New Rules Require Permanent Generators in All Florida Nursing Homes

As the Atlantic hurricane season kicks off, skilled nursing providers in Florida have been working to meet the requirements of the state’s new nursing home generator law.

There have been hurdles along the way. The law, first proposed in the wake of the deaths that followed Hurricane Irma at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, became law in March after legal tangles and opposition from provider groups.

Under the legislation, SNFs and assisted living facilities are required to have generators that can maintain a temperature of 81 degrees or lower for four days. The deadline for compliance was June 1, but SNFs could apply for an extension if needed.

If you have questions about the new requirements or are interested in a no-cost assessment of your facility, contact TitanGen General Manager Adam Teff directly at (860) 965-2884 or via email at ateff@titanenergyne.com.
