; )

      You Malthusians have been wrong and wrong and wrong again for the past 200 years. When I was a kid the population was 3 billion and kwashiorkor was a problem. Now the population is 6.5 billion, kwashiorkor is gone, but obesity is the most prevalent form of malnutrition.

    “Know Where COVID-19 Is Taking The Most Lives In Your Community” is **not** as helpful as immediately knowing who among us, at any given moment, are unwittingly contagious, in order to convince them to turn around, go home (i.e. no visiting relative(s) in nursing homes), call their doctor, and self-quarantine per their doctor.

  19. People in my community did this same kind of drive through, beeping and waving to at my local VA hospital nursing home. It was so amazing and I know how much they loved it because my husband works there and witnessed it.
