VA Hospital Delays Didn't Cause Deaths, Investigators Say
Date:8/26/2014

ake it appear that waiting times were reduced in the absence of any improvements.

When the Inspector General's office investigated the matter, it found 1,700 veterans waiting for primary care appointments at the Phoenix VA whose names weren't on the waiting list. Gibson said appointments have since been made for those 1,700 veterans. However, another 1,800 veterans in Phoenix who've sought appointments won't be seen for at least 90 days, he said, according to the AP.

Gibson said the VA is taking action to improve staffing and health care nationwide, sending more veterans to private doctors and firing personnel involved in administrative blunders and coverups.

For veterans who can't get in to see a doctor at VA hospitals, Congress has allocated $10 billion over three years for private medical care. Legislators also approved $5 billion to hire more VA health care providers and $1.3 billion to set up 27 new VA clinics nationwide, the news report said.
