Outgoing Manor head expects nurse 'exodus'

(Continued)

Meanwhile, the local development corporation is researching its options regarding whether the county’s Long Term Home Health Care Program will be included in the RFP.

Currently, the program services 71 patients who are provided with home care services where they reside.

Marchi said the future of long term home health care is in doubt because the state “is attempting to gut them.” Given the uncertainty, he said that “it’s a good idea to be flexible” when the request for proposals is crafted, so that potential bidders could be given an array of options, including ones that include the program and one’s that omit it.

The Manor Committee chairwoman, Rep. Katherine Stuligross, D-Oneonta, who is also a member of the LDC, said she would discuss the issue with the county’s consultants.
