Are Nursing Homes Ready For Hurricane Season

The Hurricane season will be upon us very shortly.  We all recall the devastation and loss of life last year, specifically with the elderly left alone or in an ill prepared nursing facility.  We will lose power, that’s a given.  So, if you have a loved one that lives alone or is in a nursing facility, how certain are you of their safety?  Have you visited the facility to make sure that all their safety assets like generators are working properly?  Do they even have a generator?   Is there an exit plan for those confined to wheel chairs or bed stricken?  Now is the time to check these and other safety measures out before it’s too late.  Ask the management if there is a protocol for staff that is on duty during these severe weather conditions?  How much staff will be on duty and what’s the plan for their safety and that of their families?
