Head of Iowa Veterans Home Resigns

Updated: Tuesday, October 1 2013, 11:51 PM CDT
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The head of the Iowa Veterans Home has resigned.
   Gov. Terry Branstad said in a news release Tuesday that he's accepted Commandant David Worley's resignation. It's effective Wednesday.
   Worley said in a resignation letter that he wanted to seek other opportunities. Gen. Jodi Tymeson, the home's chief operating officer, will serve as the new commandant.
   Worley has been commandant of the Iowa Veterans Home since 2010. Former staffers criticized his leadership during a state Senate hearing in May. Employees said top managers of the home treated staff poorly and were not providing good care to veterans.
   Worley defended his work at the time and invited lawmakers to come visit the home.
