In exchange for putting their lives on the line for our country, the government is to provide our veterans free medical care at Veteran’s Administration hospitals. But what type of care are our veterans actually getting?
According to this story in USA Today, the VA has knowingly hired physicians who have had their licenses revoked, have felony convictions, extensive malpractice histories, and who have been charged with sexual misconduct including engaging in sexual relations with patients.
In the case of the psychiatrist who had been charged with sexual misconduct, but was hired anyway, he went on to have a sexual relationship with a VA patient and ended up pleading guilty in August to witness tampering for trying to persuade the patient to lie about it to federal investigators.
It is disgusting to think that treating our veterans (or any patients for that matter) in this fashion is acceptable. Shameful!
