Testing for nursing home coronavirus infections shows 24 cases, filling in blanks from early April
Families of nursing home residents have complained of not being able to find out the situation at their loved ones’ homes from the state or the nursing homes. “The transparency has been unbelievable – there isn’t any,” said Alison Weingartner, executive director of Massachusetts Advocates for Nursing Home Reform. The organization opposes clearing out some nursing homes to make room for Covid-19 patients leaving hospitals but still needing care.
