A new study by researchers at Fukushima Medical University shows that elderly residents living in nursing homes in Fukushima Prefecture died at a rate nearly two and half times higher in in 2011 following the Fukushima nuclear disaster than they did the previous year.

The group studied records from 34 nursing homes located within 20 km of the Fukushima plant. During the three months after the crisis began, the rate was three times as high as that during the same period in 2010. The researchers believe that the deaths were a result of the stress of evacuating long distances, as well as substandard care received at temporary evacuation facilities.

In addition, the study revealed that most of the nursing homes are not prepared to protect residents in case of a nuclear disaster. Seiji Yasumura, a professor at Fukushima Medical University who worked on the study, noted,

“The latest study revealed the surveyed facilities lacked concrete evacuation plans and procedures, and furthermore had not conducted evacuation drills.

Hospitals are better prepared for disasters than institutions for the elderly. The central and local governments need to address this.”
