Following is a statement from U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson on the deaths of six senior citizens at a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida:
“This is an inexcusable tragedy that frail patients would die of heat exhaustion without it being recognized and taking them to the hospital next door. I have spoken with the Secretary of HHS to get to the bottom of this. We need to make sure we’re doing everything we can to keep our seniors safe during this difficult time.”
