COVID Positive Patient Transfers to Nursing Homes and Alternate Sites: Need Your Input

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

GNYHA is asking for your help to determine how many SNF and ACF are equipped to assist with hospitals needing to discharge medically stable patients who are still testing positive for COVID-19. One option the Governor may consider is to identify institutions that would maintain a COVID-only status for the duration of the pandemic and care for discharged hospital patients during their convalescence. These could be existing nursing homes that could reconfigure their operations for a time with your help and supervision. Please see attached letter for full information and provide input directly to the GNYHA staff listed there.
