The acting inspector general of the Department of Veterans Affairs told a congressional committee that his investigators have identified supervisors who manipulated appointment wait times.
It damn well better!
V A ping.
Nah - Holder will probably recommend them for bigger bonuses.
Not until they bust the grip of the public service unions. they have a death grip on the throat/s of the VA system!
Holder does not have a record of doing so and I don’t expect him to start now.
lets see them move ..foward on this ASAP
You got to be kidding ... think about it...Eric the Corrupt!
Criminal charges? I laugh with Holder in the mix. Not only will there be to criminal charges, no one will even be fired.
Forget it, Jake. It’s the gubmint.
First they need to find enough people to charge who have no tounges to speak or fingers to point up the ladder.
There is ample evidence of criminal fraud in these bureaucrats manipulating the system to get their bonuses. A federal grand jury should have been handing out indictments weeks ago. I doubt that any of these bureaucrats will spend so much as a day in jail and will get a little more than a slap on the wrist and then just retire on a full pension. Veteran’s families should be bringing civil suits and sue these SOBs for everything they have, since I doubt there will ever be any criminal action taken against them by Holder’s Justice Dept.
Shinseki is gone.
Allowed to resign without having to answer to Congress.
Here is a letter I received, as a representative of the Keystone Paralyzed Veterans of America.
In mid-April the Secretary of Veterans Affairs directed the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to complete a nation-wide Access Audit to ensure a full understanding of VAs policy among scheduling staff, identify any inappropriate scheduling practices used by employees regarding Veteran preferences for appointment dates, and review waiting list management. VA provided an interim Audit report to Congress and the public on May 30.
In addition to the Access Audit process, VA also gathered additional data from each facility. This data includes: the number of appointments scheduled at each facility; the number of requested appointments that are on each facilitys Electronic Wait List; the number of newly enrolled patients who have not yet been scheduled by facility; and Average Wait Times for Mental Health, Primary Care, and Specialty Care at each facility, for both new and established patients.
VA is already taking corrective action to address issues identified in the audit. Please see the attached press release which summarizes these actions.
At the below first two links you will find fact sheets explaining the data that is being posted.
You can find VHAs full audit report, as well as facility level data at the following link:
VA has also posted quality and efficiency information known as SAIL here: http://www.hospitalcompare.va.gov/index.asp
Additionally, VA has posted Mental Health Survey results from VA providers from the last two years here:
If you have questions regarding this information, please contact the Directors office at your local VA Medical Center.
Sadly they will probably be told to not get caught next time.
Ping to 14.
