Iowa, Nebraska Reports No Unauthorized VA Wait Lists
Some patients at Veterans Affairs medical centers in Iowa and Nebraska are on waiting lists for treatment, but the facilities say they're unaware of any unauthorized lists like those uncovered in other states. A regional VA spokeswoman said Thursday that Iowa and Nebraska facilities were included in a federal investigation of specific sites. Spokeswoman Sharyl Schaepe says the facilities do not expect to have any problems, but they won't know for sure until they're told what the review found. A summary of VA audits released last week showed widespread falsification of waiting list records and unreported treatment delays at facilities nationwide. Conditions at individual sites were not given.
