Department of Veterans Affairs employees destroyed veterans’ medical records to cancel backlogged exam requests

”It’s a numbers thing. The waiting list counts against the hospitals efficiency. The longer the veteran waits for an exam that counts against the hospital as far as productivity is concerned.”

via Department of Veterans Affairs employees destroyed veterans’ medical records to cancel backlogged exam requests.

The VA says, ‘it’s a numbers thing. We don’t give a $#it about veterans one way or another, we just don’t want to look like we’re not doing a good job’?!?!?! They get a back log and ‘don’t know how to resolve the issue’ so they just delete the appointments of people waiting for ,months for an exam?!?! And these are the people our government sent to kill and get killed?

So while the congress and president who send them to war, get an exemption from ‘obamacare’ so they can be sure to have decent care, the people they send off to war, who’ve lost limbs and suffered great damage,  are stuck wiht a system that simply deletes them if they are inconvenient, or might make them look as ineffective as they are.

This is shameful.
