On March 29, 2020, AMDA and AHCA/NCAL published a memo discussing the importance of dealing with surge management and conflicting guidelines and public policy around hospital-to-nursing home or hospital-to-assisted living community transfers. Of deep concern was the recent New York State order which states:
“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or re-admission”.
