Including the nursing home deaths, at least 26 people in Florida have died under Irma-related circumstances, and six more in SC and Georgia, many of them well after the storm passed. "The thing that hits them first is dehydration and then their temperature increases and then respiratory issues kick in".

"The Hollywood Police Department has been granted a search warrant for this property", Raelin Storey, the city's public affairs director, said at a news conference outside the nursing home Thursday morning.

Memorial Regional Hospital began receiving patients early on Wednesday, said Dr.

On Saturday, Gov. Rick Scott attended the funeral in Bradenton for Hardee County Deputy Julie Bridges, a 13-year veteran who died early September 10 in a head-on vehicle collision with Hardee Correctional Institution Sgt. Joseph Ossman.

"We will not stop until 100 percent of Florida homes and businesses have power so all families can get back to their normal lives", Gov.

The governor said he has ordered a probe by state authorities, and Sanchez confirmed a criminal investigation has been launched.

Broward County had said it did not label the nursing home as "critical" infrastructure based on a Florida Power and Light guidance document suggesting that these facilities are "non-critical, but play a decisive role in community recovery after a serious event", the county said in its statement. Mr. Scott directed the secretaries of two state agencies to issue the rules, which the governor's office said were based on standards already in place for Florida hospitals. As part of these efforts, we fully supported legislation that would have helped nursing homes upgrade their emergency power generators by providing partial state reimbursement if the facilities agreed to take in residents from nursing homes in evacuated areas.

With temperatures soaring inside the ill-fated home this week, three people in their seventies, two in their eighties and three in their nineties apparently suffered at length before dying, some of them after being transported - too late - to the nearby hospital. "It is just senseless", she said. "How am I going to last here?" she said, as a tear rolled down her cheek. "If they find that this facility was not meeting the state's high standards of care, they will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law".

The incident raised concerns about the welfare of residents at other nursing centers.

Rosa Cabrera's legal guardian filed the lawsuit in a Broward County state court on Friday on her behalf against the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood, Florida.

The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration gave the home a health-inspection rating of "much below average", the Miami Herald reported. In addition, there are more than 3,100 assisted living facilities with more than 99,000 beds.

Among other cutbacks, Lee said state legislators slashed the number of hours of direct care that nursing homes had to provide to residents. Utility companies are working to restore power to the battered Keys. One of them was later evacuated because of the heat. But they didn't anticipate they would still have to fight the intense heat with fans and portable air conditioner units.

Florida's nursing home industry is populated by hundreds of excellent centers staffed by thousands of dedicated, caring professionals.
