Relatives Of People Who Died From Covid In Nursing Homes Call On Taoiseach To Listen Personally To Their Concerns
Relatives of people who died from Covid in nursing homes are calling on the Taoiseach to listen personally to their concerns.
The group, Care Champions, says many of their families feel they can’t share their stories in public because of fears of legal action.
Spokesperson Majella Beattie, says she wants Micheál Martin to intervene to get answers:
“Families feel that they cannot move on, that they can’t even start the grieving process until they know the facts, until they know what actually happened. You know, were they given pain relief, was there somebody there to turn them, did they get fluids or water? And you know, COVID has really turned the people who have passed away into numbers. And the people who died in nursing homes were not numbers.”
