Who knew? NY State Dept of Health conducted an investigation on itself as to the impacts of Gov Cuomo’s order which forced nursing homes to take in people that tested positive for COVID-19. Verdict? Not guilty!
Cuomo’s DoH concluded that the governor’s mandate did not have a significant impact in terms of the 6,000+ fatalities.
Instead, it blamed family members and staffers who unknowingly brought the virus into these nursing homes.
A witness, Frank Kolbmann, told New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker in no uncertain terms that he is involved in “a disingenuous cosmetic attempt to cover up for your current boss’ immense crime.”
Janice Dean lost both her in-laws, Mickey and Dee Newman, in a New York nursing home and directly blames Cuomo’s mandate for this avoidable tragedy. According to Townhall, Dean sent in her formal request last week to testify. However, just hours before the hearing, she was dropped from the list.
We are quite sure there are many crooked companies that would love to be able to audit their own accounts and claim they are compliant with the soundest corporate governance standards.
Anything short of an independent investigation is a farce. One can imagine Victoria will follow a similar path of “independence” in its investigation on the second outbreak.
