The Vermont Veterans Home has passed a state inspection and needs to pass one more to ensure it will keep receiving federal funds.
The home is on "special focus" status following a near-loss in funding from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services last year. That funding accounts for most of the home’s $20 million budget.
Administrator Melissa Jackson tells the Bennington Banner the inspectors from the Division of Licensing and Protection found one minor issue in Monday’s inspection, an expired medication.
The home needs to pass one more inspection to remove the "special focus" status.
