FOX NEWS — “This is an experience of a lifetime,” said Dr. Robin Armstrong. “This is something we will probably never experience again.”
Dr. Armstrong and others at the Resort at Texas City Nursing home knew time wasn’t on their side.
“Two of our residents had symptoms and that’s when we tested everybody,” said nursing home Executive Director Jan Piveral.
56 residents and 33 staff members were COVID-19 positive.
“Our Goal was to make sure we could shelter them in place so we don’t spread it to other people,” Armstrong said. “Then also at the same time treat them so they would get better.”
Armstrong says he knew residents who ended up in the hospital had a higher mortality rate.
“Our goal was to keep them here and treat them with the medications we had available,” he said.
