Cuomo denies his own doctrine on nursing homes


Finger Lakes Daily News  

This is America's pandemic sweetheart talking here. 

"The premise of your question is factually wrong"

 "We never needed nursing home beds, we had hospital beds. We had extra beds at Javits. It just never happened that we needed a nursing home to take a COVID positive person. It just never happened."

 “I put my head on the pillow at night saying I saved lives, that’s how I sleep at night.”


"That is not quite true"


 New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo argued that nursing homes "never needed" to accept Covid-positive patients from hospitals in the state.

During a press call Wednesday, Finger Lakes News Radio asked Cuomo about his administration's advisory in late March requiring that nursing homes accept the readmission of patients from hospitals, even if they were positive for Covid-19.
Cuomo argued that the advisory was a precaution if hospitals became overwhelmed -- calling it an "anticipatory rule" -- which he said didn't happen.
"We never needed nursing home beds because we always had hospital beds," Cuomo told Finger Lakes News. "So it just never happened in New York where we needed to say to a nursing home, 'We need you to take this person even though they're Covid-positive.' It never happened."
Facts First: Cuomo's assertion that "it never happened" is false. According to a report from the New York State Department of Health, "6,326 COVID-positive residents were admitted to [nursing home] facilities" following Cuomo's mandate that nursing homes accept the readmission of Covid-positive patients from hospitals. Whether or not this was "needed," it did in fact happen.
 On March 25, the state's Health Department issued an advisory requiring nursing homes to accept "the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals" if the patients were deemed medically stable.
"No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19," the advisory stated. "[Nursing homes] are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission."

The delusional thinking of a psychopath. Not much difference from Nazis who felt they were doing humanity a great service in exterminating Jews.

In a saner era this guy would be institutionalized-lunatic asylum or prison. Then again, in a saner era this guy never would have been elected in the first place.

I don't know why New Yorker's keep electing this guy. Are you sure that's him or is it Chris. Do all the Cuomo's have that thousand yard stare? You get what you elect. If he is in denial, that's something he will have to do the rest of his life.

Sadly I agree with you. That's why the DemoKKKrat criminal cartel wants to do away with guns via staged incidents where the perp is always dead.
Imagine if Jews were armed to the teeth, Hitler would have left them alone, think Switzerland's neutrality was enforced with lots of weapons and a standing army.

He needs to be gone. Join his brother Fredo at CNN maybe. So they can gaslight together.
First though is the little matter about the nursing homes and over 10,000 elderly dead because of his policies.

Look at Fredo how stupid he looks after all the steroids he took:

No wonder he is violent and wants to beat up people if they mention he should wear a mask like his brother demanded via executive order.

After what when on here people celebrating Andrew Cuomo as a hero has me pissed off shaking my head. This is nothing more then a dishonest, thug, corrupt demagogue in love with his own voice. Not a hero!!
Are Democrats that desperate they hail “hero” to the hapless fool who crippled New York’s economy, berated New Yorkers who didn’t fall in lock-step with his radical agenda, and spent more time over the last three years suing President Trump than actually governing the state? He famously berated New Yorkers who had the temerity to oppose abortion and support gun ownership – telling us to leave HIS precious state because we don’t share HIS values. “You have no place in the state of New York,” this shit ball proclaimed.
In other words, if you don’t fall in line, you have no values and should get the hell out! – especially law abiding citizens who do not share Prince Andrew’s “values.” Hey, I got to spend 2 days on a hospital floor and died dehydrated with near renal failure as criminals and illegal's with no paperwork to process were bumped up over law-abiding citizens. A close family of mine wiped completely out because of this assholes meddling with and overruling nursing home staff and doctors.
This bastard now claims that he is an immigrant. He sanctimoniously demanded that if President Trump wants to deport immigrants, then “start with me!!!“ Slime ball Andrew isn’t an illegal. In fact he isn’t even an immigrant. Cuomo, like his father before him, was born in Queens – you know, just like President Trump.

Wow. Not a word on nursing homes.

Don't worry, his executive order will be quashed by the Constitution.
Typical Socialist, Marxist, Commie dictator speech.
Stalin would be proud of him.

Watch it Andy. You are next.

The criminal Cabal is going down.
Only Creeper is running for President.
The rest of you are fair game.

You get a chance to explain to our fellow African-American brothers and sisters how the prison industry is using them. They will explain to you and your corrupt DA-s and judges the situation about REAL black lives matter. Not to you, they don't.

Also the folks with parents, relatives in the nursing homes.
How they were exterminated under your watch.

Good luck, you'll need it.

Orders to shut down parts of NYC. Like a Banana Republic dictator.

I guess the report came out about the real Russian collusion. Now we have shutdowns again.
