It seems every time there is a storm a nursing home is faulted for how they handle it. St Rita’s in Louisiana was faulted for not evacuating during Katrina. Later, a Houston nursing home was questioned for evacuating residents from Rita’s path after 24 died in a bus fire.
The latest comes from Sandy, where a Queens nursing home is under fire for not evacuating or properly preparing.
