Trump has promised to take care of our vets, our most sacred citizens. He has given millions of dollars to charities that support Vets and has promised an overhaul of the VA.
Because it is simply not properly serving the men and women who have served this country so faithfully for so many years. It is failing these brave soldiers. How badly?
The VA just announced that 592 veterans may be infected with Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV after they received care from one dental provider in Wisconsin from Oct. 2015 to Oct. 2016.
The Tomah VA Medical Center Director Victoria Brahm said,
“The dentist was using his own equipment, then cleaning it and reusing it, which violates the VA’s regulations.”
“It was purposeful that he was violating VA regulations,” Brahm said. “During all of the orientation, he used all of our equipment. He used it appropriately, so it was very purposeful from what we found in our investigation that he knew exactly what he was doing, and preferred to use his own equipment against procedure.”
Army vet Jan Gross told Weau News
“I don’t think they are paying them enough to keep good support staff and keep the main stay help for the VA so we suffer. People get frustrated, I see guys sick and tired of just waiting that they just walk out and don’t come back,”
To add insult to injury the dentist has not been charged criminally and has not even been fired, instead he has been placed in an administrative role.
You can bet when Trump takes office not only with that dentist be fired and charged criminally, but our vets will start getting the care they deserve.
