A state Senate panel will hold a hearing to review the quality of care at the Iowa Veterans Home.

The Monday meeting comes after more than 40 former staffers signed a letter that was printed in a local newspaper complaining about the current leadership at the home.

A news release from Senate Democrats says David Worley, the commandant of the Veterans Home, will testify at the hearing.

The home in Marshalltown is Iowa's largest nursing home and among the biggest in the nation for veterans and their spouses. The home is made up of two separate facilities. One provides nursing care for about 500 residents. The other is a residential care facility where 100 more people live mostly independently.
