“The new head … lamented what he sees as a constant negative focus.” So, they will solve it with a committee. That is the complaint of the new head as taken from the link above.
There is already a report by the Inspector General with this as the first paragraph:
This interim report provides an overview of our ongoing review at the Phoenix Health Care System (HCS), identifies the allegations we have substantiated to date, and provides recommendations that VA should implement immediately. Allegations at the Phoenix HCS include [SIZE=1]gross mismanagement of VA resources and criminal misconduct by VA senior hospital leadership, creating systemic patient safety issues and possible wrongful deaths. While our work is not complete, we have substantiated that significant delays in access to care negatively impacted the quality of care at this medical facility[/SIZE]. (I added the bold)
You can read the full report here.
As far as I know, nobody has been fired or indited. I wonder if the committee will look into that.
