Further investigation found possible extensive damage to the entire facility’s electrical system.
There was no fire and no injuries were reported.
Ambulances and vans from several medical facilities including AdventHealth Gordon and Redmond, Atrium Health Floyd, and CHI Memorial assisted in the temporary relocation of the residents to other area nursing facilities.
