Food safety in retirement homes

In institutions, salads are few and far between.
This home was inspected and, again, had problems. Family members are wise to check out performances in such retirement homes.
In my late father's LTC home, fruit was never offered. Many cannot eat it, but others can.
His private retirement home was terrific, but cost a lot. Many cannot afford a retirement home.

If they have issues with handling food according to acceptable standards, what are they doing in terms of medical practices?
