5 dead after AC issue that forced evacuation of Hollywood nursing home

Numerous death tolls from Irma's fallout vary, but officials say dozens in the United States and Caribbean have been killed by the storm. "We all have elderly people in facilities, and we all know we depend on those people in those facilities to care for a vulnerable elderly population".

"I am demanding answers", he tweeted.

An announcement from the nursing home, the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, affirmed that it had a "delayed power inability to the transformer which fueled the office's aerating and cooling framework because of the tropical storm".

"The suspicion is that these deaths should not have occurred", NPR's Jon Hamilton reports from the scene.

In Florida, nursing homes are regulated by the Agency for Healthcare Administration.

The hospital has set up a hotline, 954-265-1074, so that families of nursing home residents can check on their loved ones. In both instances, the nursing home corrected these deficiencies.

In 1997, before Michel owned Larkin, federal prosecutors say he was part of a kickback scheme that involved paying doctors for referrals and admission to Larkin Community Hospital. I believe that it and any other facility that has previously put patients at risk should have been on a list of sites to watch to ensure that patients are receiving the care they need.

The case was settled in 2006 for $15.4 million.

Almost 2.7 million homes and businesses - about one in four buildings - are still without power in Florida.

Hollywood police have opened a criminal investigation into the deaths of six people at a nursing home that lost power when Hurricane Irma moved through. These surges contribute to the destruction of homes as well as the increasing death tolls in Florida and the Caribbean. "Right now, tens of thousands of people across our state are working day and night to get power restored and in three days, more than 65 percent of all outages have been restored". In Palm Beach County, carbon monoxide from a generator seeped into a home, killing a woman and leaving three men in critical condition.

In Lee County, which includes Cape Coral and Fort Myers, the Florida Emergency Management Agency said 66 percent of the area's 290,000 electrical customers were still without power Wednesday. A real disaster, much work to do!

"When you think of the incredible power of that storm, and while people unfortunately passed, it was such a small number", Mr Trump said.

Search and rescue operations continued in the Keys and Southwest Florida.

The electricity is out in her condo, so there's no television for news. Carvelli said the staff got him and his brother on a conference call to go over the medications and care for her Alzeimer's.

Damage assessment continues in the Florida Keys, where engineers are determining if bridges can handle the weight of returning vehicles.

Yet when a reporter asked Trump on Thursday whether the two hurricanes, which were aided by warming ocean and air temperatures, as well as added moisture in the air, have caused him to reevaluate his views on climate change, Trump directly contradicted himself.
