3 Texas agencies vow to reform following report on alleged abuse at veterans nursing homes

Three state agencies pledged Wednesday to improve responses to abuse allegations at nursing homes, after legislators raised pointed questions about safety and management at two state-owned facilities for veterans.  One of the main changes is for the state agency in charge of regulating nursing homes to offer annual training to law enforcement officers on how to investigate allegations of harm to the elderly.
