Detroit Psych Hospital Insiders Raise COVID-19 Concerns


From WXYZ News: “At the same time state health officials were urging people not to gather in groups, staff say group therapy inside the hospital continued as normal.

‘Group therapy was being done in a medium-sized room with upwards of 15 patients and a group therapy facilitator,’ said a third StoneCrest employee. ‘Social distancing was not being practiced in that group. Patients were sitting at a table, right next to each

It wasn’t until this week, according to insiders, that group therapy sizes were made smaller and social distancing was put into practice. Still, staff say they continue to work in close contact with patients, but don’t have all the personal protection equipment they need like N95 or surgical masks. Only cloth masks are being used today, staff say.”
