Some employees at the Fort Wayne campus of the Veterans Administration Northern Indiana Health Care System have complained about being irritated by a chemical used for floor preparation during ongoing renovations there, but officials at the facility say the VA and the contractor have monitored air and found exposure levels to be below permissible federal limits. The VA has allowed staff members who have been bothered to temporarily relocate their work areas. The VA also said there have been “no reported patient safety concerns.”
