Four nursing home patients are dead and 14 hospitalized after they were evacuated to a facility in Independence, La., ahead of Hurricane Ida.
Three of the deaths are confirmed to be storm-related, according to the Louisiana Department of Health.
Now, the department is responding to complaints of unsafe conditions at the site, named Waterbury. It's unclear what the facility's intended use is, but it is not a registered nursing home.
