Florida Nursing Home where 12 Died, Now Closed 245 Workers Laid Off

Nursing home where a dozen died after Irma laid off 245 employees when doors shuttered
A Florida nursing home that was shut down after 12 residents died following Hurricane Irma has laid off its workers. Cecilia Franco is the wife of Miguel Antonio Franco, 92, who was among the first eight victims to die in the sweltering facility on September 13.
The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills filed a lawsuit last month in Leon County circuit court challenging September 13 and September 14 state orders that placed a moratorium on patient admissions and suspended the facility from the Medicaid program.
The state closed the nursing home down after eight residents died from sweltering heat on September 13 due to Irma knocking out the center's air-conditioning system.
State officials suspended their license after the evacuation, and owners eventually closed the facility permanently.
Navarro filed a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit against The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills Sept. 22. The lawsuit seeks an injunction against the state. The figure, compiled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the state Division of Emergency Management from county medical examiners, includes nine deaths in Broward County.
When the hurricane hit South Florida on September 10, one of the nursing home's transformers powering its cooling system went down.
The patients died after the storm damaged the electric transformer that powered the facility's air conditioning. Circuit Judge James Shelfer has scheduled a hearing for October 27.
