Feds Restricts Admissions at Iowa Veterans Home
MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — The federal government says it won't pay Medicare or Medicaid bills for new admissions to the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.
The Des Moines Register says the home has been fined $7,500 for violations of care standards and other deficiencies in two recent inspections.
The federal moratorium begins Saturday on new admissions for residents whose care is billed to Medicare or Medicaid.
The home's commandant, David Worley, doesn't dispute the inspection reports and says he and his staff "need to keep working hard and getting better at what we do."
The Iowa Veterans Home is run by the state.
