Details:

Very nasty facility inside. You can smell mold when you go into the patients rooms. The staff is very unprofessional and the kitchen staff is unbearable. They tell a lot of lies on the traveler that come to help them. Their is bugs thought out the building. They only have house keeping maybe ,3 times a week the patients rooms doesn't get cleaned on a daily basis and the bathrooms are disgusting and that's putting it lightly. The nursing staff is prejudice to the bone. No kind of housekeeping on the weekends. This place need to be shut down because the residents deserve better and plus they pay for it. I don't know how they pass the state because I'm not state and I witness several violations. Holds in the roof.
