"Was not interested to get there", she said, blaming Florida Power and Light, not the nursing home staff, for the deaths. He added that "I don't know what he's going to do".

Sanchez said police have opened a criminal investigation into the deaths.

Later, Scott directed AHCA to issue an emergency moratorium for the facility, prohibiting it from admitting any patients until the order is lifted. The hospital never reported losing power during the storm.

Earlier in his one-day visit to Florida, Trump also lauded state and federal officials for their preparation and response to the hurricane.

A state inspection report in February 2016 cited the facility for failing to comply with regulations for emergency generators.

Florida officials have made restoring lost power a priority and tens of thousands of utility company workers are engaged in the huge effort, many from out of state. There's been a bankruptcy, a change of ownership and Medicare inspectors have given this place below-average ratings. City and state officials said they were in contact with the nursing home over the past three days and advised them to call 911 if they believed that the health or safety of patients was at risk. He is also the president of Larkin Community Hospital, which has campuses in South Miami and Hialeah. Michel is listed in state corporate records as Larkin's president, as well.

"I want to thank everybody", Trump said. "Nobody's telling us nothing".

The patient was brought to the hospital and firefighters were called back to the facility at 4 a.m.to transport another patient experiencing breathing problems.

Broward County is one of several areas in Florida that remains without power.

Sanchez said that officers and fire crews responded Wednesday morning to a call from the facility about some patients in need of critical care. The two often traveled together and had lived together for 25 years. But after more deaths sparked new questions about conditions at the center, the body was claimed by the medical examiner. "Our hearts go out to the families and friends of those who were affected", the Sun Sentinel quoted Carballo as saying.

Paramedics rushed to evacuate the sweltering facility, but four more nursing home patients died in hospitals. "However, it is clear that this is an isolated incident and is not representative of the larger long-term care profession in Florida".

The facility's administrator, Jorge Carballo, said in a statement that it was cooperating fully with authorities.

Craig said the facility was already understaffed, and they just couldn't handle the undertaking once Hurricane Irma hit.

The death toll from Irma stood at 81 on Thursday, including 38 in the United States, with several hard-hit Caribbean islands including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands accounting for more than half of the fatalities.
