State settles suit in veteran’s death

March 10, 2007


— The state's largest nursing home for veterans paid $87,500 to settle a lawsuit claiming poor nursing care led to a patient's death in 2004.

The settlement ends a lawsuit that claimed the Wisconsin Veterans Home, which houses about 700 veterans in four separate facilities, had an untrained and inadequate nursing staff.

The home made the payment to William LaBarge's widow last month, and a judge accepted the settlement last week.
