Here, on the Wayback Machine website, is the controversial directive to the nursing homes from the New York State Department of Health.
It calls itself an "advisory" but it gives very stern orders starting, "No resident shall be denied..." and "NHs are prohibited from...". So what exactly is this document? Is it an advisory, a memo, a directive, a direct order, or something else?
Also, who exactly is it from? I don't see any signature. Is it really from Andrew Cuomo, or is he taking responsibility for it just because it happened on his watch, like the president of United States might be expected to do?
