  1. This was hard to read in fact I stopped reading it. To this day I believe the VA is the reason my hubby died. He was diagnosed with back problems and treated. He was over medicated all at the hands of the VA. We found out in Jan 2012 stage 4 cancer, given 3-6 months to live and he passed less than 30 days later. I said to him one day “keep messing around with the VA you will be dead”! Darn if he not dead! Our veterans deserve better! So much better! My sincere condolences to the family.

Expect more avoidable deaths and illnesses in hospitals and ERs, especially among patients who have limited medical knowledge and nobody to monitor their treatment and advocate for their medical safety. Diversity, inclusiveness, and mediocrity have replaced competence, quality, and excellence.
