Five die in Florida nursing home after Irma knocked out power

Hurricane Irma: Florida nursing home deaths spur efforts to protect elderly

The center showed deficiencies in maintaining fire and safety standards pertaining to exits and storage areas, as well as more serious problems with its generator maintenance and testing, according to February 2016 reports by Florida Agency for Health Care Administration inspectors. The eight deaths were reported to be heat-related, as the nursing home lost air conditioning during the storm, according to USA Today.

There are now no patients at the center.

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.

Key details of the Hollywood Hills incident remain unknown, even after officials delivered an update Thursday morning. The first 410 employees departed early last Saturday, while a group of about 220 left early Thursday morning.

Relatives started showing up at the nursing home Wednesday afternoon trying to find out whether their loved ones were among the victims.

"Once we determined that we had multiple deaths at the facilities, and that the facilities are extremely hot, we made the decision to evacuate all of the patients", said City of Hollywood spokesperson Raelin Lohse-Storey.

The Memorial Healthcare System is now treating over 150 patients evacuated from the nursing home at different hospitals in its network. That person was taken to a funeral home.

JON HAMILTON, BYLINE: Well, it was it was pretty grim. He added: "As of Tuesday, [the facility] was reporting that everything was OK, that it was using portable air conditioners and fans". The Center also had seven days of food, water, ice and other supplies, including gas for the generator. Police have said the deaths are under investigation.

Officials said a call for service was made around 4 a.m., and responders "found several patients in varying degrees of medical distress".
