Every great law blog should start with a profound quote. “Children are born innocent. Before they are domesticated they in the moment, love without fear, and don’t even think about the opinions of others.” – Miguel Angel Ruiz. This quote describes the natural state of children before nurture and nature take hold. They have no concept of violence, destruction, or other behaviors that interfere with societal harmony.

Legal Protections of Nursing Homes

As we all know, the Coronavirus is much more dangerous and lethal to the elderly and those with chronic health conditions and this same population of people are the ones that make up the vast majority of patients in our nursing homes. One would think that this would mean that nursing homes, the care that they, and the health and safety protocols they put in place to protect their high-risk patients would be held to the highest of standards. You would also expect that if a nursing home did not have proper protocols in place or if staff flagrantly disregarded those protocols and caused a loved one to get sick or pass away, that they could be punished and held accountable.

However, this has not been the case. In April of last year, emergency protections were put into place that protected nursing homes and hospitals from any lawsuits regarding any injuries or deaths from COVID-19. But this will change soon. Governor Ned Lamont has decided to take away the legal immunity that has protected nursing homes starting on March 1st.

They will finally be able to be held accountable. Is it enough? Or with the virus seemingly coming to an end with the vaccines rolling out, has the damage already been done? Is it too little, too late? Let us know what you think.
