Dead After Evacuation of Hollywood Nursing Home Left Without Power After Irma

Dead After Evacuation of Hollywood Nursing Home Left Without Power After Irma

Five people in Hollywood, Fla., nursing home died after the facility lost air conditioning to Hurricane Irma's destruction, according to Florida's Sun Sentinel.

In 1997, before Michel owned Larkin, federal prosecutors say he and others participated in a kickback scheme that involved paying doctors for referrals and admission to Larkin Community Hospital. "Memorial Regional Hospital, where many residents were taken, was in the top tier". The hospital never reported losing power during the storm. A spokesperson for the Memorial Hospital system said the nursing home is not part of the hospital chain.

Back in Hollywood with so many questions still unanswered, this nursing home is another place where Irma's impact will continue to be felt as recovery efforts continue in the sunshine state. I mean nursing homes are supposed to have backup power and generators and have an emergency plan where they think about events like this.

Gov. Scott said Wednesday he was "absolutely heartbroken" to learn of the "unfathomable" deaths at the retirement facility and promised to "aggressively demand answers".

Gillum said he found the incident disturbing and also called for a second look into the deaths.

Flora Mitchell, a 61-year-old Hollywood resident, came down to the center to find her sister around noon Wednesday.

"I have nobody", she said.

For much of the morning, Mitchell anxious her sister was among the deceased.

I don't know what happened inside. "Nobody's telling us nothing".

Residents struggling to put their lives back together have fallen victim to new hazards, including oppressive heat, brush-clearing accidents, house fires and deadly fumes from generators.

Administrator Jorge Carballo said that the SNF is fully cooperating with authorities and described the situation as "unfortunate and tragic", according to the Miami Herald. "Our hearts go out to the families and friends of those who were affected".

The nursing home contacted Florida Power & Light to report the problem, then set up eight portable air coolers throughout the facility, and placed fans in the hallways. There are about 40 other SNFs and assisted living facilities in Hollywood, and all of them were being checked for safe conditions on Wednesday, NPR reported.

Recovering from Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys is a struggle with no power, no water and no stable communication.

"Our centers' first priority is always the safety and well-being of every resident in their care and they are doing everything in their power to meet their immediate and ongoing needs", wrote the association's executive director, Kristen Knapp.

"Millions are still without power across the southeastern USA as recovery efforts continue". A total of nearly 4.5 million Florida Power & Light customers have been affected by the storm, with about 1 million getting service restored, mostly by automated devices. In both those cases, the facility did correct those issues, CNN said.

Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said three were found dead at the nursing home in the city of Hollywood.

On Wednesday night, the healthcare administration halted new admissions to the rehab center, which had a history of poor inspections by state regulators.
