People have lost literally everything. Does insurance cover a natural disaster?
Reading that majority in the area don't have flood insurance.
If you don't care why would you comment?

even so, natural disaster may not be covered regardless

If you have flood insurance it is covered at least my house is.  :)

Whoever runs that place should be in prison.
Do you have experience evacuating a SNF during a disaster like this? I do and it's not so simple. I can't say how it's down there in Texas but here in NYC/Nassau durning Sandy, there were dozens of nursing homes that were in zone 1 (or may have been 5. They changed it right afterwards) and  thousands of patients had to be evacuated. In short the government took over all ambulances (including private) so any contracts went out the window.
Next there were major staff shortages. This was due to 1) many healthcare workers work in two facilities and 2) employees also have to make sure that their families are safe 3) mass transit shut down.
Next there was mass evacuation from areas like the Rockaways (where the are about 20 nursing homes), Seagate, Coney island, etc. The roads were gridlock like I've never seen before.
And then there are those that have kedima like hospital's (several were evacuated), critical patients like ventalator dependant, and so on. Based on the pic, it looks like the residents in that home were quite stable (u won't find any of my vent patients in a wheelchair).
I could go on but I think you get my point.

Just move them to a second floor. They could come down with gd-knows-what sitting in all that water. They shouldn't be treated worse then pets.

Is there a second floor in that facility?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Who said there's a 2nd floor? Out on the island there are 1 and 2 floor facilities. (And who says it wasn't in the 2nd floor?). So I wouldn't be surprised if a small 25 bed place like this is similar.

If not you get them to a place with a second floor. Or don't run such a facility.
