Lawmakers Demand Investigation into WI Veterans Homes

Wisconsin lawmakers are demanding an outside investigation into the state’s veterans homes.

The budget-writing Joint Finance Committee yesterday ordered the Department of Veterans Affairs to bring someone in, and look at the staffing shortages and lack of care at both the King and Union Grove Veterans homes. Vets and their families have complained for years about poor quality care, and nurses at the homes have complained for just as long about the lack of support and people to cover shifts. The VA has said King and Union Grove are among the most problematic in the country. State Rep. Mark Born yesterday blamed Governor Evers for a ‘failure of leadership’ for the troubles at the homes.
