New Administrator Named For Veterans Home, Report Released

A new temporary administrator is being announced for the Rhode Island Veterans Home in Bristol. The state Office of Veterans Services says it'll be Paul Murgo, whose experience includes administrator at Eleanor Slater Hospital. On Thursday, a Rhode Island National Guard-conducted review of the Veterans Home, which has cost millions of dollars over-budget to run, was released to Governor Gina Raimondo. It found problems including staffing shortages causing more overtime and recommended hiring additional staff.
