Concerned Veteran

Indianapolis, IN

#1 Jun 24, 2014
I recently was inside the West Lafayette Veteran's Home and would like to know who the person in charge of this establishment is. I seen absolute disgusting and deplorable conditions including cockroaches. I actually leaned against a beam and stuck to it before I knew that it was covered in grease and dirt. I believe all Veteran's should be aware of these conditions which they may be pridy too in the near future. I find it disgusting that our Veteran's must live in such conditions at all after serving the United States in such honorable means.
I have spoken with a few current employee's at the facility and find that they are under staffed in the kitchen area by close to 22% and management has no idea on how to run such an establishment. Word inside is that there is a Snack Bar which over charges our Veteran's for anything they purchase from it therefore making between $300-$400 daily off of Veteran's. My main concern would be as to where or whose pocket is this money going? Also heard reports of the nursing staff actually drugging any patient that speaks out against the Home. If this upsets you the way it does myself, then a change has to be made. The water system is also screwed up from what staff is saying, water coming out of the faucets will sit for five minutes and turn black. People this is disturbing to all involved and the employees I have chatted with are scared to say anything in fear of losing their jobs.
I say its time for someone to investigate these allegations and not from an office chair, depending on others to feed information that is incorrect such as the latest scandal in the Veteran's Administration. It's time that our leaders step up, supervise/criticize/and make major adjustments at this Home. The local media along with Indianapolis stations have been notified accordingly and it is just a matter of time before this hits the airwaves. For those in charge of this Home, you should all be ashamed for treating Veteran's with such disrespect for one as you are there to serve them with honor and respect for their service which has provided your freedom to this point in your own life's.
