NOT clean. Staff is not friendly and lights are broken and it is very Run down filled with old drug addicts and homeless people. It has a big turn over with staff and clients. I wouldn't put my DOG in this place.

Response: My father was a resident of Shields Richmond Nursing Center for the past year. Everyone was nice, loving and very caring. My dad liked the facility and said it was a blessing. It was neat and clean. The landscaping is nice with a fountain out front and a nice patio on the inside. Words can`t thank them enough for the great care.
