covid-19 pandemic highlights
U.S. nursing home residents, totaling 1.2 million seniors and nonelderly people with disabilities living in over 15,000 facilities, are at increased risk of coronavirus infection and complications. The combined challenges of the facility setting and shared living environment, residents with underlying health conditions, the close contact that many care workers have with residents, and failures in facilities who do not provide quality care, all contribute to the high number of COVID-19 cases and outbreaks in the elder communities.

According to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), as of August 7, 20202:

  • More than 25,000 cases of COVID-19 have been traced back to nursing home residents and staff, resulting in 4,162 deaths.

On May 28, 2020, the Daily Chronicle posted an article detailing the COVID-19 outbreak at Pine Acres Rehab & Living Center, describing numerous failures in the facility’s fight against the virus and preventing its transmission. The article explains the lack of information being shared by the community to family members who are extremely concerned for the well-being of their loved ones who are residents in the facility. Numerous attempts to receive updates or any kind of information about how the facility has been dealing with the virus outbreak have been met with silence on the part of Pine Acres. The article further cites a report from the Illinois Department of Public Health which stated Pine Acres had not performed the necessary testing on residents until 12 days after it was discovered an employee of the facility had contracted the virus. This inability on the part of the facility to sufficiently test residents demonstrates a major failure on its part in combating the virus outbreak and further preventing its transmission within Pine Acres.
