Rick Scott, Others, Refute Rehab Center Claims After 8 Deaths

September 15, 2017 6:05 PM

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.

Here is the timeline as provided by the Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills.

It’s a timeline that FPL refutes.

FPL’s Peter Robbins released a statement Friday that read in part, “What we know now is that a portion of the facility did, in fact, have power, that there was a hospital with power across the parking lot from this facility and that the nursing home was required to have a permanently installed, operational generator.”

Governor Rick Scott’s office also released this statement Friday regarding the nursing home claim that they called a special cell phone number three times that he gave out to healthcare executives who needed help.

“Every call made to the Governor from facility management was referred to the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Health and quickly returned.” – John Tupps, Communications Director, Governor Rick Scott.
