The State has previously experienced extreme shortages of electrical power after storms that have jeopardized, and continue to jeopardize, the health, safety, and welfare of residents in Florida’s nursing homes. For this reason, the State implemented a new rule that requires each nursing home to acquire an alternative power source to ensure that temperatures are maintained, by June 1st, 2018.

The rule came after the death of over a dozen residents who overheated in a South Florida nursing home 2017’s Hurricane Irma. At the time the mandate was only a temporary emergency measure.

The legislation now requires backup power sources that can maintain air conditioners in the event of an outage and requires portable power sources that can provide at least 30 square feet of cool space for each resident.
