Details:

Good place except for 2 important problems: 1) a very small number of staff that either treat patients badly or steal from from and 2) feeding food that is so nutritionally poor as to pose a danger to the patients (ex. dinner for a diabetic with heart problems was choice of salami on white bread with chips (and no veggies) or a scoop of cottage cheese and a Danish; served Aug 2, 2009).
