Florida governor orders removal of nursing home from Medicaid after 8 died

Hollywood Hills Florida

Trump praised Florida Power & Light CEO Eric Silagy and told reporters that, "for the most part, the electric is going back on", though millions of people remain in the dark.

Several nursing homes have been evacuated because of a lack of power or air conditioning, while utility workers raced to help facilities still lacking electricity. Yesterday afternoon, the facility reported to the AHCA that they had power and access to fans and spot coolers provided by Memorial Healthcare.

Sanchez, the police chief, said a criminal investigation had been launched.

"Most of the patients have been treated for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat-related issues", said Dr.

Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief confirmed three people were pronounced dead at the facility.

Early Wednesday morning, three patients arrived at the hospital across the street with extremely high body temperatures.

In a statement, Richard Beltran, a spokesman for Florida Power & Light, said: "What we know now is that a portion of the facility did, in fact, have power, that there was a hospital across the parking lot from this facility and that the nursing home was required to have a permanently installed operational generator".

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. The power stayed on, but a janitor soon noticed a problem: The massive chiller used to serve the 152-bed facility was spewing warm, muggy air.

The electricity is out in her condo, so there's no television for news.

"The president's action during these times demonstrate why he's a true leader who can bring the country together and get things done for the American people", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at Tuesday's press briefing after announcing Trump's planned travel. Defede said. "Well, we're not sure and we're still trying to find out, but clearly the help did not come".

Keys officials are setting up almost two dozen checkpoints in the hardest hit areas staffed by law-enforcement to make sure only authorized residents and relief workers get through.

On Friday, a Miami law firm filed a complaint against the Hollywood facility on behalf of the family of Albertina Vega, a 99-year-old patient who was one of the eight people who died.

The Daytona Beach Fire Department said on Twitter a generator had been running inside the home. The statement also revealed that 150 of the 700 facilities in the state of Florida still are not operating with full power services. North Carolina reported its first Irma-related death on Friday after a man died from carbon monoxide poisoning, and two more people died in Florida from the unsafe fumes, including a woman in Palm Beach County.

Hurricane Irma restrengthened to a Category 4 storm just before it bore down on the Florida Keys, making landfall Sunday morning at Cudjoe Key.

Across Florida and nearby states, some 5 million homes and businesses were without power on Wednesday, down from a peak of 7.8 million on Monday. At least 37 people were killed in the Caribbean.

Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Brock Long said preliminary estimates suggested that 25 percent of the homes in the Keys were destroyed and 65 percent sustained major damage. "If you go back into the teens, you'll see storms that were as big or bigger".

A total of eight people died at the elderly home, prompting questions as to who was responsible for the deaths and how, exactly, the tragedy occurred.
