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

Rick Scott

"This situation is unfathomable".

"...met in March with Broward County officials to discuss hurricane preparations, but that the officials had not flagged the nursing home as "top-tier" critical infrastructure that would need power first".

The eight victims ranged in age from 70 to 99.

Exactly how the deaths happened was under investigation, with Sanchez saying authorities have not ruled anything out, including carbon monoxide poisoning from generators.

Vice President Mike Pence also spoke in Florida, where he committed the federal government's help in repairing the Sunshine State. Sanchez said precautionary checks would be done on Hollywood's 42 other nursing homes.

"We're talking about taking care of people, people brought here that have done a good job". Not all of their conditions were known but city spokeswoman Raelin Storey said some of the evacuated patients were in respiratory distress.

"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", Scott said in a news release.

Six people at a Florida nursing home that was left without power for days after Hurricane Irma have died.

Those who died Wednesday in South Florida were part of a death toll that, while relatively low compared with other massive storms, has slowly climbed in recent days. A Tampa man died after the chain saw he was using to remove trees kicked back and cut his carotid artery.

Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said three were found dead at the nursing home in the city of Hollywood. By the afternoon, five more had died.

Medical staff from a nearby hospital said that residents were suffering from dehydration and breathing difficulties.

Nursing home operators had put out cooling units and fans in an effort to maintain reasonable temperatures and added additional cooling units supplied by a hospital next door on Tuesday.

"The facility had some power".

"Historically there's never been anything like this, but the U.S. Coast Guard, FEMA, working with Gov. Scott, they've really done an wonderful job, power is turning on rapidly", said Mr. Trump.

Through a representative, Carballo told the SunSentinel newspaper that the home has a backup generator but that it does not power the air conditioning.

In the United States, almost 7 million people were told to evacuate over the weekend and 13 million Floridians have been left without power in hot steamy weather.

In a separate statement, the Florida Department of Health's Mara Gambineri wrote "this facility is located across the street from one of Florida's largest hospitals, which never lost power and had fully operating facilities". Utility officials warned it could take a week or more for all areas to be back up and running. By 2040, officials estimate the state will have more than 6 million senior citizens.

Elsewhere around the state, a Coral Gables apartment building was evacuated after authorities determined a lack of power made it unsafe for elderly tenants.

"It's a team like very few people have seen", he said.
