8 die at Florida nursing home in Irma's sweltering aftermath

A Miami law firm Friday filed a court complaint against Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills following the deaths of eight residents at the facility Wednesday.

Similarly, our offer to help evacuate vulnerable people in Florida nursing homes and place them in our nursing and assisted living facilities throughout the United States as a safe haven during and after the storm went unanswered as well.

His statement said the nursing home is undergoing a criminal investigation from local authorities and open investigations from both AHCA and the Florida Department of Children and Families, adding that the state will stop the facility from providing care.

An announcement from the nursing home, the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, affirmed that it had a "delayed power inability to the transformer which fueled the office's aerating and cooling framework because of the tropical storm". Local governments had begun evacuating elders from other long-term care facilities across South Florida that have lost power in the wake of Hurricane Irma. "It is clear that this facility can not be responsible for Florida's vulnerable patients, and therefore the state will stop them from providing care". As of Wednesday afternoon, 3.7 million customers still were without power, according to state statistics. The new rule would allow nursing homes to require that residents agree to arbitration in lieu of a dispute in court, a process that is argued to be more efficient, but also tends to be less favorable for the plaintiff and reward far less in compensation.

Almost a week after Hurricane Irma walloped Florida, the recovery mission picked up momentum as more people had electricity and schools made plans to reopen. "They're too small", Trump said after the glove on his right hand ripped.

Sanchez said that officers and fire crews responded Wednesday morning to a call from the facility about some patients in need of critical care. Over the course of Wednesday, the death toll rose to eight, with the deceased ranging in age from 71 to 99.

At least 36 people have died in the USA under Irma-related circumstances, the vast majority in Florida.

Robert Gould, a spokesman for NextEra Energy Inc's Florida Power & Light, said utility representatives had met with Broward County officials in early March. At the time, Michel said he looked forward "to making the enhancements necessary to convert Hollywood Hills into a 5-star facility to serve the needs of our community".

Administrator Jorge Carballo said that the SNF is fully cooperating with authorities and described the situation as "unfortunate and tragic", according to the Miami Herald. "It is too early to put percentages or dollar figures to damage until we get into the neighborhoods", the county commissioner, Heather Carruthers, said in a statement.

CBS4's Carey Codd said Summerland Key, one of the hardest hit by the storm, remained eerily quiet and dark. "I used to be a nurse and I watched how they did things, and I knew they would mistreat her there".

September 10 As a Category 4 storm, Irma hit the Florida Keys early in the day before continuing its path toward Florida's western coast.

Hurricane Irma, known as "the most powerful Atlantic storm in a decade", struck Florida, causing a Murray State student's family to seek safety elsewhere.
