Just as it has an effect on the prevalence of bedsores, nursing home neglect can also play a part in worsening nursing home coronavirus cases and deaths. Nursing homes have become COVID-19 hotspots because of the quality of care provided, the average age of residents, the lack of advocates due to lockdowns, and the lack of tests and other supplies.
