The renovation will see power lines upgraded, and smoke detectors and video surveillance systems installed in the nursing homes within three years.
After the inspection of the provincial department, a series of measures will be rolled out to benefit people, said Chu Qingyi, director of Nanyang Civil Affairs Bureau. The city will also launch a three-month campaign to eliminate problems in its civil affairs system.
The provincial department spoke highly of the efforts made by Nanyang, which has set a good example for the province to strengthen the regulation of nursing homes and provide better services.
