Dr. Rachael Levine now Ass’t Sec of Health, COVID Nursing Home deaths, & DOJ – the intersect

While New York has been in the news regarding the DOJ dropping the investigation into Nursing Homes Covid deaths, little time has been given to the other democrat controlled states who also had the bright idea of putting COVID positive patients there as well. New York and Michigan got the good news last week that they were off the DOJ hook, and now we hear that Pennsylvania too got the news. Across the country, tens of thousands of COVID-19 patients were accepted by nursing homes, more than 250,000 in the 12 months through March 1, according to federal data.

In Pennsylvania, about 65% of coronavirus deaths were nursing-home residents, and in counties in the hardest hit southeastern part of the state, long-term care residents account for as much as 80% of county deaths. New Jersey had 3,200 residents of long-term care homes die due to complications from the virus, about 40% of the statewide total. About 58% of the deaths in Delaware lived in nursing homes, and 46% of the fatalities in Maryland were at nursing homes, prompting Gov. Larry Hogan to order residents and staff members at nursing homes be tested for coronavirus.

I have an idea of one good reason why the investigation was dropped.

Let’s connect a few dots:

Enter Dr. Rachael Levine, former Pennsylvania Secretary of Health. She/he is particularly loathsome. Not only did she send sick patients into nursing homes, just as the news broke in March, she moved her mother out of one and into a hotel. Think that was bad? She got rewarded by joining Biden’s administration. Now she could protect herself and her fellow Democrat States by keeping an eye on the investigation if there were to be one. Better yet, protect herself and others in her position. Her job now?Joe Biden’s assistant secretary of health.

 

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Justice Department told Gov. Tom Wolf’s office on Thursday that it has decided not to open an investigation into whether Pennsylvania violated federal law by ordering nursing homes to accept residents who had been treated for COVID-19 in a hospital.

Let’s take a look at how absurd this whole thing is.

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Moves Mother to Hotel – Tom Wolf, Rachel Levine Hypocrites?

Pennsylvania made nursing homes accept COVID-19 patients, but health secretary’s mom was moved to hotel. Even as coronavirus patients were being funneled into state nursing homes, the state’s Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine, removed her mother from one of those facilities, lodging her instead in a hotel. She claims it was “personal care” – either way, it was “congregate living” no matter what she pleads.

Levine will become the first openly transgender federal official if confirmed by the Senate.

“Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond,” Biden said in a statement on her nomination. “She is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.”

The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Unhinged PA Gov Wolf and Sec of Health Levine Devastate Nursing Homes

It gets even better this week. Not content that Nursing homes and hospitals are up to their eyeballs taking care of sick patients, she will have them go through all of the medical records and try and figure out if they are LGBTQ … add how many additional letters you need. Go figure. Priorities my dear… will some one tell her/him? For what purpose Dr. Levine? How happy should the LGBT community be that she is having people tracing their contacts? Going through their medical records?

Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) office this week announced that the state’s health department, under transgender Health Secretary Rachel Levine, is focusing on gender identity and sexual orientation or expression in the state’s collection of coronavirus data.

American Spectator:

May 29, 2020

Note what is alleged: On March 29, Pennsylvania joined New York and other northeastern states in “ordering nursing homes to admit medically stable residents infected with the coronavirus,” despite warnings from groups like the American Health Care Association that such “health directives” could “unnecessarily cost more lives.”

These intrepid government officials should have heeded something known as common sense. Who but a fool would move infected COVID-19 patients into nursing homes? What was option two, moving them into Walmarts?

 

The article continued, “The death toll is devastating, according to interviews with nursing-home officials, patients’ families, health-care advocates, government officials and from an examination of state records … across the Northeast.” And yet, among the plagued northeast, the infection rate in nursing homes is uniquely bad in Pennsylvania.

…..

That possibility is getting major attention across the state. A devastating investigative piece was published in the Bucks County Courier Times (jointly done with reporters from USA Today), a county with a huge number of COVID-19 cases (the vast majority of Pennsylvania’s cases are in eastern counties close to New York and New Jersey). Titled, “States ordered nursing homes to take COVID-19 residents — Thousands Died,” it documents the disproportionate deaths in Pennsylvania nursing homes

Biden’s HHS Trans Doctor pick supports sex change for kids and puberty blockers

 

Remember when the Twilight zone was just a show on TV? Rand Paul nails down this candidate for Biden’s latest pick for weirdos to fill out his cabinet. This one is a doozy. Later the  background on this guy/gal who thinks it’s apparently great for kids to mutilate their bodies without parents knowledge.

Rand Paul puts Rachel’s feet to the fire with his well laid out question.

Biden nominee refuses to answer the question about whether the government should override a parent’s consent to allow a minor to receive puberty blockers or surgical amputation of breasts or genitalia.

“You’re willing to let a minor take things to prevent their puberty, and you think they get back?… You have permanently changed them… There’s no long term studies. We don’t know what happens to them.”

Charlie Kirk:

Joe Biden is pushing Rachel Levine through the Senate to be second-in-command at the Department of Health & Human Services. Rachel is a biological male who supports sex change surgeries & life altering hormone treatments for children. Is this what ‘healing the nation’ looks like?

 

 

That was not the only question of her that should be a headliner:

Levine questioned on missing Pa. nursing home data in …

Penn Live

HARRISBURG — During a federal confirmation hearing Thursday, former Health Secretary Rachel Levine was questioned about the ongoing data discrepancies in Pennsylvania’s public reports on nursing home coronavirus deaths and cases.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) said Levine had assured her that Pennsylvania had accurately reported deaths in these homes, unlike New York, where the attorney general found that the Cuomo administration had undercounted fatalities by the thousands.

But Collins questioned that claim, citing Spotlight PA reporting from September 2020 that found weekly reports released by the state health department were consistently missing death and case data for more than 100 of the state’s 693 nursing homes.
……

By September, more than six months since the first COVID-19 case in Pennsylvania, problems with the data had not been corrected. With many facilities still closed to visitors, advocates for nursing home residents and families said that there were few ways for families to know what was going on inside facilities and to monitor outbreaks.

Data related to a deadly outbreak at one Lehigh County facility was not included in the reports until August — after 80 residents had died, one of the highest death tolls in a nursing home in the state.
Those of us who live in Pennsylvania know all about Dr.Rachel Levine. Unfortunately we don’t have a weather girl” like Janice Dean.

The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.

The guidance stated:

Nursing care facilities must continue to accept new admissions and receive readmissions for current residents who have been discharged from the hospital who are stable to alleviate the increasing burden in the acute care settings. This may include stable patients who have had the COVID-19 virus.

Nearly 70 percent of the state’s coronavirus-related deaths — 2,896 of 4,218 — are connected to nursing home facilities.

It was revealed this week that Levine removed his 95-year-old mother from such a facility during the pandemic.

PA transgendered Sec of Health focusing on LGBT, Trannny on COVID data collection

 

 

Dr. Richard/Rachael Levine, transgendered Health Secretary strikes again in Pennsylvania. Last week I posted how she/he had forced nursing homes to take COVID patients.

The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Go figure. Priorities my dear… will some one tell her/him? For what purpose Dr. Levine? How happy should the LGBT community be that she is having people tracing their contacts? Going through their medical records?

Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) office this week announced that the state’s health department, under transgender Health Secretary Rachel Levine, is focusing on gender identity and sexual orientation or expression in the state’s collection of coronavirus data.

“Governor Tom Wolf today took another step in his commitment to fair treatment and inclusion of LGBTQ Pennsylvanians by announcing ways the community will be counted in COVID-19 data,” his office announced on Wednesday.

 

According to the announcement, the Department of Health “will be conducting extensive case histories investigations as part of contact tracing on those who test positive for the virus” as individual counties begin moving from the red phase to yellow. As a result, the department will work with Sara Alert, described as a “new data collection platform,” and has requested a “system modification to the platform to collect sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data”:

The department has also requested from the eHealth Authority Board that the state’s six health information organizations work to capture sexual orientation and gender identity or expression data from electronic health records that can then be used by health care providers to report their COVID-19 data to the department.

The release also touts the Wolf administration’s commitment to working with organizations that are devoted to “non-discriminatory practices.”

Sound improves when she answers the questions.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) announced that he is opening criminal investigations into several nursing homes, as coronavirus deaths in care facilities soar. All the while, Wolf’s administration is, perplexingly, placing a special emphasis on gender identity and sexual orientation or expression in the state’s collection of coronavirus data.

According to the state’s health department data, 12,677 nursing home or personal care facility residents have tested positive for the coronavirus, and 2,896 have died as a result.

Roughly 1.8 million Pennsylvanians have filed jobless claims since the start of the pandemic.
