Miami-Dade Assisted Living Facility Barred From Accepting New Residents


Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration has forbidden any new residents to enter the Florida Gardens Assisted Living Facility in south Miami-Dade County following two recent resident deaths. 

Floridian Gardens Assisted Living Facility, located at 17250 SW 137th Ave., is operated by the same individual who owns the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills. 

Dozens of residents from the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills died following Hurricane Irma.

Now, authorities say two residents of the Floridian Gardens Assisted Living Facility have died since March. The residents' exact cause of death is unknown.

The Agency for Health Care Administration claims that staff procedures did not meet the agency's safety standards and present "an immediate serious danger to the public health, safety or welfare" of residents. 

Grettel Arzola, the Floridian Gardens Assisted Living Facility administrator, declined to comment.

Authorities are still investigating the deaths of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills residents.
