    Response: I visited this facility and was appalled at the apparent fire hazard of electrical outlet, blackened like it had caught fire. I also felt like I needed a bath when I left the place. Equipment was very old, beds circa 1925, with thin hand cranks.

    Response: My loved one has been at this facility for years. The facility is clean, the staff is freidndly and administration is responsive.
