Tips for Those With Loved Ones In Care Facilities During Pandemic – Newsday

Families with loved ones in nursing homes have many questions about letting them remain in those facilities during the COVID-19 crisis. NEWSDAY’s Robert Brodsky has researched answers to some of these difficult questions, including:

  • How can you determine if your loved one’s facility is safe?
  • Should family members pull their loved ones from nursing homes or assisted living facilities and provide care at home?
  • What are the risks family members take by bringing loved ones home?
  • What do state and county health leaders say about removing residents from nursing homes and assisted living facilities?

John Dalli, a partner in the law firm Dalli & Marino LLP, advises doing your own research on that facility’s levels of care for its elderly residents.

“Many nursing homes are understaffed, which causes serious injuries like bedsores and falls due to neglect and abuse. Those particular owners are driven by only one thing: profits,” says Dalli. “So check the public health and safety records for your loved one’s facility. If there is a pattern of health and safety violations, you may have a problem. Contact an attorney to explore this issue further.”
