FLASHBACK, March 2020: Caller To "Mark Levin Show" Explains Cuomo's "Unbelievable" Nursing Home COVID Policy

|

During a March 2020 edition of the Mark Levin Show, a caller who says she is a medical director at a nursing home tried to get the word out about New York's policy with respect to COVID patients being placed in nursing homes.

"Are you pulling my leg, seriously?" host Mark Levin asked, sounding amazed. "Why would you send someone who has this irus into a population that can kill people. Are you serious? Why would he order this? It doesn't make any sense."

"I will point out that nursing homes are in the habit of accepting nursing homes from hospitals to continue their care," the caller said.


"But they must realize the most vulnerable people here are the elderly, and people in nursing homes already have issues?" Mark Levin wondered. "What is the point of this?"

"I'm looking at a [directive] from Andrew Cuomo dated March 25 that is ordering nursing homes to comply with the expedite receipt of resident from hospitals, if they are deemed appropriate to go into the nursing homes by the hospitals and they can not discriminate on the basis of COVID," the caller explained.
