Audit: VA supervisors told schedulers to lie

Audit: VA supervisors told schedulers to lie story image

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new internal audit of the Veterans Affairs health care scandals shows supervisors told schedulers to lie.

About half of the schedulers at several VA hospitals say they had to falsify reports about wait times for patients trying to see doctors.

This made their centers look better and allowed for top officials to get bonuses.

The VA says it will discipline six employees over the issue.
     
A new Veterans Affair Secretary is in place, and as the August recess gets closer, Congress needs to move quickly to approve a compromise bill to repair the VA and veterans' health care.

The House could vote on the $17-billion bill as early as Wednesday, with a Senate vote expected soon before lawmakers take off this weekend for a five-week recess.

The legislation is intended to help veterans avoid long waits for health care, hire more doctors and nurses to treat them.
