Transformation of Worcester nursing home to Covid-19 facility paused due to Covid-19

WBUR reports the Beaumont Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center in Worcester has stopped transferring patients to another facility because one of the remaining patients has now tested positive for Covid-19.

Gov. Baker had announced plans earlier this week to convert nursing homes with up to a total of 1,000 beds into Covid-19 facilities for patients who still need care, but not at hospital levels.

I guess Gov. Baker did not forsee the possibility that the nursing homes chosen to be converted could be already infected with Covid-19. All it takes is one positive confirmation there to kill the move.

Governor Baker, isolating coronavirus patients is necessary, but first, do no harm. Otherwise, what you're advocating for seems more like government-sanctioned elder abuse than saving the lives of this very vulnerable population.
