The centre referred to the Deputy is a private nursing home registered with the Health and Information and Quality Authority. While at present the HSE is providing unprecedented supports to private nursing homes, including relevant clinical and infection prevention and control advice, funding, access to PPE and where necessary, staffing support, the future of this or any private nursing home is a matter for the registered provider in the first instance.  I have asked the HSE to update the Deputy in relation to its recent interaction with the nursing home in question.
