Recently, more than 500 veterans in upstate New York received some dire news that could be classified as tragic irony: After they survived wars and occupations overseas, the very health system that was meant to protect them at home — the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) — could ultimately end up being the very thing that kills them.

Those veterans were potentially exposed to hepatitis, HIV and more after improperly cleaned endoscopes were inserted into their bodies by an employee of the Buffalo VA.
