PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - A Plattsburgh nursing home says they have reached a major milestone.

According to Meadowbrook Healthcare, they have vaccinated 100% of their staff.

The assistant director of nursing is thanking their “dedicated team for always putting residents & patients FIRST!”

Like many nursing homes across the country, Meadowbrook over the past year has struggled to contain the spread of COVID-19 after staff members tested positive.

The facility last summer butted heads with state regulators over what they perceived as overly strict visitation policies.
