Minority long-term care residents, staff bear heavy COVID burden

first_imgAdding to mounting evidence of racial health inequities in the United States, two University of Rochester in New York studies published yesterday in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society show that minority residents and caregivers in nursing homes and assisted living facilities have suffered the most amid the COVID-19 pandemic.The studies include data from 7 of the 13 states that reported cases and deaths to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services through May 29: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina.Testing capacity, infection prevention protocolsIn a modeling study on disparities in coronavirus infections and deaths in 12,576 nursing homes the week of May 25, researchers found that facilities with low proportions of minority residents had, on average, 0.4 new COVID-19 residents each week (0 cases in 93% of facilities), versus 1.5 in those with higher proportions of minorities (0 in 78.9%).In multivariable regression analysis, the likelihood of one or more new resident cases was 76% higher in the high-proportion minority group. Likewise, COVID-19 weekly deaths were 0.1 in the low-proportion group, versus 0.4 in the high-proportion group.Weekly new coronavirus cases in staff members were 0.3 in low-proportion nursing homes, compared with 1.3 in those with high proportions. Self-reported shortages of staff and personal protective equipment (PPE) did not significantly differ between the two groups.But “it is likely that nursing homes predominated by racial/ethnic minority residents face more of other institution-wide issues, such as poor testing capacity, and inadequate staff knowledge and training in infection control and prevention,” Yue Li, PhD, lead author of the study, said in a University of Rochester news release.Nursing home staff in communities of color, who provide most of the direct patient care in such facilities, are more likely than whites to live in crowded homes, rely on public transportation to get to and from work, have low pay, and lack benefits, the authors said.Assisted living centers ‘ill prepared’A second study evaluated 2,542 COVID-19 infections and 675 deaths in assisted living centers. Statewide case-fatality rates ranged from 3.3% in North Carolina to 9.3% in Connecticut, in contrast with 12.9% and 31.6% among assisted living residents in those two states.Of assisted living centers with one or more COVID-19 cases, mid-sized communities had fewer overall cases than smaller ones. And facilities with higher proportions of minorities and residents with dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and obesity had the most coronavirus cases—but not deaths.In the news release, the authors said that the pandemic has worsened disparities between facilities with divergent levels of resources and quality of care. Assisted living facilities, they said, are usually “ill prepared” to care for sicker residents and often have limited oversight, inexperienced or low-level staff, and PPE shortages. They are also subject to only state—not federal—regulations, which may or may not be rigorous.They added that the federal government has given funding meant to address testing, PPE, and staff shortages only to the roughly 16% of assisted living facilities that serve Medicaid-eligible residents.”Relying on [assisted living] communities to muster a rigorous response to the COVID-19 pandemic largely on their own is clearly unrealistic,” the authors concluded. “Assisted living communities and their residents urgently need local, state, and the federal governments to pay at least the same level of attention as that given to nursing homes.”last_img read more

Newcastle’s Dubravka feels win is just around the corner, doesn’t care…

first_imgConceding two goals in the first ten minutes, it looked like his fate was sealed, but a second half comeback ensured he stuck around for a while longer, as the Red Devils beat the Magpies 3-2.Despite the scoreline, Martin Dubravka, Newcastle’s goalkeeper, still performed well, hardly at fault for any of the goals, and the Slovakia international has been highly praised for the way he has played ever since he arrived on loan from Sparta Prague last season, a move which was subsequently made permanent in the summer.However, for the 29-year-old, his performances are pointless if the team cannot win, as he explained to Sport.sk on Wednesday.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “I’m sorry, but if the team doesn’t succeed, I don’t really care about my performance, even if I make three or four saves. I try and build a great inner-well being in the games and I try to prove that I deserve to be in goal. The fight for a spot is very tough here, and I make use of every game”.Currently 19th in the Premier League, Newcastle are one of three unfortunate sides, alongside Huddersfield and Cardiff, who are yet to pick up a win this season.For Dubravka, it’s just a matter of time.He said: “I firmly believe we will finally succeed. Always look at the performance. This team has a fantastic atmosphere and the whole club makes us very comfortable. “I believe we will win, and we’ll bring some good back to Newcastle. We’re going to perform better and finally get a winning streak”.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoCNBC InternationalSingapore’s Freelancers Find New Income During the Coronavirus Pandemic.CNBC InternationalUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoInstant Voice TranslatorGenius Japanese Invention Allows You To Instantly Speak 43 LanguagesInstant Voice TranslatorUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題Undo Dubbed as José Mourinho’s potential last game as Manchester United manager, the weekend clash against Newcastle couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start for the Portuguese manager.last_img read more
