dy it’s in trouble with the Southern Nevada Health District. The restaurant already earned a 39-demerit inspection from the health department on Tuesday, May 2. That’s two points away from an automatic shutdown.

Inspectors found that staff wasn’t properly washing their hands and potentially hazardous foods weren’t properly cooled or held at the right temperature, while other foods weren’t protected from potential contamination. Ineffective pest control measures, unposted grade cards and a person knowledgeable about health department criteria were just some of the other nicks the restaurant was charged with by SNHD.

This is the first time the health department inspected Nagano Sushi.

The health district conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
