MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - The wife of a former Iowa Veterans Home resident has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the facility, alleging its staff didn’t properly care for her husband.

Sharon Greer, who is representing Rose Wilson, tells the Marshalltown Times-Republican (https://bit.ly/1DyDLBt ) that the lawsuit stems from medication issues and how care was handled after Vern Wilson allegedly fell at the veterans home located in Marshalltown.

A representative at the facility declined to comment on the allegations and pending lawsuit, which was filed April 10. The Iowa Attorney General’s Office didn’t return a message from the newspaper prior to publication Tuesday.

The Iowa Veterans Home is the largest in the U.S. and the only such facility in Iowa. It houses and cares for eligible veterans and their spouses.
