Nebraska's veterans' home in Norfolk received a perfect score on an annual U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs health care survey.

The state's Department of Health and Human Services announced Monday that the home received the highest score for the second year in a row. The department runs the home.

A team of nurses, dietitians and a life safety code expert evaluated the environment of the facility, and the level of care and services the veterans receive. The evaluators say the facility had no deficiencies.

The facility's administrator Jerry Eisenhauer says support from staff, service organizations and volunteers helps maintain consistently high standards of care at the veterans' home.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services also has veterans' facilities in Bellevue, Norfolk, Grand Island and Scottsbluff.
