    Twenty-three people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with 13 of those deaths — all nursing home patients — apparently related to the side effects of the shots, health officials said. Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, said in a Friday statement. All 13 were nursing home patients and at least 80 years old. While officials aren’t expressing serious concern, they are adjusting their guidance on who should...

    A Covid-19 outbreak at a Cayuga County nursing home that began two weeks ago has infected 137 residents, 24 of whom have died.

Forty-seven employees have tested positive. Since the outbreak began, 21 residents have died at The Commons and three in the hospital, Sheedy said. Eleven residents have died since Wednesday, she said. There had been no nursing home Covid-19 deaths in...

    Three organizations representing nearly 700 Pennsylvania’s nursing homes are suing Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration in what they term is a fight for some of the facilities’ survival and to protect their residents and staff against the coronavirus. The lawsuit filed on Monday in Commonwealth Court demands the administration direct the more than $153 million allocated to Pennsylvania through the first federal stimulus package, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, to these health providers that care for tens of thousands of the state’s older and vulnerable residents. In Pennsylvania, the state Department of Health reported on Tuesday there are 40,541 resident...

    An elderly man was struck by a stray bullet while sleeping in his Queens nursing home, police said Tuesday. The near-fatal incident unfolded in Corona around 11:15 p.m. on Saturday night when the 76-year-old woke up bleeding from the right side of his neck and was rushed to Northwell Hospital, according to cops. The man was treated and sent back to Madison York Assisted Living — but the cause of his injury remained a mystery.

    Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that New York State’s more than 6,000 nursing home deaths allegedly caused by his order to put patients infected with coronavirus back in facilities was a conspiracy theory. Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “There has been a lot of confusion about an alleged March 25th order that directed nursing homes to accept in New York, infected COVID patients, possibly leading to the death of more than 6,000 seniors. Now you say in your book that that was a lie, that New York state never demanded or directed that any nursing home...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stated that he doesn’t wish he could redo his coronavirus nursing home policy and that “it was wholly non-consequential.” Host Anderson Cooper asked, “You have gotten criticism for, there were more than 6,000 people who died in nursing homes in New York from COVID, some of your critics have pointed to a directive back in March releasing COVID patients into nursing homes as the root cause of the high death toll. Given what we now know, is that something that you wish you would go — could go...

    In a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) criticized President Donald Trump for giving off the “impression” that he is to blame for the large number of nursing home deaths amid the coronavirus pandemic in his state. Cuomo, whose state’s policy was to send COVID-positive patients back into nursing homes, said Trump is creating “a narrative which is factually untrue.” He added that he finds such action by the president “reprehensible” and “cruel” to the families who lost loved ones.

    LANSING, MI -- Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel will no longer enforce the governor’s executive orders by criminal prosecution, though she urges residents to continue following COVID-19 safety guidelines. The announcement from Nessel’s office comes after the Michigan Supreme Court decision on Friday, Oct. 2, ruled the governor does not have authority to extend emergency orders under two emergency acts -- the Emergency Management Act from 1976 and the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act from 1945. Neither act, the court ruled, gave Gov. Gretchen Whitmer the authority to continue declaring states of emergency or issuing unilateral orders under them...

    CNN's coverage of Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's nursing home controversy appears to be shifting after months of virtually ignoring the subject. Cuomo has faced intense scrutiny over an order he made back in late March that forced nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for coronavirus, despite testing deficiencies for both residents and staff. Cuomo signed an executive order on May 11 reversing the policy, stopping hospitals from sending infected patients back to nursing homes and ramping up testing for staff. During that period, roughly 6,326 coronavirus patients were admitted in New York nursing homes, according to...

    Early on in the coronavirus pandemic, Amanda Roy and her siblings considered bringing their 61-year-old mother, Anna Littlejohn, to live in their homes rather than in the Madison nursing home where she has spent nearly three years after developing a bone infection from a cyst on her knee. With other health problems including diabetes and high blood pressure, Littlejohn was especially vulnerable to COVID-19, an illness that has caused many of the state’s virus deaths as it has spread through long-term care facilities. But ultimately, Littlejohn’s children couldn’t make the logistics work to move her out of Maplecrest Rehabilitation and...

    New York beachgoers were greeted with what appears to be a grim anti-Cuomo banner in the sky Saturday. “THE GOV KILLED NANA,” read the banner carried on a propeller plane that flew across New York City and Long Island beaches, according to accounts on social media. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been widely criticized for his handling of the state-regulated nursing homes, where at least 6,447 New Yorkers died during the health crisis. One Rockaway beachgoer told The Post the plane flew by around 4 p.m. as observers stopped to take pictures and applauded the message. “The people were going crazy,”...

    As COVID-19 was ravaging nursing home populations, which saw over half of the state’s pandemic deaths, the Illinois Department of Public Health chose for 3 1/2 months not to investigate 272 complaints of abuse and neglect. IDPH failed to investigate complaints between March 15 and June 30 despite laws requiring it to do so, the department admitted in a press release issued Aug. 21. The acknowledgement comes a month after IDPH fired Debra Bryars, an agency deputy director who ran the Office of Health Care Regulation. The agency had also placed Aimee Isham, who oversaw the Bureau of Long-Term Care,...

    The Justice Department is seeking data about “orders which may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents,” sending letters Wednesday to the governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Officials say Wednesday that the Justice Department’s civil rights division is evaluating whether to initiate investigations under a federal law that protects the rights of people in state-run nursing homes and other facilities. Prosecutors are trying to determine whether state orders requiring admission of COVID-19 patients to nursing homes could have led to deaths. Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband says the federal government must...

    Andrew Cuomo's got a load of nerve. Imagine being one of the relatives of the thousands of elderly nursing home residents who died as a result of their residences becoming sealed incumbators for COVID, which Andrew Cuomo literally ordered. These people were banned from visits from their own families for their own 'safety' they said. Yet it was Potemkin stuff, they had no protection from COVID, as they had to breathe the air of coughing, infected patients all around them, with absolutely no way to get away from it. Once they got it, they died alone. It's the biggest scandal of the COVID era....

     LOS ANGELES – Longwood Management Corporation and 27 affiliated skilled nursing facilities (Longwood) have agreed to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by submitting false claims to Medicare for rehabilitation therapy services that were not reasonable or necessary, the Department of Justice announced today. Longwood is headquartered in Los Angeles, and the 27 skilled nursing facilities are located in Southern California.         “Longwood’s business plan called for substantial revenue from Medicare, and it pressured therapists to provide additional, unnecessary services when targets were not met,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna. “This case demonstrates the power of whistleblowers...
