2004 Nursing Homes: what LTC providers learned from battling four hurricanes

Nursing Homes, Nov, 2004

It wasn’t a record you’d want to set: the first state since Texas in 1886 to be ravaged by at least three major hurricanes in one season. Florida, as everyone knows, was hit by Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne within the space of five weeks in August and September. (As of this writing, the hurricane season had several weeks to go until the traditional November 30 conclusion.) The personal devastation experienced by Floridians was immense, and many small businesses were put out of business for good. In the middle of it all were long-term care facilities housing some of the state’s most vulnerable people. The facilities themselves, confronting not only storm damage but the prospects of a costly cleanup, were in frail condition, as well. How did they get through it? What did they learn? What happens next?
