Officials say the wall will protect both residents and staff from exposure, and will also help preserve valuable, and sometimes difficult to obtain, personal protective equipment, which would normally have to be changed out after each test and potential exposure.Heritage is also developing a plan to effectively clean and disinfect each station after use with the help of their certified infection control nurse.“As we have been directed to move into mandated testing for all employees by Governor Cuomo’s office, we needed to determine how we could implement that efficiently, while complying with all regulations,” said Lisa Haglund, newly confirmed Heritage Ministries President and CEO. “At this difficult time in our industry, it is important that we work together to protect our most vulnerable population, our seniors.”“Working with our fellow senior living communities is essential in order to provide the absolute best care for all of our residents,” she furthered.Heritage Ministries was founded in 1886 and has grown from its original campus in Gerry, to six locations in New York with additional affiliations across the United States.last_img read more

Nickell Robey-Coleman says pass was tipped during controversial no-call play in Rams-Saints game

first_imgRobey-Coleman now claims “someone on the field said the ball was tipped,” according to The Athletic. A tipped pass would make pass interference inapplicable, ProFootballTalk notes. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman appears to be changing his stance on what happened during a controversial play involving Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis in the NFC championship game.Robey-Coleman was trying to stop Lewis from scoring a touchdown with the score tied at 20 and the ball in the red zone. Lewis was knocked down by Robey-Coleman and failed to catch the pass. Robey-Coleman appeared to make contact with Lewis before the ball arrived, but the referees did not call a penalty. The NFL later fined Robey-Coleman $26,739 for the hit. Just an FYI: I spoke to #Rams Nickell Robey-Coleman about this and he is adamant someone on the field said the ball was tipped. At the very least there is some compelling video showing that might have been the case.— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) January 26, 2019There is some video evidence that could prove Robey-Coleman’s case depending on the angle: Related News NFL playoffs 2019: Social media reacts to controversial no-call in final minutes of Saints-Rams matchup @slotgod23 👀👀— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) January 26, 2019The Saints ended up kicking a field goal and the Rams answered with one of their own to force overtime. Los Angeles went on to win 26-23 in overtime, though the play created a strong reaction from the NFL community. Saints coach Sean Payton said he spoke with someone in the league office who told him “they blew the call.”The Rams will face the Patriots in Super Bowl 53 on Feb. 3 with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m. ET.last_img read more
