  • Nursing Home Where 12 Patients Died Lays Off 245 Employees

In a letter dated September 27, Carolina Pena, the center's human resources director, wrote the facility was unable to notify the state of the layoffs sooner "due to unforeseen business circumstances that occurred after the impact of Hurricane Irma", the paper reported.

Two women who lived at a Florida nursing home that lost air conditioning during Hurricane Irma have died, becoming the 13th and 14th fatalities linked to the home.

On Sept. 13, eight residents died and other residents were evacuated from the facility.

Investigators are seen on September 13, 2017, at a Florida nursing home where multiple people died during Hurricane Irma.

"The death of Cecilia Franco has compounded this unnecessary tragedy for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren", family attorneys Curtis Miner and Albert Levin said in a statement.

The patients, between the ages of 57 and 99, died last month after The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills failed to evacuate them from the sweltering facility in the days after the storm, state officials said.

Police are including Mrs. Franco's death as part of the criminal investigation against the nursing home, according to Miranda Grossman, a spokeswoman for the Hollywood Police Department. Franco's death follows the death of her 93-year-old husband, Miguel, who was also a patient at the nursing home.

"The respondent's (nursing home's) deficient conduct is widespread and places all future residents at immediate threat to their health, safety and welfare", the order said. Last week, the facility laid off 245 workers.
