    My God did they leave these people to die?

    I am usually not shocked by what some can do to others but this has made me sick.
    I am like water. I follow the path of least resistance
    but you cannot compress me.

    The most precious thing a man can give to another is time,
    as of it, we have so little.

    Pain, as told to me, "Lets you know you are alive."

    revolutionary act" George Orwell

    Kill them all if you wish.

    Nothing in the linked article indicates they abandoned the patients. Seems more like a lot of elderly, probably not so healthy people were exposed to the same conditions as millions of other Floridians right now, no power, no A/C, no running and or little potable water and some expired.

    Even up here when it gets hot in the summer we occasionally have quite a few elderly deaths from the heat.
    Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized ,Forever!!!!!!!

    Well ok we will see. But it seems strange that a doctor was summoned around 6a and immediately knew
    something was wrong. So nobody is even looking at a place that has over 100 of your grandma/pa s ok.

    I don't see that in the article you linked? It does say they called around 3am to report a possible heart attack and later for a respiratory issue. It also said the staff was using fans and portable A/C units. Seems pretty clear no one was abandoned.
