The Council for Healthcare of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference on Nursing Care Homes has called for inquiries as to why the impact on nursing homes has been so severe during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Following is the group’s statement issued Saturday, May 30:
The Council for Healthcare of the Irish Episcopal Conference wishes to acknowledge the tremendous work of our doctors, nurses, administrators, chaplains, and ancillary staff in healthcare facilities across the country. Their tireless efforts have helped to curb the spread of COVID-19 and saved the lives of many people. Their dedication has been a source of inspiration and hope for all of us at this difficult time. We thank them sincerely and assure them of continuing support.
