GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s attorney general says his office is investigating allegations of mistreatment at a state-run nursing home for veterans and is encouraging potential victims or witnesses to come forward.

Bill Schuette on Wednesday confirmed that his office’s Health Care Fraud Division started the investigation in February after an audit uncovered problems at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.

The audit said workers falsely claimed they were checking on patients, failed to properly investigate allegations of abuse and neglect, and took too long to fill prescriptions. Auditors also said the 415-resident facility provided insufficient care and had inadequate staffing levels.

    My question to my Attorney General buddy “Bill” is this? WHY aren’t you investigating the suspicious deaths and illegal corpse desecrations of ALL ELDERLY people in all nursing homes in this horrible state? I’d also like to know why your office won’t investigate the case of EDWIN H. JENNINGS. He served this country as well, so why doesn’t his life matter???? Edwin was abused, neglected, murdered and his corpse desecrated in 2005. Why don’t you care about what the pigs did to him at both St. Mary’s Living Center and the Spectrum Health-Kent Community Campus? The photos of the abuse and neglect this veteran was forced to endure before the pigs murdered him and desecrated his corpse would make you sick to your stomach, BILL! Where is JUSTICE for Edwin?
