NJ News Commons: MURPHY SAYS NURSING HOMES SHOULD PAY PRICE FOR COVID

MURPHY: NURSING HOMES SHOULD PAY PRICE FOR COVID On CBS, Gov. Phil Murphy spoke about concerns over his administration's work to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 in nursing homes. Some blame sits with the facilities who failed to follow the health department's "explicit, black-and-white" instructions, Murphy said. While it's true that the state's policy asked long-term care facilities to not turn away COVID-positive residents, Murphy said the state told the facilities the residents must live in "their own wing, their own building" — and if that wasn't possible, operators were told to "come to us and we'll find another alternative." Still, some facilities "did not take our advice," Murphy said, and "they deserve to pay a price for that." (Patch / CBS News)... Read more →

The effective, long term fix for the dysfunctional mess that is Washington, DC

Federal waste usually takes the form of a $1 million federal research grant or a $10,000 office chair. But this is a whole different ball game. NPR reported last week that the Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs have wasted $1 billion taxpayer dollars. But that money wasn’t used developing a new missile system or building a new hospital. No, the feds burned $1 billion on a totally failed effort to integrate medical records between the two departments. But it doesn’t stop there. Rather than abandon the project, they’re doubling down. Now they plan to spend $1 billion per year over the next 10 years to continue their efforts, which experts believe might not even be successful. This is unconscionable. The U.S. government is...
