Justice Department Visits Veterans Home

(Story created: 5/22/07)

The U.S. Department of Justice visited the Tennessee State Veterans Home in Murfreesboro Monday.

Officials are trying to determine whether patients' rights have been violated.

On Monday morning, a team of investigators comprised of doctors, nurses and attorneys from Washington began a three-day inquiry.

They're reviewing patient records and medical files at the state-run nursing home for veterans.

Their visit was prompted by complaints from families about patient care at the facility.

It's a situation NewsChannel 5 first told viewers about last summer in an exclusive investigation.

Those same complaints also prompted a visit last month to the state veterans home in Humboldt.
