Patient care at the problem-plagued Grand Rapids Home for Veterans’ has improved. That’s according to a report by the state Auditor General released today.

A 20-16 audit of the nursing home revealed falsified records, employees skipping room checks, and other issues. This follow-up audit found the home has made most of the recommended improvements.

Daniel Waun of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs says the state and the people running the home will continue to look for ways to improve patient services.

 

“I think they work every day to maintain the highest level of care for Michigan’s treasured veterans.”

Last month, the Attorney General announced criminal charges against 11 workers for falsifying records to cover up problems at the home.
