WNVH receives perfect score again

All four Veterans' homes administered by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), including the Western Nebraska Veterans Home in Scottsbluff, have received perfect scores on their most recent annual Health Care System Surveys from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Other facilities included are the Eastern Nebraska Veterans' Home in Bellevue, the Grand Island Veterans' Home in Grand Island and the Norfolk Veterans' Home in Norfolk.

Lonnie Starke is Administrator at the Western Nebraska Veterans Home. Starke says the facility has received this score for the past four years, and is a tribute to the people who work at the facilities.

The facilities had no deficiencies in the areas of life safety, resident care, environment, staff training and development, dietary-food service, banking and billing services for veterans, recreation/activities, medical staff credentialing, social work, and all areas related to quality assurance and care.
