An unprecedented Supreme Court case that is paving the way for safe visitation during Covid-19 in Nursing Facilities.. The discrepancy of practicing the State and Federal compassionate care visitation guidelines ~ hurt our vulnerable for nearly two years causing accelerated decline, failure to thrive and death from isolation
From the beginning of the pandemic, the Visitation Guidance for long term care facilities pointed to approved visits if 'medically necessary' and 'end of life'. This entry of a specialist, compassionate care visitor and medically necessary visitors was permitted. However, facilities failed to practice this directive defending their position citing no clear MUSTS from their own regulators. Lives were lost amidst this liability trance.
Our own Bobby V. never lost his Federal Right to receive neuro-care provided by essential care visits from his wife. This legal right is supported by the Federal Resident's Rights Law (483.10 (f) 2 and (f) 4) and yet, still, Facilities would not adhere to this Federal Law - both within the State of Emergency and when State of Emergency was rescinded.
Our own Supreme Court claim - restored visitation entry for Bobby V. noting his Federal right to receive his neuro-care visitor - which was his Wife. For nearly one year, Bobby's essential neuro-care visitor has been visiting daily, and Bobby V. is starting to speak again, stand again, and is being restored back to his baseline pre-pandemic after nearly one year of isolation.
