Specific themes are how well the institutions were prepared for the crisis by authorities, the quality of communications within institutions and with service users and family members, the availability of personal protective equipment and challenges to the delivery of care, and the impact of the risk of infection and protective measures on staff and residents. The survey results are presented in four thematic sections through the lens of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
