Bugs Mold and Unwashed Hands Rampant Safety Violations in Nursing Home Kitchens Endanger Residents

A disturbing article published by FairWarning on October 3, 2019 describes rampant violations of food safety standards by nursing homes that are endangering residents throughout the nation. Among its revelations are that a third of all nursing homes were cited for food safety deficiencies in 2018 but the federal government almost never imposes penalties for these violations. The article also addresses the Trump Administration’s proposed rollback of nursing home standards, which would gut the qualifications for nursing home directors of food and nutrition services.
