WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Senator Richard Blumenthal will take a step today in efforts to improve conditions at the West Haven VA Healthcare Center.

Today, he’ll be discussing his efforts to help clean up the facility.

Last month, a report highlighted the unsanitary conditions there, saying the operating rooms were dirty and patients with infectious disesases were being treated alongside those without them, risking the spread of disease.
