VA clinics to get federal audit

May 15, 2014

Recent concerns over the use of alleged “secret waiting lists” have prompted Secretary Eric Shinseki of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to send out audit teams to clinics in the VA Medical Center, and that includes the West Texas VA Heealth Care System in Big Spring.

According to media reports, employees at the North Central Federal Clinic in San Antonio, the Austin Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic,and Waco Veterans Affairs Medical Center were instructed by supervisors to ensure that wait times for veterans were as “close to zero days as possible.” Employees allegedly manipulated medical appointment data in order to conceal long wait times for veterans seeking care.
