Taking care of the brave men and women who protect our freedoms is a huge priority for me. There have been some concerns with the treatment and care received by veterans at the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King. As a member of the Legislative Audit Committee, I voted for an audit of King to make sure our veterans get the care they need and deserve.
I'm happy to report the audit from the non-partisan Legislative Audit Bureau came back with some good news.
The audit also showed that
based on a federal five-star rating system, the
combined overall rating for King's four residence facilities exceeded the average ratings for other
skilled nursing facilities in Wisconsin.
I will continue to monitor the progress being made at King and the other veterans facilities in Wisconsin, especially staffing issues. However, I am very encourage by the improvements so far.
As always, if you have any ideas on how to improve our great state, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at
