NY POST: Nursing homes have â€˜no rightâ€™ to reject coronavirus patients, Cuomo says

New Yorkâ€™s nursing homes werenâ€™t allowed to challenge a controversial order to admit patients with the coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday â€” even though itâ€™s been blamed for spreading the deadly disease among residents.
â€œThey donâ€™t have a right to object. That is the rule and that is the regulation and they have to comply with that,â€ Cuomo said during his daily briefing in Albany.
â€œAnd the regulation is common sense: if you canâ€™t provide adequate care, you canâ€™t have the patient in your facility and thatâ€™s your basic fiduciary obligation â€” I would say, ethical obligation â€” and itâ€™s also your legal obligation.â€
Cuomo said that if a nursing home canâ€™t properly quarantine and treat COVID-19 patients with separate staffers, itâ€™s required to move them to another facility or ask the state Department of Health to arrange a transfer.
