Nina Kohn, the David M. Levy Professor of Law and faculty director of online education in the College of Law, was quoted in The Denver Post story “False-negative tests let COVID-19 into rural Colorado hospital’s long-term care unit.” Kohn, an expert on elder law, believes that COVID 19 outbreaks in nursing homes could be avoided if there was more full-time staff not working at multiple facilities, which a common trend in the caregiving industry. Kohn says that “nursing homes are very susceptible to COVID-19,” but she does not believe that outbreaks of the virus should be seen as inevitable and instead they can be prevented.
