(CNN)On the night before emergency workers had to evacuate people from a Florida nursing home where eight died, residents suffered in the sweltering heat as staff used fans to cool them, and one woman sat naked in a bed in a hallway, a video obtained by CNN shows.

The 34-second recording shows a couple in a room at The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood, with a fan sitting on a nightstand, blowing air across the room and a window cracked open slightly.

According to the family member who shot the video, those two nursing home residents received medical treatment and are recovering.


How we treat the young, the old, and the infirm is an indication of the health of society.

It’s not a political problem; it’s a moral problem.

There must be better “community standards” that make this impossible to happen again.

If we valued our fellow humans, then we’d “figure it out”.
