An equipment problem is delaying the opening of West Virginia's first nursing home for veterans in Clarksburg.

Military Affairs and Public Safety spokesman Joe Thornton says a call button system linking patients' rooms to the nurses' station had to be reinstalled.

The problem has delayed one of two final inspections.

The VA facility was expected to open this month.

The initial group of patients will be about 15 to 20. Eventually, the nursing home will house 120 patients.

The $26 million-dollar facility is connected to the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center.
