LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Four Nebraska homes for veterans have each received perfect quality and care scores in a federal government review.

The homes in Bellevue, Grand Island, Scottsbluff and Norfolk are all managed by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Gov. Dave Heineman said Tuesday that the homes each scored perfectly for the second consecutive year.

The homes are graded based on factors such as safety, resident care, staff training and development, and dietary and food service.

The homes have a combined total capacity of 637 beds. They also provide medical, nursing and rehabilitative services. State officials are planning to relocate the Grand Island home to Kearney.
