1. "Vinh-Kim Nguyen, a physician at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal who helped at two long-term care homes last month, said barring family caregivers from facilities at the same time staffing levels dropped resulted in residents with COVID-19 dying from dehydration. "
2. "“Things sort of spiraled out of control, and very clearly, many of these patients did not have to die because they would have been fine if they were hydrated and fed,” said Dr. Nguyen"

3. "A small French study found that “confinement disease” is likely more detrimental than COVID-19 itself. The April paper concluded that more than 24 deaths at a long-term care facility that staff believed were due to the virus were mainly from hypovolemic shock"

4. "The victims had been confined to their rooms for days with no assistance eating or drinking due to low staff numbers and a lack of personal protective equipment."

5. "A military report last week on conditions in five Ontario seniors homes detailed a litany of failings, including that residents at one facility didn’t receive three meals a day and aides at another residence weren’t helping people eat."

6. "People with dementia, who make up about two-thirds of the long-term care population, are particularly vulnerable. Many need partial or full feeding assistance, which takes time that staff don’t always have."
