Dead In Florida Nursing Home

Trump dismisses climate change question

Administrators have so far not responded to STAT's calls or emails regarding the criminal investigation or prior inspection records.

Residents at The Rehabilitation Center in Hollywood Hills fell ill after the air conditioning stopped working, reports the Miami Herald.

The temperature in Hollywood for Wednesday is expected to get up to 88 degrees with 74% humidity.

Neighbors said this was a family of five, including three minors.

In an online statement, Florida Gov. Rick Scott pledged to investigate through local law enforcement and state agencies. Robert Gould, the utility's chief communications officer, said he understood that certain parts of the facility had power.

Florida's largest utility, Florida Power & Light Co, said western parts of Florida might be without electricity until September 22. "Can't give you anything more specific than that at this point".

The storm destroyed about one-third of the buildings on the Dutch-governed portion of the eastern Caribbean island of St. Martin, the Dutch Red Cross said on Tuesday.

The rest of the center's patients were evacuated.

"We're certainly all very disappointed that something like this could've taken place", Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy told CNN. Randy Katz, medical director of emergency services. Rescue workers found a portable gasoline generator running inside the home. He also said investigators will look into how many windows were open in the nursing home.

Three others later died, and "at least another dozen patients" are being treated at nearby Memorial Regional Hospital, according to Dr.

The home is directly across from a hospital.

Late Wednesday afternoon, a second nursing home in South Florida evacuated 85 patients. Hollywood spokeswoman Raelin Story said there were "a number of critical patients".

Gould said the incident at Hollywood Hills emphasises that all facilities need to have backup plans in case power is lost during storms.

The hospital has set up a hotline, 954-265-1074, so that families of nursing home residents can check on their loved ones. Michel and other Larkin owners paid $15.4 million in 2006 to settle health care fraud claims filed against them by the U.S. Attorney's Office and the state of Florida.

Kerting Baldwin, a spokeswoman for Memorial Healthcare System, which runs four hospitals that received the evacuees, said staff were "assessing patients and tending to the health-care needs of the residents".

One of the issues facing the nursing homes was ensuring they have enough fuel on hand to power their generators on a continuous basis, she noted.
