Nursing Homes Prepare for Surge

As COVID-19 cases begin to rise again, Maryland nursing homes prepare for the surge with experience and PPE by their sides. In preparation, nursing homes are “stockpiling more personal protective equipment, creating stricter guidance around visitations, and making sure residents are among the first to receive a vaccine.”

It is planned that the vaccine should soon be available to nursing home staff and residents through a partnership between the National Healthcare Safety Network, Walgreens, and CVS. As of now, long-term care facilities are testing weekly, keeping visitations outside, and supplying 30-days worth of PPE. Since the onset of COVID-19, Maryland nursing homes have accounted for 56% of the state COVID-19 deaths.
