The rapid actions and precautions of former-President Donald Trump’s Veterans Administration saved countless lives in VA nursing homes around the nation. A recent study reveals that residents of VA nursing care facilities, referred to as “Community Living Centers (CLC),” owned and operated by the Veterans Administration, have a lower death rate than non-VA nursing residences. Why is that the case? One reason is, as Jeff Charles reported in Liberty Nation:

“New York Attorney General Letitia James published a document on Thursday claiming the state’s Department of Health underreported COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes by as much as 50%. The study comes after the controversy regarding New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to compel nursing homes to take on elderly patients infected with the virus, which resulted in a significant number of fatalities.”

This level of mortality was not true with VA’s COVID care, as Patricia Kime told us in her February 2021 piece for “COVID-19 Death Rate at VA Nursing Homes is 13 Times Lower Than National Average.,” she wrote. The death rate in VA CLCs is 0.5% compared with the 6.5% mortality rate found in one-third of the Americans testing positive among the 1.4 million living in nursing homes. Achieving the low infection and death rate was not easy and caused considerable sacrifice for CLC residents and families.
