NEW ORLEANS. The owner of seven Louisiana nursing homes whose residents suffered in appalling conditions after being evacuated to a warehouse as Hurricane Ida approached last year was arrested Wednesday, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said.

Bob Glynn Dean Jr., 68, is charged with patient abuse, Medicaid fraud and obstruction of justice, the attorney general said in a press release.

In the first days after the shelling of Ida, on August 29 last year, the state reported the death of seven people who were evacuated to a warehouse in the city of Independence. Five were classified as storm-related deaths. State and federal officials described dire conditions at the warehouse, with some bedridden residents on mattresses on the floor calling for help, and some with full diapers.

Online booking records show that Dean was in custody Wednesday afternoon at Tangipahoa Ward. His lawyer did not immediately respond to an email request for comment.

In a press release, Landry said that Dean billed Medicaid for days when its residents did not receive proper care at the warehouse “and engaged in behavior designed to intimidate or obstruct health and law enforcement officials.”

Dean has already lost government licenses to his seven properties after he moved hundreds of tenants to a poorly equipped warehouse as Ida approached. In May, the US Department of Health and Human Services announced that it was banning Dean from receiving federal funding, including Medicare.

Ida made landfall last August as one of the worst storms to ever hit the US, cutting off power to all of New Orleans, blowing roofs off buildings and reversing the Mississippi River as it rushed off the coast of Louisiana into a major industrial hub. . the corridor. Ida’s landfall with 150 mph (240 km/h) winds marked the first time in recorded history that the state experienced winds of 150 mph or more in consecutive years.
