Albany Co. nursing home vote delayed

Posted:

ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. -- The county legislature was expected to make its final vote Monday on leasing the Albany County Nursing Home to a private vendor, but that plan has been stalled.

Instead the proposal has gone back to the committee level so they can look at the pros and cons to both sides of the argument. Some worry that privatizing the nursing home will compromise care, but County Executive Dan Mccoy says the county can no longer afford to maintain the home.

He says they lose a million tax payer dollars every month they operate the facility.
