Well if there is a heat wave, massive power outage and their generator goes out, the waiting list should winnow down.

Extreme temperature changes and of course, rampant flu and pneumonia outbreaks in facilities seem to increase the mortality rate.

I know, it’s morbid, but it’s been my observation.

Interesting conjecture. I wonder if the management can require everyone to have flu and pneumonia shots? Likely. Also, these are people who can afford health care (and all would have Medicare.)

This particular Old Folks Home (As we call them) is on the ocean, and benefits from a cooler local climate.
