Walter Reed Atrocities Nothing Compared to Salisbury VA Hospital

Walter Reed might have had mold, water damage and other depressing problems, but unexplained deaths, undiagnosed fatal illnesses, manipulated records? According to the Charlotte Observer:
U.S. Rep. Mel Watt called Friday for a review of "suspicious deaths" at the Charlotte area's main veterans' hospital after learning of a federal report that concluded some surgical care was "marginal at best."

Two other N.C. members of Congress said they were disturbed by the report and will talk with House colleagues about how to proceed.

The 2005 report, obtained this week by the Observer, found doctors and nurses at the Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury were poorly trained, cut corners on treatment, manipulated records and didn't talk enough with patients and families.
That's right. The report is from 2005. It was lost somewhere in government channels.

For more news about and for veterans from the perspective of veterans, check in on BlueNC. It appears there are quite a few veterans who are regular writers and commenters. Anglico is proposing a Veteran's Day set aside for veterans to post diaries and have them front-paged. I think it's a wonderful idea and it brought several lurkers out into the open. Obviously, others agree with me.....or I agree with them.
