We all hope that Massachusetts COVID-19 illness statistics will start to drop over the next few weeks. It is difficult to imagine what others are going through as we face our own sense of loss over these weeks. But what makes us human is appreciating that for others the experience may be more than they can handle.
The Arc is pleased with revisions made in the Commonwealth’s Crisis Standards of Care released on April 20. But we still need to work together to address accommodations further with hospitals and/or a limited advisory as in NYS, which focuses on support during hospitalization. The Disability Law Center is coordinating a further effort on this issue.
