Five dead at Fla. nursing home without power

Owner of nursing home where 6 died has history of fraud allegations

According to Hollywood Police Chief Tomas Sanchez, 115 patients were evacuated from the facility, some in critical condition.

More than 100 patients at the nursing home were evacuated on Wednesday along with 18 patients from a nearby facility that was cleared due to the criminal investigation, Hollywood officials said. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has ordered an "immediate moratorium" to prevent it from receiving any patients; officials are also checking on other assisted-care facilities and evacuating them if they've lost power.

After getting a call at 4 a.m. Wednesday that someone had died at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, police arrived to find it was extremely hot on the building's second floor. Broward County said the home alerted officials Tuesday that it had lost power, but when asked if it had any medical needs or emergencies, it didn't request help. In Miami Dade, WLRN reporter Nadege Green found elderly residents in a series of Coconut Grove senior-living apartments who remained trapped, no elevator, no electricity; on Tuesday, about 50 residents of a senior-citizens tower in Miami's Civic Center neighborhood damaged by Irma were being taken to a shelter.

Florida Power & Light said in a statement late Wednesday afternoon that it was limited in what it could say because of the investigations.

After whipping by the disaster of storm-force tropical winds and Hurricane Irma, many locations in the South Florida including the nursing home have been residing there without a power supply.

"Most of the patients have been treated for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat-related issues", Dr. "That's why we are camped out there and doing whatever we can to assist them in this process".

Before the hurricane smashed into the USA mainland over the weekend, it struck northern Caribbean islands, leaving at least 44 people dead, authorities said. The staff used fans, put cold towels and ice on patients and gave them cold drinks, he said.

Irma killed at least 36 people in Florida, Georgia and SC, according to officials. The facility had no electrical power after Hurricane Irma struck the state on Sunday, officials said. Today, five nursing home patients in Hollywood succumbed to the Florida heat and died early this morning.

Florida has more than 680 nursing homes that house about 73,000 residents, the Florida Health Care Association said.

A kitchen worker at the center told the Miami Herald that the facility "had power from a generator to cook meals, but no air conditioning".

Across the street from the stifling nursing home sat a fully air-conditioned hospital, Memorial Regional.

Jean Johnson was the last person to see Hibbard alive at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills.

There are 683 nursing homes in Florida with over 84,000 beds, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which licenses and regulates these facilities. As part of the licensure process, AHCA confirms that the facility's emergency plan has been submitted to local officials.

Representatives of the for-profit nursing home, which had received a "below average" grade from Medicare's rating system for such facilities, could not immediately be reached for comment.

As much as 40 percent of Florida still lacked power Wednesday morning, with no definite timeframe when it might be restored.
