Recap: Tackling COVID and a Broken System

In this recap, Mary and Marla examine the 13 th episode of Elevate Eldercare with David Grabowski, PhD, professor of health policy at Harvard Medical School.

With the focus of Dr. Grabowski’s discussion with Susan Ryan on COVID-19 and the impact it has had on nursing homes, Mary and Marla discuss the surprising results of one of his recent studies, the devaluation of long-term care staff, and solving the problem of social isolation among nursing home elders.
