Boca Raton police say investigators are looking into a suspicious death at ManorCare Health Services on Yamato Road.

It began after officers answered a call at Boca Raton Regional Hospital to speak with medical personnel who had transferred a male patient who had died.

Police say the man was found on the floor next to his bed in his room at the health services center by staff members.

They began CPR which was underway when Boca Raton Fire-Rescue arrived to take the patient to the hospital where he died, police say.

According to the investigation, ManorCare staff members said they last saw the patient at approximately 4:30 a-m when he was wandering the halls, brought him back to his room and then while doing rounds, found him on the floor about two hours later.

Police say the man was living in the area housing dementia patients.

Anyone with information is asked to call Boca Raton Police Detective Hanley at 561‐338‐1344.
