Veteran's Affairs Scandal

Veterans neglected for years

23 Jun, 2014

A report sent to the White House by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) claims that two veterans went years without proper treatment.  The report states that one veteran was in a facility for eight years before a complete psychiatric evaluation was ever performed.  Another veteran had only one psychiatric note on his chart even though he had been an inpatient at a facility in Massachusetts for seven years.  The agency is still investigating more than 50 whistleblower reports involving health and safety allegations at VA facilities nationwide.
