According to reports, the orphanage was established in 1983 and was originally a public welfare institution managed by the Putuo District Civil Affairs Bureau. In 1998, the orphanage was included in the “Practical Project” of the Shanghai Municipal Government, with a total investment of 10 million yuan. In 2017, under the trend of “public and private” nursing homes, the welfare home was contracted by Liu Zhu and Liu Yinghua.
In 2013, Liu Zhu and his son Liu Yinghua jointly established Shanghai Yijiayuan Medical Care Enterprise Management Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Yijiayuan Company). Since then, Liu Zhu has successively contracted Changshou Road Street Nursing Home and Baida Nursing Home from the Civil Affairs Bureau of Putuo District.

The report mentioned that while the territory of nursing homes was expanding rapidly, Liu Zhu did not hesitate to ignore the services and management of nursing homes in order to reduce costs.
The employee of the welfare home revealed that after Liu Zhu contracted the contract, he changed the schedule of nurses to a 24-hour hospitalization model, that is, nurses had to live in the welfare home 24 hours a day, with only one or two days off each month. Before the takeover, a nurse in the welfare home had to take care of 6 elderly people. After Liu Zhu took over, a nursing worker had to take care of 9 to 10 elderly people.

I haven’t wiped or showered for a month, I have bed sores, and starvation is a common occurrence.”
Several employees said that in order to reduce costs, Liu Zhu usually recruits retired doctors or village doctors, and his salary is only 5,000 to 6,000 yuan per month. The configuration of the infirmary is also very simple, generally only some simple equipment such as blood pressure monitor and stethoscope.
According to the report, despite the poor management, the nursing home managed by Liu Zhu and his son has repeatedly won awards and subsidies from the Putuo District Civil Affairs Bureau. In 2021, 5 nursing homes under the Yijiayuan Company of Liu Zhu and his son will be awarded the “rewards instead of supplements” by the Civil Affairs Bureau, and the total number of nursing homes in Putuo District will be 13.
