VA regional director on leave after dying Georgia veteran found covered in ant bites, according to an article on the WJCL website.
The Veterans Administration announced a series of changes at the Georgia assisted-living facility days after the Air Force veteran was twice found covered in ants in his bed.
Seven Atlanta VA medical center staff members were moved into non-patient care positions amid a review, and all VA personnel are being retrained in how to report urgent issues, the statement said.
In a statement to CNN affiliate WSB, the VA said the bedrooms at the facility have been stripped, cleaned and inspected for ants. Other measures taken include the removal of open containers and food in the open being removed, staff making more room visits, daily pest control, a third-party exterminator visit and a future visit by a pest specialist from the VA.See the latest posts on our homepage
