Nursing Home Employees Claim They Need More PPE

Ohio nursing home employees have recently revealed that they “often do not have enough personal protective equipment or PPE,” sometimes not enough to work on a COVID-19 unit. One employee stated that she has used the same N-95 masks since the beginning of the pandemic. A recent study confirmed these complaints, finding that “about 34 percent of Ohio nursing homes had only a one-week supply of personal protective equipment for their workers.”

These findings reveal an on-going revelation of problems within American long-term care facilities. Since the beginning of the pandemic, “40 percent of all deaths in the U.S.” were residents of long-term care facilities.
