Description
 
This report is based on a year-long investigation of Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals around the nation into the inappropriate conduct and incompetence within the VA that led to well-documented deaths and delays. It also exposes the inept congressional and agency oversight that allowed rampant misconduct to grow unchecked. Author Senator Tom A. Coburn states, This report shows the problems at the VA are worse than anyone imagined. The scope of the VAs incompetence - and Congress indifferent oversight - is breathtaking and disturbing....the problems at the VA are far deeper than just scheduling. Over the past decade, more than 1,000 veterans may have died as a result of the VAs misconduct and the VA has paid out nearly $1 billion to veterans and their families for its medical malpractice. As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources. But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
