State to study COVID-19 long-term care facility deaths

The Michigan Auditor General will study reported and unreported deaths in long-term care facilities after thousands of residents died of the coronavirus in skilled nursing sites since the start of the pandemic.

Rep. Steve Johnson, R-Wayland, posted a June 30 letter on his Facebook page from Auditor General Doug Ringler, who indicated that the office received Johnson’s June 10 request for a comprehensive study of the deaths and “we intend to act upon your request.”

Ringer said various departments’ databases will be used for the work; and he set a preliminary completion estimate of late September to mid-October, according to the letter. It states the results are to be reported in a question and answer format.
