Nursing Home Deaths on the Decline

Dr. Ron Hershow, professor of epidemiology, was interviewed by Chicago Public Radio (WBEZ) on the declining proportion of nursing home deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Hershow noted nursing home practices have generally improved over time.

The broad-scale rollout of periodic [COVID-19] testing in these facilities has been probably the top of the list of important interventions.
