New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday launched an attack on one of the critics of his nursing home policies – Assemblyman Ron Kim, who lost his uncle to COVID-19 in a nursing home. Cuomo says Kim’s disagreements over policies is really about an old feud over a bill to regulate nail salons.

Planning to introduce legislation on the issue, a New York congressman, state legislators and advocates launched a Fair Pay for Home Care campaign Tuesday. And there’s a report on the impact of raising wages for home-care workers, who are in high demand but deterred by low wages.

New York state lawmakers are pushing legislation to better protect nursing home residents. They say they’re hearing reports of residents not receiving proper care during the COVID-19 pandemic and poor communication with family members.
