That person was taken to a funeral home. The statement also revealed that 150 of the 700 facilities in the state of Florida still are not operating with full power services.
Trump seems to be backpedaling on comments Wednesday, when he suggested rates could go higher for rich people.
"I am absolutely heartbroken to learn of news reports of the deaths of multiple individuals in a nursing home in Broward Count, he said".
Through a representative, Carballo told the SunSentinel newspaper that the home has a back-up generator but that it does not power the air conditioning.
In all, 141 patients were evacuated from the facility. Hospital administrators were advised to call 911 if they had any reason to believe that the health or safety of patients was at risk, Scott said in a statement.
In Lee County, which includes Cape Coral and Fort Myers, the Florida Emergency Management Agency said 66 percent of the area's 290,000 electrical customers were still without power Wednesday.
The incident raises questions of potential liability for health-care facilities in the event of natural disasters and whether regulations governing disaster planning are adequate or adequately enforced. It said on Tuesday nursing home workers made repeated calls to FP&L, which had not fixed the transformer. Yesterday afternoon, the facility reported to the AHCA that they had power and access to fans and spot coolers provided by Memorial Healthcare. Trump said that "the individual rate coming down will be substantial for the middle class", adding those are the Americans he aims to "take care of". The state's Agency for Health Care Administration, which administers Florida's Medicaid program, and its Department of Children and Families are investigating, he said in a statement.
Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said Wednesday three people died at the facility. White House officials say Trump also plans to visit the devastated US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico soon.
Nursing home regulators, during a February 2016 inspection, cited the nursing home for violating regulations regarding generator maintenance and testing, along with other safety code issues such as fire protective construction around exits. Nursing homes across the state are getting new attention after eight patients died Wednesday.
And in December 2014, inspectors noted that "when tested, the remote generator alarm located near the nurses' station failed to function".
The causes of the deaths for the residents, who ranged in ages from 71 to 99, are under investigation to see whether any of them were heat-related, said Raelin Storey, director of public affairs for the City of Hollywood.
Trump tells reporters aboard Air Force One that he had "a good talk" with Peña Nieto Thursday. He said around 39,000 federal officials were assisting with Irma response. The Center also had seven days of food, water, ice and other supplies, including gas for the generator. They can't sit in the heat for very long.
Authorities launched a criminal investigation to figure out what went wrong and who, if anyone, was to blame.
The shocking news that eight people who were residents of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood, Fla., died at the facility in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma has sparked many questions about how such a thing could happen. "Because she died at about 4 a.m.", said Horton. And Hurricane Harvey washed through La Vita Bella assisted living facility, and brought a viral photo of elderly women sitting in deep floodwaters while they awaited rescue.
"We're going to be there".
Trump adds in a tweet that he has spoken to the "President of Mexico to give condolences on awful quake".
"I don't know that there is a ideal way", she said.
Without central air conditioning, residents were kept in hallways near the cooling units. Horton said the 78-year-old could not do for herself. "I last talked to her two days ago".
