Congressional Hearing Taking Place Wednesday Over V.A. Hospital Deaths

 
Congressional Hearing Taking Place Wednesday Over V.A. Hospital Deaths
Posted April 9th, 2014 @ 4:00am

Veterans Care is the focus of a V-A Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

They're examining recent revelations at least 19 vets have died at V-A hospitals due to delayed treatment...some which may have happened in Florida.

It also states that more than 60 suffered serious injuries due to similar preventable reasons.

The report does not specify when these deaths/injuries occurred, or specifically naming which institutions were responsible.

Florida Representative Jeff Miller is the committee's chairman and says with a $160 billion dollar yearly budget, there are no excuses for these kinds of incidents.

The V-A claims it has already taken appropriate action such as employee transfers, warnings, resignations, and retirements.
