    Spanish soldiers find bodies in Madrid retirement homes

    "The army, during certain visits, found some old people completely abandoned, sometimes even dead in their beds," she added.

    An investigation has been launched, the general prosecutor announced.

    Another 514 people have died in Spain over the past 24 hours, raising the death toll to 2,696.

    The government said the number of infections has surged towards 40,000, rising by nearly 20% to 39,673.

    "Under coronavirus protocols, health workers have been instructed to leave bodies in place in suspected Covid-19 deaths until the arrival of a doctor. But given the upsurge in deaths the delay can be lengthy."

    The system is completely overwhelmed.

    Ok, so what does that have to do with en masse job abandonment by nursing home staff?

    You ever been put in a situation where you feel completely helpless and hopeless? Until you have...I might suggest you save your 'judgement' of others.

    I know of health care providers and social workers that work in retirement homes that have breakdowns over the losses on a GOOD day. I can only imagine what they are experiencing in Spain and Italy. I also know pretty much less than nothing about the circumstances in those retirement homes in Spain because there are no details in the actual story.

    I wouldn’t choose a career in which I’m responsible for the health and well-being of others if I didn’t think I could handle it. These people are murderers and I hope Spain tracks them down and locks them up for life.

    Spoken like someone that is truly clueless.

    You should rush right out and join the fray. Show them how its done.

    Burnout is a very real thing. Elder Caregivers are some of the most amazing and dedicated people you will ever know. Burnout is a very real problem in the field as it is in most of the helping fields. Spains death toll is so great that the have had to use converted skating rinks as a field morgue. And again...you literally know less than dick about the situation there.

    You are wasting your time if you think you can convince anyone that abandoning their patients and without telling anyone for the army to find them dead and dying alone is anything less than criminal.

    Oh I get that it is a waste of time trying to get people to think outside of their pathetic little boxes they have created by reading a headline from a news article that you know literally less than dick about. I also get that it is a total waste of time to try to get people that have no idea what other peoples experiences might be like to see things through anything other than their own bigotry and ignorance.

    Believe it or not, my responses posted on this site arent meant for you. Because I get that its a waste of time talking to you.
