The Senate Finance Committee held a hearing on nursing home operations during the coronavirus pandemic. In his opening statement Chair Ron Wyden (D-OR) said that 175,000 long-term care residents and workers died from COVID-19 in 2020. Nursing home workers, elderly care advocates, and public health experts testified about issues such as chronic under-staffing, under-funding, and a lack of personal protective equipment prior to COVID-19, which they said only worsened during the pandemic. The witnesses spoke about ways to address these shortages to prevent more deaths during future viral outbreaks. close
