Complaint seeks to preserve video, photos from nursing home where 8 died

Complaint seeks to preserve video, photos from nursing home where 8 died

Gov. Rick Scott's office released a statement Friday, saying the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills had not reported that conditions at its facility had become risky for patients.

A quarter of the state started the fourth day after Hurricane Irma without lights or air conditioning as energy companies worked to restore one of the largest power outages in the country's history. A deacon from her Roman Catholic church has also stopped by.

"That is a hard proposition", she said.

The electricity is out in her condo, so there's no television for news. Staff also "continually checked on residents' well-being" to ensure they were "hydrated and as comfortable as possible", Carballo said.

Near the point of despair, remembering to take her medicine or locating her cane are nearly insurmountable challenges. I never even knew a Category 5 existed.

"She says, 'Jean, I can't breathe". There are still ten million people suffering from power failures in the city of Florida, Georgia and Carolinas.

As recovery continues, President Donald Trump was due to visit Naples in southwestern Florida on Thursday.

Irma, which had ranked as one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record before striking the US mainland as a Category 4 hurricane, has been blamed for at least 31 deaths in Florida, plus seven more in Georgia and SC, combined.

The death toll from Irma stood at 81 on Thursday, including 38 in the United States, with several hard-hit Caribbean islands including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands accounting for more than half of the fatalities.

Workers at the facility said Hurricane Irma caused the air conditioning to fail Sunday and they struggled to keep residents cool with fans, cold towels and ice.

A spokesman for Scott's office, John Tupps, said "every call made to the governor from facility management was referred to the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Health and quickly returned".

By the afternoon, five more had died. Others were treated for dehydration, breathing difficulties and other heat-related problems.

Police in Hollywood, north of Miami, opened a criminal investigation on Wednesday after finding three dead patients at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hill, a facility that had been operating with little or no air conditioning. The chief said authorities have not ruled anything out in the deaths, including carbon monoxide poisoning from generators. Authorities performed safety checks on other facilities around the city Wednesday.

"We are disgusted and outraged at the clear neglect and lack of care for our most vulnerable at a Hollywood nursing home".

"I've been there sometimes when it didn't", she said. "But nobody from the facility has told me anything yet".

"The investigation into this tragedy (at the Broward County facility) and the circumstances that may have contributed to it continues, and it would be inappropriate to comment on details until it concludes", the association said.

The Florida Department of Health and the Agency for Health Care Administration addressed the timeline Friday, saying, "It is 100 percent the responsibility of health care professionals to preserve life by acting in the best interest of the health and well-being of their patients".

Lawmakers submitted legislation requiring generators at adult living facilities and nursing homes. County officials released documents showing that the Hollywood facility was in compliance with that regulation and that it held a hurricane drill with its staff in October.

The president tells reporters at the White House that "power is being turned on rapidly", and the state's leaders and emergency responders are doing an "amazing job" in helping the state respond to the massive storm.

"We love the people of Florida, and they went through something that I guess the likes of which we can say nobody has ever seen before", Trump said amid piles of debris and downed trees.
