A Bradenton, Fla., nursing home that had been called out for failing to submit plans to the Agency for Health Care Administration, or AHCA, is now in compliance with Gov. Rick Scott’s emergency rule, according to an article on the Bradenton Herald website.
The directive required that nursing homes and assisted living facilities provide plans to the state agency by Oct. 31, detailing procedures to get enough generators and fuel to keep the facilities at 80 degrees or below for at least 96 hours.
It came after Hurricane Irma cut the power to a Hollywood Hills nursing home, leading to sweltering conditions and the deaths of 14 people.
The state agency had listed Braden River Rehabilitation Center LLC as not having complied with the deadline, according to a press release sent Wednesday. The facility’s corporate office was contacted by the Bradenton Herald with no reply.
