If these #AntifaTerrorists are truly fighting for change with the #BlackLivesMattter movement against “#SystemicRacism”, then why wouldn’t they start by burning down all the #PlannedParenthood centers that are committing #Genocide within the Black Communities?

#covid19: are the elderly dying in nursing homes for a host of reasons other than the virus?

If any one has a loved one in a #nursinghomes w/ a story to share, please reach out.…
My friend in #Montreal recently was told he couldn't see 'old man joe' his elderly friend.

He had a mask & gloves and finally they let him in.

How many elderly people are signing #DNR forms? Tell me!


In the words of #jerome, do it for your abuelita.
Meanwhile my aunt died. If cancer, not coronavirus. We can't go to the funeral. Body is being cremated.

Do we realize what is being done, stripping us of our ability to bury our dead like in Africa with Ebola?

I have some thoughts, as someone who has surely spent WAY more time in both settings. There r some good points here, but since you don't know @ASlavitt let me help you and your hoard understand. First off, the "isolation" thing 1/
In memory units, without physical or chemical restraints (which are not allowed based on the regulations and for good reason) IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to truly isolate patients on one unit with dementia without doing further harm to them. So understand that please. 2/
As for the bit about saving lives....those who are in nursing homes/dependent on others to exist, are, by definition, at "end of life". Dont get me wrong I don't like my patients dying, but plz DO not use this population to stoke fear/panic/outrage. It just leads to lawsuits. 3/

#medtwitter and everyone. Pls read this thread. I want ppl to know what those in #nursinghomes and #PALTC med are doing, without the recognition. For every person u save from #COVID inpatient, please know, we're working non-stop to help you, and it's taking its toll. 1/
As early as 3/1 we've shut down visitors, tried to mitigate spread. But we're not the hospital and have less resources. And hospitals rely on us to d/c patients who can't go home. We're taking your pts, knowing full well they may bee carriers of #COVID but testing was not done.2/
Simultaneously we've been forcing the hard conversations, trying to get patients/surrogates to understand the futility in #fullcode status + even hospitalization right now. Meanwhile families have not been allowed to visit in 4 wks +. Despite r efforts, #COVID is in our own 3/

Talked to my dear friend @rlhillier who's been running nursing homes for decades. They're doing everything they can but could use your help...
