Hines VA Hospital staff working to rid kitchen of roaches

CHICAGO (AP) — Officials of Hines Veterans Administration Hospital outside Chicago say they have addressed the finding of cockroaches in food preparation areas and on serving trays handed patients. The VA inspector general last year found the problem was persistent and hospital leadership knew about the unsanitary conditions and didn’t resolve the problem. Hines spokesman Richard Fox says hospital officials have been addressing the issues on a daily basis, which has resulted in dramatic improvements.
