Seema Verma, the administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), told Breitbart News exclusively that New Yorks Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other Democrat governors originally issued guidance that contradicted federal guidelines for nursing homes battling the coronavirus pandemic.
I just want to make it very clear that our guidance was absolutely crystal clear, Verma said in an exclusive interview late last week. It was clear and unmistakable. Any insinuation to the contrary is woefully mistaken at best and dishonest at worst. We put out our guidance on March 13. Its very clear when it says that, Im actually going to read this to you, it says that: When should a nursing home accept a resident who is diagnosed with COVID-19? It says: A nursing home can accept a resident diagnosed with COVID-19 and still under transmission-based precautions, which means if this person is infectious you have to take precautions. It says as long as the facility can follow CDC guidance for transmission-based precautions. It says: If a nursing home cannot, it must wait until these precautions are discontinued, meaning if you are not able to care for this patientsomebody is still positive and youre not equipped to care for the patient, then you shouldnt accept the patient into your care. Thats really important because longstanding dischargewhen youre discharging a patient from the hospital, longstanding guidelines require when you transfer them somewhere you transfer them to a place that can take care of their needs whether theyre going home or theyre going to a nursing home or some other facility.

Frigging worthless Fed. Damnable teat sucker
This is what democracy looks like!
Really? Did they take a vote on it? Who was allowed to vote?
Where did the that quote come from? I didn't see it in the article.
Sorry! Wrong thread.
Cuomo lied. He said he was following Trump CDC guidelines. The granny killer issue is sticking.
The directive came out in March.
It was published on the website. In March.
I saw it on the website. In March.
The info was easily accessible to everyone.
Cuomo didn’t give a damn.
Cuomo, up until last month, also allowed positive staffers to continue working at their facilities.
It won’t be long before Cuomo switches from blaming the “Federal Government” and changed gears to the “that was so long ago” defense.
