Tallahassee Summit to discuss nursing home generator failure

Tallahassee Summit to discuss nursing home generator failure.

The Florida Health Care Association is holding a summit meeting in Tallahassee today to talk about what went wrong at a nursing home in Broward County during Hurricane Irma. 10 people died after the power went out and a back-up generator failed. It happened at about the same time Governor Rick Scott was telling reporters they were on top of the situation.

A spokesman for The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills says they made repeated phone calls to state officials and even left three messages on the governor’s voicemail but never heard back from him. Scott has an entirely different take on the situation and his administration is placing full blame on the nursing home.
