Yet another case of vets subjected to gross neglect

Special to SEGAZINE

A just-released audit by the Department of Veterans Affairs reports that many of the 4,000 patients the Atlanta VA Medical Center referred to an independent contractor apparently “fell through the cracks.”

The tragic and eminently avoidable fates of three vets in the system are ample reason to suspect some of these cracks are yawning chasms.

Over the last two years, the Atlanta hospital reportedly has lost track of mental health patients, including at least one who committed suicide and two others who died of drug overdoses, one of which might or might not have been intentional.
