Legislators hurry to pass nursing home laws after Irma deaths

Trump to visit hurricane-ravaged Florida

The risk was illustrated Thursday at a nursing home in Hollywood, where eight residents died after their air conditioning stopped working. "All evidence and records in the control of the center are being preserved".

The woman who shot the video sent it to her sister, Carmen Veroy.

City officials said eight others died.

A warrant has been signed to begin searching the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, which is affiliated with Larkin Community Hospital, and a criminal investigation is underway. "We cared for them like family".

Early Wednesday morning, after responding to three calls about patients there in distress, firefighters went through the facility and found three people dead and evacuated more than 150 patients to hospitals, many on stretchers or in wheelchairs, authorities said.

The recording shows the facility had power but workers were using an industrial-size drum fan sitting in front of two closed doors to move air through a hallway.

How hot did it get inside the nursing home?

A Miami law firm filed an emergency complaint Friday morning asking a judge for an order to protect evidence in the case of a senior citizen who died in her nursing home after air conditioning was knocked out for several days by Hurricane Irma.

In all, 141 patients were evacuated from the facility.

By the afternoon, five more had died.

Authorities are now questioning how the conditions at the nursing home lasted for so long.

Canadians were eager to buy insurance after hurricane Andrew devastated southern Florida in 1992, but Rivard said the concern has waned because the state hasn't experienced a big storm in about a decade.

The Florida Health Care Association depicted those unfortunate deaths as a "profound tragedy within the larger tragedy of Hurricane Irma".

There is also a spot cooler, one of eight the state says was brought into the building as temperatures soared. Then came the third call.

By 10 p.m. Monday the center said five more calls were made for help.

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".

"Unfathomable", Gov. Rick Scott said of the nursing home deaths.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said on Thursday that more than 38,000 federal personnel are now working to respond to Hurricane Irma, including staff from the military and civilian agencies.

The nursing home has a history of safety violations and citations, including two for not following generator regulations in 2014 and 2016. Moulder's mother was released from the hospital to a new nursing home. "At what point is it enough?" said Hollywood, Florida, Mayor Josh Levy.

And to think: We nearly escaped Hurricane Irma's ire without a senseless loss of life. After the air conditioning went down, staff set up "mobile cooling units and fans to cool the facility", Carballo said. "I don't know what happened inside".

The center, which police sealed off as a crime scene on Wednesday, was officially ordered closed to new admissions by the state's Agency for Health Care Administration.

Realtor Jass Tremblay of Marathon said most of the Canadian customers she knows in the Keys don't have insurance. "There are not as many beds and facilities available as there are people with needs". On one unannounced visit, I encountered an older man helplessly splayed on the floor, naked - as staff walked by with food trays.

She questioned whether short staffing and fatigue on the part of overworked personnel may have factored in the crisis.

"I have nobody", she said. "When we approach her she wasn't really crying but tears were kind of coming, she says 'I can't breathe, I can't breathe Jean, '" Johnson said.

Moulder's attorney, Bill Dean, said Moulder visited her mother on Monday and anxious about the heat. "She was absolute a true friend".
