As some of you may know there are 3 kinds of lies, lies, damn lies and statistics and the VA uses them all.
Once again we can thank a whistleblower for bring this to our attention.
Even with CHOICE in place due to the VA creating fake wait lists to make their numbers look better than they were and damn the veterans who suffer.
It continues at the Denver Veterans Affairs and we’ve lost at least one veteran that we know about.
“Rep. Mike Coffman, said in an interview that the local VA’s behavior reminded him of the 2014 VA scandal in Phoenix. Investigators there found that at least 35 patients died while waiting for care and medical staff falsified records to make it seem veterans were being seen promptly.”
“At the end of the day it’s the veterans who suffer,” said Rep. Mike Coffman
DENVER (AP) – A watchdog arm of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs said Thursday that the agency’s Denver-area hospital violated policy by keeping improper wait lists to track veterans’ mental health care. Investigators with the VA Office of Inspector General confirmed a whistleblower’s claim that staff kept unauthorized lists instead of using the department’s official wait list system.
