    5th nursing home resident dies after being evacuated to Tangipahoa facility now under probe – New Orleans, Louisiana

    New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-09-04 07:25:00 –

    A Louisiana coroner said a fifth nursing home resident had died after evacuating to a warehouse in Tangipahoa Parish for hurricane Ida. The facility is currently under investigation by federal and state officials for filth and is alienating licensed health inspectors. A fifth nursing home resident was sentenced to death at a state shelter in Alexandria after being taken to a shelter from the Tangipahoa facility. Rapids parish coroner Jonathan Hunter believed it was related to the storm of death and added that the woman may have died while being transferred to Alexandria. “I tend to blame the storm for this death,” said Hunter, who said the autopsy would reveal the exact cause of death and the method of death for the woman. The state survey was centered around a warehouse facility in the Tangipahoa Parish, and 843 residents were dispatched from seven Bob Dean-operated nursing facilities before Aida landed in southeastern Louisiana. Attorney General Jeff Landry said Friday that his office had begun its own review of the evacuation decision. Hundreds of surviving nursing home evacuees were scattered in shelters and hospitals throughout the state on Friday after the Louisiana Department of Health decided on Waterbury Companies, Inc. After the storm, the warehouse was not safe for evacuees. AARP Louisiana demanded that the nursing homes involved lose their licenses and called the death of the inhabitants “the result of a complete failure of surveillance, execution and planning.” Coroners in the Parish of Tangipahoa classified three of the four previously disclosed storm deaths related to Waterbury as “storm-related.”
