Last quote by Rick Scott

The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills is responsible for the safety of their patients. We must understand why this facility delayed calling 911 and evacuating patients and their decision to keep their patients in danger. During emergencies, health care facilities must be fully prepared to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of those in their care and there is absolutely no excuse not to protect life.feedback
