Schuette encourages victims and witnesses of mistreatment in the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans to contact his office

Schuette makes his ongoing investigation public to encourage others to come forward with information 

LANSING–Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is encouraging people who have resided in the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans during the last several years, or who may have otherwise been witness to patient mistreatment, to come forward with information that could help his ongoing investigation into the treatment of patients in the facility.

Schuette confirmed that his Health Care Fraud Division has been conducting an investigation into allegations of improper care at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans since February 23, 2016. This followed the February 18, 2016 Michigan Auditor General report that indicated the facility was allegedly not properly taking care of the veterans residing in the home.

While the Department of Attorney General does not always confirm that investigations are ongoing, Schuette has made this investigation public in order to encourage those who may have been residing in the facility during the last several years, who may have been witness to or victims of mistreatment, to contact his office with information they may have. Mistreatment could be physical or financial in nature.

“The men and women who have served our country deserve the very best of care. They protected our country, and now we have the duty and responsibility to protect them,” said Schuette. “If you, or someone you know, were a resident of the Home, or spent time visiting and witnessed potentially criminal misconduct, I encourage you to contact my office immediately.”

The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans is one of two State of Michigan run homes for veterans.

Schuette encourages those with information about the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans to contact his Healthcare Fraud Division at 1-800-24-ABUSE.
