No Generator of some capacity to allow for some window units!!! This nursing home should of had a 20kw-40kw generator to supply some window ACs, fans & lights!!!
All of the nursing homes here and assisted living have huge generators! Patients are on oxygen is number one ! This is pure crap ! Families need to sue their doors closed
The operators of this nursing home need to be held responsible for these deaths. Not notifying authorities of this situation and arranging for evacuation immediately is at the very least reckless endangerment. Charges need to brought against them!
While I appreciate the extensive coverage of Florida I would still like to see what is happening in Texas. And while we are at it, why so much coverage for Clinton and her stupid book? Who cares what that washed up moron is doing? Let's focus on the now and get out of the past.
I'm so sorry for these people. But I'm left with so many questions. Why on earth would anyone put a generator inside the house. That would be like parking your running car in the living room. Second, where were the backup generators for a Nursing home as large as this? It's mind numbing that a facility that cares for the helpless would not have a backup system. what is done is done. Prayers for all those affected by this. God Bless
I thought nursing homes were all evacuated but why no backup generator.. this is senseless when it could have been avoided if the administrator did their job
Mandate generators? Who's gonna do that? Your government? You really think that's the answer? How about doing your homework before you put a loved one in a facility that doesn't have contingency plans!
This should NEVER have happened. They should have been evacuated immediately to shelters knowing they are frail and would quickly suffer from heat. Tragic and avoidable.
Maybe I missed it... but were the deaths a direct result of storm related issues, or we're these patients at end of life and passed of natural causes?
Nursing homes house hospice patients. Patients who may have been at end of life may not have been moved.
Just curious of the facts before bashing the nursing home.
I know from experience ,you cannot tolerate hot or cold if you are in your end times. Your heart and lungs are not up to the challenge.
