Veteran Review Resumes
State Senators resume an interim study reviewing Veterans Affairs, in particular, the quality of care at Oklahoma’s Veterans Centers.
Glenda Davenport is the interim director at the Claremore Center. She says they have a huge problem retaining qualified staff, especially in the low skill areas. She told senators that low paid staff often have poor work ethics. She says that leads to a frequent turnover of staff.
Yesterday’s meeting was the third for the committee.
The senate review started after media reports of abuse and neglect at some of the Oklahoma Centers.
