Association of Power Outage with Mortality and Hospitalizations Among Florida Nursing Home Residents After Hurricane Irma

The authors conducted a retrospective cohort study to understand the impact of power failure on 54,095 nursing home residents after Hurricane Irma in 2017. They found that lack of power after Hurricane Irma was “associated with an increased odds of mortality within 7 days and 30 days.” The increased odds of mortality and hospital utilization illustrate the need to better analyze the specific risks and encourage preparedness and regulation to close the gaps.
