With the assistance of Memorial Healthcare System - Memorial Regional Hospital is across the street - officers and firefighters evacuated 115 people from the center and Larkin Community Hospital. Three days after Hurricane Irma rumbled through the region, residents are coping with the aftermath.
Almost a week after Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida and barreled through the state, over 1.6 million customers still have no power in the sweltering September heat.
"Although the details of these reported deaths are still under investigation, this situation is unfathomable", Scott tweeted. "Every facility that is charged with caring for patients must take every action and precaution to keep their patients safe - especially patients that are in poor health". It gave The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, a for-profit facility with 152 beds, an overall rating of "below average". Authorities said other people at the facility were being evacuated to other locations. She adds that utility providers have said they hope to have power restored for all of southeastern Florida by the weekend.
At the time of the deaths at the Hollywood Hills nursing home, almost 150 other nursing homes were without power.
"A portion of the facility did, in fact, have power, that there was a hospital across the parking lot from this facility and that the nursing home was required to have a permanently installed operational generator", the power company spokesman Richard Beltran told CNN.
According to the moratorium, the practices and conditions at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills was a threat to health, safety or welfare of the residents, clients and public.
The Governor's Office also denies that at any time did the nursing home state their patients were at risk or experiencing health problems. AHCA said the facility has an occupancy rate of 93 percent.
Florida Sen. Bill Nelson called the six deaths in Hollywood "an inexcusable tragedy" and demanded a federal investigation. "I've asked HHS to look into this".
The death toll in both hurricanes, though, is indeed far below what other major storms have inflicted on America.
The group said it was working with officials to prioritise "the locations with the greatest need".
City officials described the interior as "excessively hot", despite portable air coolers and fans that, according to state records, had been placed throughout the facility.
Sharief said it was not immediately clear what caused the deaths at the nursing home, which is believed to have lost air conditioning after the storm.
Ten million people are still without power in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas after Hurricane Irma. The center released a statement saying their hearts go out to the families and friends of those affected.
"But the United States Coast Guard, FEMA, working along with Gov. (Rick) Scott, they've really done an fantastic job", adding that "power is being turned on rapidly", he said.
"Let's go see how we're doing because I think we're doing a good job in Florida", Mr Trump told reporters in Fort Myers after fielding questions about a potential deal with Democratic lawmakers on protections for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.
