Conditions At Dayton VA Reflect National Problems, Growing Scandal
The Veteran’s Administration is at the center of a growing scandal encompassing some 26 VA Hospitals – that have been found to have excessively long waiting lists for healthcare. Several states are accused of doctoring those waiting lists to make it look like vets were getting care faster than they were, and some families of vets are saying the situation has resulted in the deaths of their loved ones. A recent investigation by the Dayton Dayton Daily News and Cox Media detailed the situation in Ohio. WYSO’s Jerry Kenney spoke Josh Sweigart, the reporter largely behind that report. Sweigart begins by telling us how that investigation was conducted.
