“The two top administrators and an assistant at the Hastings Veterans Home have been placed on paid administrative leave while officials investigate allegations of retaliation at the state-owned home, a spokeswoman said Friday.

On leave are administrator Charles “Chip” Cox, director of nursing Connie Bell and an aide to Cox, she said. The actions were taken last week and this week.

“This doesn’t necessarily mean that they did something wrong,” said Anna Long, spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, which operates the home. “It will be easier for people to talk to us if those administration people are not present at the home.”
