Payoffs alleged at assisted living centers

State officials received a complaint in 2007 alleging that residents at the Ambassador Senior Retreat, an assisted living home in Mira Mesa, were overmedicated and underfed and that the food they were served was not healthy.

State inspector Conchita Valero was dispatched and found no such problems. “When I arrived at the facility, the residents had just finished lunch which was garlic bread, chicken alfredo, broccoli and lemon cake,” Valero wrote.
