GAO: VA Failed to Report Bad Medical ProvidersNovember 29, 2017 |
by Benjamin Krause
A new GAO report exposes that Veterans Affairs shamefully put veterans lives at risk by failing its duty to report bad doctors and other clinicians.
The GAO report confirms a USA Today report exposing VA has concealed and avoided investigations and mandated reporting of bad health care workers for many years. Maybe if VA had followed its own mandatory reporting guidelines, veterans like Charles Ingram, the veteran who burned himself alive, would still be with us.
