“The two top administrators at Hastings Veterans Home are out of their jobs after state investigators concluded that director of nursing Connie Ball mistreated workers by creating a “fearful environment,” and that the administrator failed to intervene.

“Staff members appeared to be sincerely afraid of Ball, [describing] behaviors such as raising her voice at staff members, screaming, ripping paper, openly belittling staff, swearing, name-calling, slamming her hand on the table … and displaying an overall negative attitude,” said the report, by the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, which operates the home.”
