VA Continues Notification Process for Veterans Affected by Reprocessing Issues
Date:4/3/2009

to provide those who have served and sacrificed for our Nation the care they deserve."

VA is continuing the process of testing and counseling Veterans who may be affected by this issue. The Department has added additional personnel at its Murfreesboro, Augusta and Miami hospitals to ensure that affected Veterans receive prompt testing and appropriate counseling. It is attempting to locate individuals whose letters have been returned as undeliverable, and to reach out to homeless Veterans with no known address. Affected Veterans are notified about their test results as soon as their results are verified.

"The VA prides itself on being accountable and we are extremely concerned about this matter and as a result we have initiated an investigation," said Kussman. "Additionally, we are making sure to take corrective measures to ensure Veterans have the information and the care necessary to deal with this unacceptable development."

VA is committed to reducing and preventing inadvertent harm to our patients as a result of their care. The Department is a leader in the health care industry in developing and nurturing a culture of safety at all its facilities. Patient safety managers at all 153 VA hospitals lead VA's 280,000 employees in efforts to reduce and eliminate harm.

VA patients and their families may call 1-877-575-7256, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for additional information.
