Death At Florida Nursing Home Without Electric City After Hurricane Irma

Death At Florida Nursing Home Without Electric City After Hurricane Irma

An emergency cellphone assigned to the office of Florida Gov. Rick Scott was called by nursing home officials at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills asking for assistance, the governor's office confirmed to ABC News Friday.

"We're conducting a criminal investigation into the deaths that occurred here", Sanchez said.

Three of those who died were in their nineties, including 99-year-old Albertina Vega.

A nursing home employee told NBC Miami that the building was cool on Tuesday but that he returned Wednesday morning to an overheated facility. "But between 1:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. Wednesday, 'several residents suffered respiratory arrest or cardiac distress, ' the complaint said".

Friends and relatives of the patients rushed to the nursing home Wednesday after learning that eight people had died.

The chief said 115 people were evacuated from the nursing home.

"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.

As for the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, there appears in the database to be a gap of almost two days between the times the facility updated its status with the state Health STAT system.

The thing is, as of yesterday, it was reporting that everything was OK, that they were using portable air conditioners and fans.

Reached by phone on Thursday, Rosemary Cooper, a licensed practical nurse at the rehabilitation center, declined to discuss specifics about the case, citing the investigation.

Jeff Nova, whose 71-year-old mother Gail Nova was among the deceased, said he didn't have any information about what happened.

"I don't know if my sister is living", Mitchell said. Owner Ralph Marrinson said all five of his Florida facilities lost electricity after Irma.

Many Floridians now face a new batch of safety threats, even days after Hurricane Irma pummeled the peninsula with powerful winds - churning up neighborhoods and leaving millions without electricity.

Statewide, 64 nursing homes were still waiting Thursday for full power, according to the Florida Health Care Association.

Hurricane Irma's furious march through Florida not only darkened millions of homes, it also flooded roads and piled them with debris, blocking off access to neighborhoods.

The deaths are now the subject of a criminal investigation.

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.

"What we've seen is something extremely tragic", Mr. Gould said. Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said government officials had requested that power companies prioritise senior citizen communities before the hurricane hit.

One of the nursing homes also did not have AC and the patients were removed from the facility.

"We work with them to understand what those facilities are, and then we address those facilities initially", Mr. Gould said, regarding meetings with counties.

Three elderly residents were found dead on Wednesday inside the nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, north of Miami. More than half the community of 15,000 residents lacked power.

In a later statement, Carballo said, "The center and its medical and administrative staff diligently prepared" for the hurricane.

SHAPIRO: And I know you visit her every day.

In Fort Myers, Trump thanked federal disaster relief officials, who have contended with a pair of massive storms in Florida and Texas that have left thousands of Americans displaced.
