Out-of-state nurses brought to Manhattan to fight the coronavirus say they found hellish conditions at the city-run adult-care center on Roosevelt Island — from patients with horrific bed sores to feces-smeared walls. “It was just heartbreaking,” said one of the RNs, a mom of four from Wisconsin who spent about 17 days at the Coler Rehabilitation and Nursing Care Center. “Patients were in deplorable conditions — very, very dirty, bed sores, terrible odors,’’ the FEMA-contracted nurse, 38, told The Post.

Comments:

Horrific stuff, hard reading, reminiscent of the Willowbrook scandal long ago. It's a city-run nursing home, and widespread substandard care is a dirty little secret behind a lot of the deaths in New York.

New York City has exposed the reasons for their high death rates by allowing outsiders in to see the nightmare. The nurse from Nevada dished on the horrible hospital nursing in a poor area, and now this. There is truly a great awakening and a revelation of the corruption of the left. The FBI and other ABC agencies exposed. The CDC and state pharmacy boards exposed. University professors and NIH grants exposed. WHO exposed. I feel like I am swimming in sewage and have been for years without knowing it. If Trump can't straighten out this mess, no one can. We have to hang tough and get him four more years to finish the job of pumping out this septic tank.

This is way beyond negligence and poor quality care. It is not just bordering on but IS criminality.

It's no wonder they want to blame all of these additional deaths on COVID-19. This country should not have facilities in this condition anywhere. The homeless and illegal aliens are treated better than our own citizens. Note the defensive bureaucratic speak used to dismiss the filthy conditions and hellish life of the patients. Heads should roll over this.

The nurses who work in these facilities are saints or tyrants but most are saints. In a city like NY the balance is shifted to the negative. I hope that if I reach that stage of life there will be some saints left.

They hire the cheapest custodial and food service labor they can for these places, some can't even read and write. Many of the "nurses" and techs are no better. This elder abuse is criminal! Is it any shock Covid ate through these places like the plague? And while I would like to say this is a NYC thing alone, it isn't. My mom was a geriatric psychiatric hospital ward social worker who did discharge planning for 20 years. She knew the good facilities and the ones she wouldn't send a dog to. State and city health inspections are unfortunately not a reliable metric, they are government employees doing the same "quality" of work so many of their ilk do.

Let's be clear. The medical field--at least in some places--doesn't care about the treatment or fate of elderly people. They are viewed as having a "poor quality of life" and are viewed as useless feeders. I saw neglect of my mother recently when she was in her last days. I was forced to become vigilant. God only knows what would have happened to her if I had not been with her every day.

This Is beyond words. So sad. Money grabbing sadists and liberal elitists. NYC is the sewer of the east. It’s not only the Mayor, Governor, but the management, the unqualified personnel, the state health authority that should be punished. Always wondered what went on in some of those buildings and now we have an idea. I am sure this is just the tip of the iceberg. No way should my tax dollars go to NYC scum!

Having seen, first hand, conditions in several nursing homes (we visited several each month, playing music for the residents) I would elect to shorten my life and die at home, rather than spend my last days in one of those places. I have sympathy for people who have no choice, due to lack of family interest or other reasons, and must go there to die.

I have a news flash for you, folks: ALL state-run nursing facilities are like this, to one degree or another. Once the employees start there, they can’t be fired, or held to account for their performance. It’s the GOVERNMENT. I think if I ever got to the point where I had to check into one of these places, I’d go out on my deck in the winter with a fifth of whiskey, and open my robe...

I don't know if there was a picture, but they had a truck trailer at Coler with the bodies that wouldn't fit in their facility - funeral homes were full. I heard about 25% of long term patients in a wing died. How would you like to be a paraplegic resident there - say due being shot from gang-shooting, and they wheel a hospital discharge into your room running a fever. As a resident, you were isolated, and how do you bring attention to the problem, if the workers that are working there don't have PPP, and you sure hope they come back next shift to risk getting Wuhan flu? You get the privilege, if you live through it, of being in Cuomo NY-city health care hell....

How a nursing home fared in this outbreak is likely a good measure of the quality of care overall. There have been 42 deaths in 'long term care' facilities in my county, out of 56 total deaths in the county, that is right at 75%. Of those, one facility had 14 deaths, two had one each. The worst facility had 76 cases, 14 deaths. The best facilities (three of them) had high single digit number of cases, one or two deaths. Huge differences. Why? I suspect it is due to quality of staff and caring. IMO, these kind of statistics are critically important to know for those who may be putting a loved one into a LTC in the future.

One of my parents was in custodial care for years and this made me cry. Even though it wasn't this bad, it wasn't good. The community hospital employees where they died caused their death. Without family allowed to visit during the lock down, horrible things they didn't write about probably happened too. We don't know but I can tell you minority workers most likely took it out on whitey. People that no one else will hire work at nursing homes and long term care facilities. Somebody needs to go to prison for this.

Transcripts of House Intelligence Committee interviews that have been cleared for release show top law enforcement and intelligence officials affirming they had no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, senior administration and intelligence community officials told Fox News on Wednesday. This would align with the results of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — which found no evidence of illegal or criminal coordination between President Trump, the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016 — but the numerous transcribed interviews could raise further questions about committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s past statements saying that there was “direct evidence” of collusion.

An essential principle of the United States is that it is a free country, with individual liberties guaranteed, and government power limited. That concept is now being tested.

The United States and the Taliban have agreed to a temporary truce that, if successful, would open the way for a deal that would bring American troops home from Afghanistan and end 18 years of war. The peace deal would call for negotiations between Afghans on both sides of the conflict to start next month, an eventual countrywide cease-fire and a commitment from the Taliban not to harbor terrorist groups like al Qaida, while setting a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The truce marks a milestone in efforts to end America’s longest-running conflict and fulfill President Donald Trump’s campaign pledge to bring U.S. troops home from foreign conflicts.
