Six Dead At Florida Nursing Home After Irma Knocks Out Power

Six Dead At Florida Nursing Home After Irma Knocks Out Power

Florida has about 680 nursing homes providing shelter to around 73, 000 residents and out of them, around 150 facilities are now devoid of full power supply.

Across Florida and nearby states, some 5 million homes and businesses were without power on Wednesday, down from a peak of 7.8 million on Monday.

Mayor Josh Levy told CNN, "Unfortunately, emergency services were called obviously too late".

"There's no reason patients that age with chronic medical issues should be in a facility without air conditioning", Katz said.

Hurricane Irma and its aftermath resulted in one North Carolina death, members of Gov. Roy Cooper's office said in a news release.

"Millions are still without power across the southeastern United States as recovery efforts continue". "I am outraged over the deaths of eight Floridians at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Broward County and I am demanding answers as we furiously investigate this awful loss of life", Scott said in a statement on Saturday. Dozens of hospital workers prepared a command center outside the building and gave red wristbands to patients with critical, life-threatening conditions and yellow and green ones to those who were in better conditions.

More calls to the governor's cell phone were made, according to the nursing home.

Jack Michel, the sole person listed on the nursing home's corporate registration in Florida, appears to have been accused of fraudulent activity in the past.

Franco said he visited his 92-year-old father, Miguel Franco, and his mother at the nursing home the previous week.

Four victims died after being evacuated to Memorial Healthcare System facilities, city officials said.

Some were brought to Memorial Regional Hospital, just across the street from the nursing center, and were treated for for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat-related issues, said Dr.

Categorised as one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record when it rampaged through the Caribbean, Irma killed more than 60 people, officials said.

SC governor Henry McMaster on Tuesday lifted an evacuation order that had been in effect on the barrier islands in the southern part of the state. "And as of earlier today, I think the number was still in the 30s that still don't have power in Florida". "Portable A/C units were being used in the facility, but the facility was excessively hot", the statement said.

At a news conference, Florida Power & Light, the state's largest utility, said it serviced portions of the care facility. At least one person could be seen in the video working to restore a home amid the wreckage.

As a precautionary measure, police checked 42 more nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the city of Hollywood, Sanchez said.

Key points of the nursing-home's account are contradicted by law enforcement and state officials, the Washington Post reported, including how aggressively the staff sought assistance and precisely when staffers called 911 as a patient went into cardiac arrest.

Its highest storm surge, 10 feet (2.5 meters) was on Florida's southwestern coast and caused some of the worst flooding in northeast Florida, Georgia and SC.
