Director of MDHHS Defends Michigan’s Handling of Nursing Home Residents During the Pandemic

The director of the state’s Department of Health and Human Services defended Michigan’s handling of nursing home residents during the pandemic.

MDHHS Director Robert Gordon says Michigan’s performance has been strong compared to other states.

He pointed out that just two states, Florida and Massachusetts, created facilities that house only COVID-19 patients.

Adding that those states have since abandoned those plans.

Republicans have criticized the state’s decision to let recovering patients remain in nursing homes, isolated from unaffected residents.
