Delays in treatment can be devastating to patients. Even short delays can lead to catastrophic harm or wrongful death . In the case of VA Healthcare, the delays are anything but short.
In fact, veterans are often forced to wait months on end to get appointments. There is a deliberate game played by Veteran Health administrators to try to make their numbers look good while actually extending wait times.
These wait times in many cases will lead to medical negligence of patient care. Think failure to diagnose and treat cancer to get an idea what’s at stake. These cases may lead to valid medical malpractice claims against the VA.
