MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida Governor Rick Scott, the Florida Department of Health and Florida Power and Light are all refuting claims from a Florida nursing home, where eight people died in the sweltering hot building, that they didn’t do enough to help after the storm knocked out power.
It’s a timeline that FPL refutes.
From Daily Kos’ Walter Einenkel, 09/15/2017:
Nursing home says they called Gov. Rick Scott 3 times for help during Irma outage that left 8 dead
Statement from @FLGovScott on @CBSMiami story that Hollywood nursing home called his cell three times asking for help
The tragic and senseless loss at Hollywood Hills Rehabilitation Center is the subject of a criminal homicide investigation by law enforcement. Let’s be clear — this facility is located across the street from one of Florida’s largest hospitals, which never lost power and had fully operating facilities. It is 100 percent the responsibility of health care professionals to preserve life by acting in the best interest of the health and well-being of their patients.
