report suspected black mold in a Nursing Home

Dear George,

How do i anonymously report suspected black mold in a Nursing Home? I have very close friends living in a nursing home that I have heard has black mold growing on the walls under the wall paper. I do not want my friends subjected to retaliation.

Signed,
Mold Spy

Dear Spy,

It depends on the nursing home. Who are you talking about reporting to? If it is a decent nursing home, they will be open and willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the environment hospital-immaculate.

Report to the health department or the Nursing home

You would report it the same way anything would be reported, using regular channels–or if you actually knew the location of the moldy area (s), you might go to the local television station that does televised product testing and consumer protection.

If you are really concerned about the Nursing home, if the staff is rude or the care is lax in other ways, then by all means, report to your local health department.
