By Gretchen Wentz, Executive Director, Emeritus at Baywood 

On June 29th, the Arizona Department of Health submitted an inspection report to Emeritus at Baywood, a senior living community, in Mesa AZ.  Unfortunately, the report identified some kitchen areas that needed correction.   

We take the State's findings extremely seriously, and have cooperated with them to address the identified issues.  The violations included concerns such as dented cans, oil on shelves and dry food placement.  The community's kitchen did not have any sanitary or infestation issues. 

On the same day of the inspection report, the violations were immediately addressed and corrected.  The State has accepted these corrections. 

At Emeritus at Baywood, we understand the importance of preparing delicious meals and are committed to creating meaningful dining experiences for our residents. Senior living residents dine on their community's fare nearly every day, often for all three meals, so we also know there is always room for improvement.  To that end, this circumstance has afforded the community the opportunity to bring in qualified resources to evaluate and improve procedures, train the staff on these procedures, and integrate them into our operations.

We look forward to receiving another clean kitchen inspection report next week while we continue to focus on the safety and care of our valued residents.
