Eight residents died at a Florida nursing home which has been without power since Hurricane Irma and the state governor vowed a full investigation Wednesday into what he called an "unfathomable" event.

"The Hollywood Police Department has been granted a search warrant for this property, and officers are on scene continuing their criminal investigation", said City of Hollywood Spokesperson Raelin Storey.

CMS records show Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills was only equipped with a temporary generator in early 2016 and officials lacked a plan to replace it with a permanent generator. The facility kept calling Florida Power & Light. They don't sweat as much, they are more likely to have medical conditions that change how the body responds to heat, and they are more likely to take medication that affects body temperature.

NBC Miami that the building was cool as of Tuesday, but that he returned Wednesday morning to a chaotic, overheated facility. All were admitted to the hospital or transferred to another nursing home.

Several residents from the center could be seen sitting on wheelchairs outside the nursing home next to the hospital.

"I hope this man right here, Rick Scott, runs for the Senate", Trump said. In both instances, the nursing home corrected these deficiencies. Additionally, when the transformer powering the A/C went down, staff set up mobile cooling units and fans to cool the facility. Staff also "continually checked on residents' well-being" to ensure they were "hydrated and as comfortable as possible", Carballo said. They called 911. They said there's no air conditioning.

"We are devastated by these losses". Police officials said other patients were in critical care.

When asked why the patients hadn't been taken across the street to Memorial Regional hospital when temperatures became unsafe, Hollywood city spokeswoman Rayelin Storey said, "We can't get inside the heads of the staff and the administrators of this facility". These are special, special people and we love 'em.

Eight dead at Florida nursing home
Police have begun a criminal investigation of the deaths at The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, 1200 N 35th Ave. Florida's southwestern coast is a haven for retirees seeking warm weather and handsome sunsets across the Gulf of Mexico.

"There's nothing we can do", Long said.

Most of the patients treated for respiratory distress, dehydration, and heat-related issues, officials said, and about 12 of the 115 patients are in the emergency room. "We all have elderly people in facilities, and we all know we depend on those people in those facilities to care for a vulnerable elderly population".

"They looked like they were dehydrated". According to nursing home officials, FPL said they would have crews dispatched the next morning.

Families looking for information can call the hospital hotline at 954-265-1074. It shouldn't be up to administrators in nursing homes to make those judgemental calls.

"What the hell happened?"

Eatherly developed Alzheimer's back in 2000.

"I believe that she was actually one of the first to go, actually".

But Johnson said she never thought her friend would die.
