13th patient from sweltering Florida nursing home dies

The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Florida

Mrs. Franco was married to 92-year-old Miguel Antonio Franco, one of the first eight residents to die in the overheated care facility September 13, according to family attorney Albert Levin.

Meanwhile Thursday, Scott released a statement calling on the state Constitution Revision Commission to consider proposals that could help protect residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Cecilia and Miguel Antonio Franco died within a month of each other. Three more died the following week, and a 57-year-old woman died the week after. Cecilia Franco, one of the residents evacuated hours after residents began dying, was described by family lawyers as being in serious condition. She died Monday morning in hospice care.

On Sept. 13, eight residents died and other residents were evacuated from the sweltering facility after the electric transformer that powered the facility's air conditioning was damaged during the storm. One video obtained by CNN shows a naked woman sitting in a hallway on what appears to be a hospital bed.

Park will not play in Saturday's game against Oklahoma
Iowa State coach Matt Campbell, however, denied the rumors via a text message to the Ames Tribune's Dylan Montz. The Sooners hung on to beat Baylor two weeks ago, extending their Big 12 winning streak to 19 games.

The nursing home's license was revoked the same day by the state Agency for Health Care Administration, which cited several residents' deaths from respiratory or cardiac distress and administrators' efforts to revise patients' medical records after the fact.

When the hurricane hit South Florida on September 10, one of the nursing home's transformers powering its cooling system went down.

The nursing home has expressed its sympathy for the families of the deceased and said it is "fully cooperating with all authorities and regulators to assess what went wrong".
