Medical Negligence Investigation Expands To 26 VA Hospitals

More details are emerging concerning allegations of medical malpractice, negligence and mismanagement of patients at VA hospitals around the country, with President Obama calling for an in-depth investigation into the scandal surrounding these institutions.

In fact spokeswoman for the Inspector General at the Veterans Affair Department has indicated that 26 facilities across the nation are now under investigation.

Initial reports have indicated that many patients have died while awaiting treatment at one of these facilities – with scores of patients requiring immediate care being placed on wait lists rather than receiving the necessary treatment. According to initial reports, such allegations are just the tip of the iceberg concerning the mishandling and improper treatment of VA patients. While the investigation continues, we urge you to immediately consult with an experienced California medical malpractice attorney if you believe that you or a loved one has been harmed as the result of treatment at a VA facility.

Allegations compromising the care of patients include:

  • Wrongful death as the result of the misdiagnosis of a medical condition;
  • Failure to properly monitor and care for patients; and
  • Delays in treating patients

As a California medical malpractice law firm dedicated to patient safety, we are hopeful that the horrific treatment exposed as the result of this investigation will lead to improved conditions for patients throughout all facilities. For more information or if you believe that you or a loved one has been harmed as the result of treatment received at a VA or any other hospital, please contact the experienced California medical malpractice lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson for an immediate, confidential consultation.
