Louisiana revokes nursing home licenses after deaths


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Louisiana health officials are revoking the licenses of seven nursing homes that were evacuated to a warehouse where seven residents died after Hurricane Ida amid conditions deemed squalid.

The Louisiana Department of Health said it alerted the seven nursing homes of the action on Tuesday.

Health Department Secretary Dr. Courtney N. Phillips said in a statement that the homes "clearly failed to execute their emergency preparedness plans to provide essential care and services to their residents."
