MADISON, Wis. — Concerns about treatment of veterans at Wisconsin’s largest veterans home will be investigated.
The co-chairs of the Legislature’s Audit Committee said Wednesday they support approving an audit for the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King.
The push to look into King has intensified since the Cap Times published a story on Monday raising questions about dismal care, medical errors and prolonged staffing shortages.
Gov. Scott Walker’s spokesman Tom Evenson says that the claims will be investigated as part of a review by the state Department of Health Services’ Division of Quality Assurance.
The Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs issued a statement noting that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has not cited a single health care deficiency in reviews done this year or last at King.
