This Jan. 25 2013, photo shows the Sea Crest Health Care Center in the Brooklyn borough of New York, still unoccupied after it had to be evacuated after Superstorm Sandy.
The nursing home’s executive director said his staff had drilled for evacuations, but the facility’s detailed plan assumed patients would be removed before a storm, not during a power outage. In Superstorm Sandy's wake, health experts and regulators are warning that thousands of nursing homes nationwide are still ill-prepared for a natural disaster. The late October storm was the latest in a string of disasters to reveal gaps in emergency planning, despite an industry-wide effort to improve preparedness in the years since Hurricane Katrina.
