State inspectors investigate the Bronx nursing home after Post's exposure

The state health inspector descended on the Hebrew House in Riverdale and tested the population for the corona virus after The Post reported that the house had more deaths than the official state.

The inspection team also reviewed the records of every patient who died at home since the coronavirus pandemic began.

Deaths soared at home with 751 beds in March and April to 119 when the pandemic peaked. But the Hebrew Home reported to the country only 18 deaths due to the corona virus at the facility on May 14, which led insiders to say it was a secret.

The investigation began right after Governor Cuomo reversed his controversial policy requiring nursing homes to take COVID positive patients19 from hospitals. The Hebrew House set up a 22-bed ward for discharged hospital patients.

CEO Daniel Reingold did not dispute the total number of deaths in the News 12 interview, but blamed them on patients who were weak due to a rough flu season and a previous outbreak of norovirus, a stomach ailment. The house claims to have been transparent in reporting deaths to the country.

But two insiders told The Post that the house barely tested residents for the virus, saying that it would not change treatment plans. The lack of results will allow it to claim the population did not die because of COVID-19.

A spokesman said the house followed the CDC testing guidelines, but acknowledged there was a shortage of test kits “from the start.”

The family told The Post that when their loved ones got sick, they asked for a coronavirus test and were refused.

“They called us and said,” Your mother is sick, she has a fever. It could be a corona virus, ‘”Russell Freeman remembers, saying staff later claimed,” We can’t test it because we don’t have a test. “

He died five days after the phone call. Her 75-year-old mother, Susan Charton-Kaplan, suffers from dementia but is declared healthy. The grandmother of four is a social worker who spent her career working with seniors.

Freeman was allowed to make an end of life visit and was shocked by the lack of preventative measures.

“I hope the rooms are closed in a certain way, but they don’t do anything,” he said.

The April 19th Charton-Kaplan death certificate says he died of natural causes. Freeman said he was told that the house could not conduct post-mortem testing.

He called the new DOH testing of patients in the Hebrew House “too little too late.”

Rob Stone said his 96-year-old father suddenly had breathing problems and died three days later on April 23.

He said the house refused to do a coronavirus test while his father was still alive, or after he died. But he said he said he had no doubt the cause of death was COVID-19.

“We celebrated my 96th father in January and his health was very good … Now as a result of the poor evaluation of the Hebrew House, lack of testing and proper precautions, we buried him,” Stone said.

Pedro Pichardo: "I would like to be the best Portuguese athlete of all time" - Atletismo

Olympic triple jump champion Pedro Pablo Pichardo of Portugal said this Thursday that he could break the world record of 18.29 meters this year and even surpass the biggest jump with wind by 18.43 meters.

An Olympic and European champion, but with a daunting simplicity and ambition, the Cuban-born Portuguese was the guest of the first of a series of conferences organized by the Setubal City Council, in the restored Forte de Albarquel, in which, in addition to showing that he intends to set a “triple” world record , and also wants to become “the most medal-winning Portuguese athlete ever”.

“Obviously it’s never easy to break a record, but I’m just talking about the parameters that I achieve in training. I think I should be able to do it. [bater o recorde do mundo do triplo salto] this year,” said Pedro Pablo Pichardo at the Olympic Gold – Travel Story conference.

Perhaps the achievements of Pedro Pablo Pichardo do not stop there, because the athlete demonstrates unshakable confidence and the desire to win many more medals for the country that welcomed him.

“I would like to become the best Portuguese athlete ever. I don’t want anyone to get upset. Obviously, I respect all athletes who are always working to be the best. Personally, I work to be the best athlete in history. “, – he said.

Pichardo admits that he has “learned a bit about the history of Portuguese sports, obviously athletics” and says he knows that Fernanda Ribeiro is the most medalist with 12 medals.

The Benfica athlete, who lives and trains in Setúbal, considers it “an honor to be part of Portuguese sport” and to have his name next to other gold medalists in a designated area for them in Jamora, where he began training in 2017.

“Every time I looked there, I said to my father: “One day I would like to be there too,” admitted Pedro Pablo Pichardo, who spent about an hour talking to RTP and Antena 1 journalist Paulo Sergio in front of dozens of guests.

To achieve the goal of becoming the most medal-winning Portuguese ever, Pichardo wants to win this year’s indoor (Serbia) and outdoor (USA) and European outdoor (Germany) titles, convinced that he is able to achieve these goals as long as his health or some kind of injury does not give him away.

At a conference in Forte de Albarquel, the new Portuguese Olympic champion also revealed that during his big triumph in Tokyo, his first thought was of his parents.

“I thought about my dad and mom because we went through a lot to get here. Obviously these days I jump by myself because I like to jump, but one of the things that I like the most is when I jump is to win so that my father and mother are happy. Because they did a lot for me to become who I am now,” he said.

Professor UMinho leads a Portuguese engineering consortium

Consortium of Schools of Engineering (CEE), bringing together colleagues from the Universities of Minho (EEUM), Porto (FEUP), Aveiro (UA), Coimbra (FCTUC), Lisbon (Técnico-UL) and Nova de Lisbon (FCT). Nova) – in the 2022/24 biennium, the executive leadership of Pedro Areces, President of the EEUM, will be exercised. The person in charge replaces the FEUP colleague, Joao Falcao and Cunha.
