Subject: Investigate Gov. Scott’s role in tragic nursing home deaths
In the days and weeks following Hurricane Irma, 14 elderly Floridians have died unnecessarily after they were left in the suffocating heat of their nursing home with no power. Several calls for help to Gov. Scott were sent to voicemail, then deleted, and no help was sent.
Join me and tell the Florida Legislature to investigate Gov. Scott and his administration’s role in the tragedy that led to the death of 14 Floridians in a nursing home:
We know the legislature needs to act on a number of fronts to deal with the tragedy that unfolded at Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, particularly requiring every nursing home to have a generator in case the facility loses power. However, the legislature simply cannot ignore the systemic lack of oversight of Florida’s nursing homes. The sad reality is that this has been going on for many years.
It’s time for serious action. Thanks for your help.
