Alice Thomas, 94, is the latest patient of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills to die after a power outage caused by Hurricane Irma.

As the facility waited to have power restored, eight other residents died in the sweltering heat. Many were moved into the hallways, next to fans and spot coolers. One transformer handles life and safety systems while the second supports the air conditioning system. Senior explained to nursing home officials about an emergency rule that will require the facilities to have backup power that can last up to four days.

Florida Power and Light reported that all but 300 customers remain without power in Lee County, while Collier, which took the brunt of the storm, has 240 customers in the dark.

Eight patients died on September 13, three days after Irma knocked out the home's air conditioning.

Caregiver, 50, left child in vehicle for reasons not yet stated
ET the same day in the auto parked outside a west-end condo tower. "I don't know what other responsibilities, if any, she has". Zeljna Kosovac appeared in court on Friday and was charged with criminal negligence causing death.

Scott said at no time did anyone from the nursing home suggest there was a crisis or that patients were in danger. Carlos Canal, 93, the ninth victim from the nursing home, died Tuesday morning.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will accept official first responder identification in lieu of a state fishing license during this period.

"This includes a facility nurse recording a patient's temperature at 101.6 degrees, but the patient was actually no longer at the facility, and had a recorded temperature 108.3 by the hospital", it said. Two other patients died earlier this week.

AHCA and the Department of Children & Families are conducting administrative reviews of the nursing home. The deaths are all being considered as part of an ongoing criminal investigation, the police department said. A moratorium was imposed on the facility that prevents it from admitting any patients.
