After two years of investigations, the inspector general for Veterans Affairs has found that 40 VA facilities around the country are guilty of deliberately falsifying reports on wait times for clients.

To date, only 4 low level VA staffers have been fired despite the fact that supervisors ordered the falsifications of records in almost all instances.

The VA’s inspector general has released two years’ worth of reports totaling 70 investigations, finding that VA supervisors ordered employees to cook the books on wait times regularly, despite a promised crackdown on mismanagement and data manipulation by VA Secretary Robert McDonald. In some cases, investigators found that the falsifying of records at VA facilities had been going on for a decade.

  1. In the many decades i have been going to the V.A. i have learned it is anything but healthcare they deal in it is all about control of the Veterans. This is why they fight tooth and nail to stop vets from being able to choose their doctors as people do with medicare, medicaid, champVA and alike.
