Nursing home kitchens serve food to elderly residents. Older people and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to suffer the severe effects of any illness, including foodborne illness. Nursing home kitchens are inspected more often because of this. The food in these establishments is prepared and served to residents of the facilities and not to the general public.
Online inspections are available almost immediately after the facility is inspected.

NC Restaurant rules help keep food prepared and served in nursing home kitchens safe.
