By now, I'm sure you've heard about the heartbreaking losses that have occurred in long term care facilities (i.e., nursing homes) across New Jersey.
More than 50% of New Jersey’s COVID-19 deaths, which exceed 10,000, were among those living and working in nursing homes.
While Governor Murphy suddenly has tough words for these facilities, he is once again hiding the ball when it comes to his own Administration's handling of the situation.
The sad reality is that nursing homes, and that includes state-operated veterans' homes, were never prioritized by the Murphy Administration .
In fact, New Jersey nursing homes were on their own to acquire personal protective equipment (PPE) and they weren’t provided COVID-19 test kits until week six of the pandemic. This failure cost lives.
