In the Spring of 2020, the Whitmer Administration developed COVID-19 nursing hubs—21 nursing homes equipped to serve COVID-19 patients transferred from other Michigan nursing homes or hospitals. CHRT shares its analysis of the policy. The analysis finds that deaths in nursing home hubs were lower (17.4%) compared to deaths in non nursing home hubs (26%). It also finds that nursing home deaths in Michigan were slightly lower than the national average. While CHRT recommends maintaining the hub strategy, it recommends a series of strategies to improve the hubs, including improving data tracking and providing additional support for nursing home staff.
